Noticed there wasn't a forum for this game, so thought i would make one.

There has been an animated advert for it:

Have anyone already bought it? I have seen some critic reviews, but before spending money it would nice to hear some gamer feelings.

I would like to buy this one digital, so I could jump in for some action wherever I want. This makes me hestitate to buy though - game is not the cheapest one...

I bought it and goddamn I love it. Managed to reach the first boss The Concierge yesterday but got wiped out instead haha... Need to do more dodge rolls.

@kosmaty I would think that Steam Reviews will give ideas on how the game plays better though, especially recent reviews.

@darkfenrir Have you played Hyper Light Drifter? Is the feeling of combat similar? I liked that game, I'm unsure about this one due to the rogue-like aspects.

@Octane Sorry I haven't played Hyper Light, I was interested but... it just looks too difficult for me (especially getting through those super-fast-slamming-into-you-boxes) o(--<

i'm sorry if the notif is too much, the site keep erroring on me

@darkfenrir I don't remember any ''super-fast-slamming-into-you-boxes''

Gameplay of Dead Cells looked just as hectic if not more. I'm definitely interested.

Do you know if there's any story or lore to the whole game, or is it just beating enemies? And it's not procedurally generated, or is it?

@Octane Lol, it's quite an early dungeon one I think. I remember seeing it in one of the Let's Play video...

The gameplay of Dead Cells is really good imo, and I especially enjoy the hit-n-run tactics of throwing traps and just let it destroy enemies... (Well, the melee build is fun too)

There's some story / lore yes, but it's very sparse. Like when I was exploring I would see a prison cell, or something like an order by the King on what to do on the Ramparts and such. Also something like an empty room with a small hole. It's very, very sparse but it's enjoyable what it showed.

And it's procedurally generated], but iirc it's a bit more like Spelunky so it's not just pure random.

The dev talk about it here.

@darkfenrir

Thanks for the reply. It helps me great to imagine, how the game feels. I am much more eager to buy it now. My poor wallet will take another hit because of you

darkfenrir

@kosmaty I hope you have fun with the game! I definitely enjoys it a lot, and the extra adding of lores with this 1.0 version definitely helps with it

Amazing game, so addictive. Reached the second boss who promptly kicked my arse.

@darkfenrir This game is sooo my style - thanks for recommendation! It can be frustrating sometimes though. I had a great equipment and was going through Ramparts like a GOD and than this shiny, cursed chest showed. Couldn't help myself. I opened it and it cursed me that I cannot be hit with ANY attack unless I kill 10 oponents... any hit equals death...
Yeah. It was pretty fast ending.

kosmaty

darkfenrir

@kosmaty Glad you enjoy it! I still refuse to go to open ANY of the cursed chest though haha

I have heard the horrors! (And it seems you have faced the horrors straight on rip)

It's ok, the more you play, the more you'll get better at this game

darkfenrir

kosmaty

@darkfenrir I already see big progress. My favourite tactic is frozing enemies and attack in melee - it works great for me. If not this cursed chest, my last guy would be pretty successful...

I was too greedy...

kosmaty

darkfenrir

@kosmaty Well, sometimes the greediness got rewarded, so I understand why xD

Just need to be better next time o/

Is this game hard...
Or suitable or someone just above a casual gamer?

Well I'm pretty average at games honestly. Nothing special. And while it gets real tough at particular stages, I don't feel discouraged because you can unlock better stuff for your guy to improve your chances.

Okay, cool.... I like games that are similar to this or at least have adjustable difficulty.

I usually hate these types of games but I’m loving this one it’s been pretty much the only thing I’ve played this month.

I was wondering if the Game of the year edition was worth it??? It seems the shop version is cheaper and you still get the DLC content.
