Review: Dead Cells: The Bad Seed

I don't know when I put down Dead Cells, but I did, and I've been meaning to get back into it ever since. The roguelike action-platformer has seen continuous support for years now, to the point where it's easy to lose track of what's coming...

30XX is a stylish roguelike take on Mega Man X and Zero

Oh my goodness, yes! The creators of 20XX, a roguelike rendition of Mega Man X, are back with a follow-up called – you probably guessed it – 30XX. The sequel uses a far more fitting art style thanks to pixel artist Glauber Kotak...

This Dead Cells map can guide you through The Bad Seed

It never hurts to have a map handy for Dead Cells, especially as new areas join the flow-chart-like world. The Bad Seed includes two early-game biomes, as well as a third area that's home to a new boss. These DLC zones are by no means hidde...

It's time to start training for Dead Cells' Bad Seed DLC

The other night, while I was poking around my PS4 library, I noticed Dead Cells and came this close to getting back into it. There's a mental roadblock in the way – I know it'll take hours of practice before I can work back up to my p...

You can (and should!) go fishing in Hades

Will 2020 be the year we all become head-over-heels obsessed with Hades? I'm not quite at that point yet, but Supergiant Games' mythological roguelike action title has only grown more compelling with each passing update. The latest Early Ac...

Down for one more run? FTL is adding 51 Steam achievements

Try as you might, you can't escape FTL: Faster Than Light – not for good. One decent run is all it takes to reel you in and remind you just how potent Subset Games' ship-managing roguelike title can be. In 2020, Subset is still breath...

Dead Cells is finally getting into DLC with The Bad Seed

Dead Cells has been super generous with free updates, and that post-launch support is not coming to an end anytime soon. Evil Empire is planning to continue releasing updates "at the same steady rhythm and of the same quality as seen in 201...

Sparklite is a cute roguelike that's best enjoyed on Switch

Far too many times I've booted up a decently technical roguelike, not liked the presentation, and decided the juice wasn't worth the squeeze. On the other side of the spectrum, visuals and charm can count for a lot in a frequently frustrati...

Nuclear Throne is worth playing for free courtesy of Epic

I will go to bat for Nuclear Throne, especially while the PC version is free on the Epic Games Store. Look, I get it. There's a near-endless supply of indie roguelike shooters in this world. So many of them blur together, and so very few a...

Contest: Get lost in Lost Castle for PS4 or Switch

In today's contest, we're giving away Switch and PS4 copies of indie brawler Lost Castle! Why are castles always haunted? Or vexxed? Or otherwise just full of monsters and stuff? Seems odd. Someone should really consider that before bu...

Downwell is free on Android

I shouldn't need to talk you into picking up a game as perfect as Downwell when it's free. Heck, you should probably already own it somewhere -- PC, Switch, PS4, mobile -- because it's only $3. But, $3 is $3, and free is free. For the ...

Dead Cells is still selling 'incredibly well' in 2019

For a game so willing to crush you at a moment's notice, Dead Cells is a surprisingly feel-good story. Whether you first got into Motion Twin's roguelite action-platformer in 2017 with the Steam Early Access version, or you started playing ...

Exit the Gungeon is a 'dungeon climber' spin-off game

Enter the Gungeon didn't inflict enough pain on this world, apparently. Game developer Dodge Roll wants us to survive another bullet-hell gauntlet. Its next venture, Exit the Gungeon, is a spin-off with the same manic vibe but a slightly di...

Risk of Rain 2 just popped up on Switch, PS4, and Xbox One

Risk of Rain 2 is a super fun roguelike. I want to give it more of my free time. But, given that it's still making its way through Steam Early Access, my play sessions have been sporadic at best. I don't want to spread it too thin too early...
