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...
