At GDC 2019, Motion Twin revealed that their acclaimed roguelike platformer, Dead Cells has sold over one million units with about 60 percent of that number accounting for PC, while Nintendo Switch is the leading console.
Dead Cells was a leap of faith for the studio, which “was not in such good shape”, in the words of developer Sébastien Bénard. Dead Cells was released on Steam Early Access in 2017 and quickly found an audience due to its unique take on the roguelike genre and polished design. The title has since its launch earned dozens of accolades around the world from international critics and has been a stunning commercial success for Motion Twin.
The highly anticipated DLC ‘Rise of the Giant’ for Dead Cells will arrive on PC March 28th.
