I’m Kinglink and…. Well, 2020 sucks, doesn’t it? Let’s just talk about some games?
So for my final video each year, I like to talk about what games I played in a year, and which games were the best that I would recommend to everyone. This year I made a database of every game I played and it’s something I’m trying to do going forward. I ended up with 115 games played outside of games I covered for Humble Bundle, a total of over 250 games.
Dead Cells is a side-scrolling rogue-lite with a huge focus on enjoyable and deep combat. It’s a game made to challenge the player and provide many hours of entertainment for those who fall for. It’s also brutally hard at times.
But that’s par for the course in the rogue-lite genre. Dead Cells starts with the player waking up in a dungeon with a weak sword and being told to escape. Like many rogue-lites, the path is long and dangerous, and players will almost certainly fail. Each new run will give players randomized maps and new challenges. However the goal remains the same, the order of the levels, as well as the enemies faced, will similarly not change.
