Describing the game’s success, Playdigious co-founder Xavier Liard, said: "The steady sales growth and substantial reach of Dead Cells in China, followed by Europe and the USA, proves that console-like paid games can have great success technically and financially on mobile. We again want to wholeheartedly thank Motion Twin and Evil Empire for putting their trust in us, and of course the players for their loyalty and continued interest in the mobile version of the game.”

The Motion Twin Team added: "Honestly, when we agreed on the back of an envelope at a party to put DC on mobile, no-one thought that it would become the hit that it is today. It's crazy. Thank you to all the players who love to die playing Dead Cells in the subway and the toilets, you awesome masochists!"

If you haven’t tried it out yet, Dead Cells let players assume the role of a failed alchemic experiment that is exploring a massive castle that keeps changing every time they enter it. Players must figure out what happened on this island by beating everyone that comes their way. It beautifully combines various genres like a roguelike, Metroidvania, action, and platforming.
