Quote from:  Steam Greenlight page
Dead Cells is a roguelike, Castlevania-inspired action-platformer, allowing you to explore a sprawling, ever-changing castle… assuming you’re able to fight your way past its keepers. To beat the game you’ll have to master 2D souls-like combat with the ever present threat of permadeath looming. No checkpoints. Kill, die, learn, repeat.

I like how this game have a so fluid animation, its almost like classic Prince of Persia quality but seems to be using pre-rendered 3D (like SNES' Donkey Kong Country games) to manage that. The game seems to be fun and really deserves a chance.

I'll greenlight, but I won't ever play it. Permadeath mechanics are a VERY quick way to send me packing in the other direction.
How not to be a dark lord: the answer to that is a terribly interesting answer that involves an almost Jedi-like adherence to keeping oneself under control and finding ways to be true to yourself in a way that doesn't encourage the worst parts of you to become dangerously exaggerated and instead feeds your better nature. Also, protip: don't fuck with Alchemy or strike up any deals with ancient Japanese Shinigami gods no matter how tempting the deal or how suavely dressed the Shinigami is.

It depends, some do it right, others just fuck you dry for hours until RNGesus finally gives you something you can work with.

Random generation is too overdone. Just design a fuckin castle, you lazy bastard. The art direction looks good and the gameplay looks solid tho.

It looks great except for the disparity of visual information between the hero/enemies and the environment/flashy effects.  :\
