Dead Cells is a Metroid-Vania type game (Metroid + Castlevania) that has some rogue-like elements (think: Diablo, Enter the Gungeon, FTL). So the developers are calling it “RogueVania”.

You’ll need to learn to predict your enemies’ moves, discover monsters’ weaknesses, and practice levels to conquer Dead Cells. What was impossible at first will soon become easy, and you get that unique rush of accomplishment that only comes from such a challenging game.
