Dead Cells (The Bad Seed DLC)
Motion Twin have announced that Dead Cells is getting some paid DLC in Q1 2020, called The Bad Seed. It will cost $4.99, and will include the following:
- two new biomes
- new chill-inducing monsters
- all-new weapons
- an “exceedingly creepy” boss battle
Here’s some details:
The Bad Seed DLC introduces new path choices in the early game ensuring that all players, no matter their level, will be able to enjoy it. Players will discover two new biomes inhabited by their own distinctive bestiary; The Arboretum, a lush paradise to deceivingly adorable creatures, and The Swamp, where an overgrown arboreal settlement inhabited by ambushing blow gunners and spear wielders is your only escape from the gargantuan purple ticks that reign uncontested on the ground.
Triumphing over the numerous perils, built by the Dead Cells devs with as much love as sadism, will be rewarded with a conceptually unique armoury, including the first double slot weapon as well as a very dedicated and loyal mushroom companion. Of course, vengeance visited upon the monsters and challenging new biomes that once slowed you down is its own reward, but a few new weapons never hurt anybody.
Motion Twin specify that this paid DLC does not market the end for free content updates. Moving forward, they will keep releasing free updates bringing more content, balancing, and systemic updates, and at the the same pace as in 2019. In fact, the revenue generated by the paid DLC will be used to keep expanding the base game.

PQube have announced that Ciel Fledge will be released on February 21st in Europe and North America.
Here’s some gameplay footage and some more details for the game:
1. Home, Sweet Home Your lovely flat on ARK-3 is your daughter’s new home and the place where you interact with each other. Here you can chat with her about how she feels or how it goes with her friends, customise her outfits, check current stats, traits or relationships, save the game and set up the schedule for upcoming week! Dominik’s Note: Playing around with different outfits is a lot of fun, but my daughter usually ended up wearing a stylish dress/jacket combo like Marnie from the new Pokémon!
2. The Schedule The schedule is the backbone of Ciel Fledge and defines the activities of the upcoming week for both your daughter and yourself. Activities for her can be classes, like art or arithmetics, hobbies like gymnastics, meeting friends or simply rest. Since you need to bring home the bacon (or whatever they prefer in the year 3716), your choices are limited to the amount you will work this week in comparison to how much time you spend with your girl. All of this affects your daughter’s mood, how much money you have available and – ultimately – who she becomes as a person. Dominik’s Note: I am a big fan of the 4-day work week concept, so my daughter has Wednesdays off in addition to Saturdays and Sundays. This has a negative effect on her discipline, so I signed her up for several sports classes and try to spend extra time with her whenever the budget allows!
3. Encounters Once the schedule is set, you can sit back and watch as the week unfolds. Depending on her activities, she can run into a wide variety of encounters with a colourful cast of characters, that all grow and change with your daughter over the years. Dominik’s Note: The random encounters were a bit scary at first, because you immediately start caring for your digital daughter and can’t control what influence they will have on her! Most people she met so far were pretty cool, though, and I guess it’s part of the experience!
4. Challenges The challenges your daughter faces – be it a test at school or battling an alien – are fought out in deck-based match-3 minigames. Customise your deck and keep track of which cards you combine to attack, defend, support and power a wide selection of special moves! Dominik’s Note: Since I played loads of card games in the past – even competitively for a while – I have a good feeling of which cards are left in a deck and therefore found the minigames relatively easy! However, don’t underestimate the challenges and always remember to use all the tools available to you!

Here’s the latest trailer, some more details, and some screenshots for Rez Plz:
REZ PLZ has 1-2 players control two wizard brothers that possess the power of resurrection. While traversing through platforming challenges and solving puzzles, you will encounter dangerous monsters and traps that require you to KILL one of the wizard brothers to advance. But thanks to a magical scroll, the brothers are able to resurrect each other from a multitude of one-hit deaths, ranging from being sliced in half, eaten by creatures, burned alive and more. As you progress, you will unlock new spells that grant abilities to conquer the increasingly difficult challenges ahead, but be careful as the brothers aren’t the best at magic and one wrong spell can result in your death.
Rez Plz (Switch – eShop) does not have a release date yet.
