Skul: The Hero Slayer Gets Dead Cells Crossover Character

Skul: The Hero Slayer

SouthPAW Games and Motion Twin are having a crossover event with Dead Cells in the latest update for Skul: The Hero Slayer.

The latest update has added a new skull called The Prisoner, which is based on the main character from Dead Cells. As with all skulls in the game, The Prisoner both alters your appearance and gives you a variety of special skills; all of which are drawn from Dead Cells.

The update also adds a variety of balance tweaks, simplifications to the stat system, and branching pathways during runs. You can read more about the update here.

Both Skul: The Hero Slayer and Dead Cells are also on sale on Steam as of this time of writing.

You can find a rundown of the game (via Steam) below:

The Demon King’s Castle in Ruins
The human race attacking the Demon King’s castle is nothing new and has happened countless times before. What makes this time different though, is that the Adventurers decided to join forces with the Imperial Army and the ‘Hero of Caerleon’ to lead a full onslaught in hopes of wiping out the Demons once and for all. They attacked the Demon stronghold with overwhelming numbers and succeeded in its total destruction. All of the demons in the castle were taken prisoner except for one lone skeleton named ‘Skul’.

Side-Scrolling Platformer Action
‘Skul: The Hero Slayer’ is an action-platformer that boasts rogue-like features such as everchanging and challenging maps. It will keep you on your toes, as you will never know what to expect.

Tons of skulls, tons of playable characters
Skul is no ordinary skeleton. In addition to his formidable fighting skills, he can gain new and exciting abilities depending on which skull he’s wearing. Use up to 2 skulls at a time, each of which has its own unique attack range, speed and power. Choose combos that match your playing style and switch them in the heat of battle to bring your enemies to their knees. The power is in your hands!

The Adventurers
Skul has crossed paths with a party of Adventurers! They are powerful foes that hunt Demons for sport. While Skul may be small, he still packs quite a punch. So just wait and see who really is the hunter and who is the hunted….

Bosses Corrupted by Dark Quartz
At the end of every chapter, go head-to-head with massive bosses corrupted with Dark Quartz and powerful beyond belief. Derived from the pain and hate of life itself, Dark Quartz taints and takes control of everything it touches.

Skul: The Hero Slayer is in Early Access for Windows PC, Linux, and Mac (all via Steam). If you missed it, you can find our preview here.

Dead Cells is available on Windows PC, Linux, Mac (all via GOG, and Steam), Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, iOS, and Android. If you missed it, you can find our review here (we recommend it!)
