Dead Cells, the indie rogue-lite platformer, received a major update recently. The Breaking Barriers Update bought tons of new features and made the game more accessible. However, it also introduced some new bugs.

The developer, Motion Twin, released a hotfix that addressed some of these issues. Since it's just a hotfix, it's solely focused on bug fixes, so don't expect any new content. The glitchy sound effects are fixed and the stat icon will no longer be misaligned.

The bug where players couldn’t use the down input with the analog stick on controllers is finally fixed. The developer also says that if the issue persists, you need to set the controller setting to default and the problem should go away.

You can read the changelog below.
