Skul: The Hero Slayer, the riveting rogue-lite 2D platformer published by NEOWIZ and developed by SouthPAW Games, just launched its latest update - a new collaboration with Motion Twin’s Dead Cells that sees the addition of The King, along with 8 other new skulls to the pint-sized hero-slayer’s repertoire. In celebration of this latest free content upgrade, Skul and Dead Cells will join forces in the “Off With Your Head Bundle” on Steam for a combined 10% off for both games, with Skul seeing a 25% off sale during Midweek Madness and for the next two weeks.
This update marks the largest post-launch content drop for Skul since its launch in January. 9 new skulls have been added to bring the total number of playable characters up to 100. The headliner is "The King". The upgraded version of The Prisoner from Dead Cells, marks the second half of our Dead Cells' crossover content.
3 Quintessence have been added and already-existing Quintessence were totally overhauled with new and stunning visual effects. Two new types of special event maps have been added, and 5 New NPCs have been welcomed to the throng of characters players can meet throughout the Skul campaign.

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'.
