Update for those who want to play Dead Cells. You can change the resolution to “high resolution” in the settings to make the content legible. But you won’t be able to read the Options menu to make that change. In the main startup menu, select Options (the second option), then Video (second option), and then the “High resolution” option will be the second setting (the first checkbox). The text will be tiny, but readable. You will also want to change the controls in the settings as the A/B and X/Y are natively swapped.
