Derek Yu’s platformer roguelike Spelunky is quietly one of the most influential games of the past decade. Now he’s back with a team of indie standouts, and they’ve collaborated to make 50 new games with a twist: the story is that they were created by a fictional company in the ‘80s that was “obscure but ahead of its…
I’ve been waiting for another game to grab me like Spelunky did, and while it’s still early days, it seems like Enter the Gungeon might be up to the task.
It’s rare that gamers ever get to hear the full story behind how (and why) a game was made. So it’s awesome that Derek Yu, the creator of Spelunky, has written a book that does just that.
Spelunky is insane. People who speed run Spelunky are insane. Someone just broke the Hell speed run world record for Spelunky. Guess what: it’s insane.
I’ve played more than 100 hours of Spelunky. Olmec? No problem. Yama? Done. Speedlunky? Did it on PC and Vita. But that didn’t stop this world record run from making me feel terrible.
Evolve pits four players against one in a brutal fight to the death. That is, unless you decide to start jumping rope with the monster.
If a dance pad controller is good enough for Dark Souls, it's good enough for Spelunky. Plus clips from Destiny, Shadow of Mordor, and more!

Spelunky players just refuse to give up. It makes sense, considering the game they've chosen to spend so much time playing. The world record for highest possible score has been beaten, with an amazing run by YamaYamaDingDong.
I don't know how this game went this long without this mod, but that doesn't really matter: Here it is, at last, Spelunky done Metroid-style. The title screen and music alone should fire you right the hell up.
