Spelunky

Did Darkwood take you back to a great game you played some time ago, or maybe there's a totally unrelated new title coming out that you want to talk about? In any case, feel free to share it here!

Spelunky

Spelunky thread! If you haven't tried it, it's a punishing platformer with roguelike elements. One of my all-time favourite games, and if you've played it you might know why. One of the reasons I became interested in Darkwood was because I had heard it described as "a horror-survival game which will remind you of Spelunky and Teleglitch".
Description from the website

You can play the older PC version for free here:
Download - http://spelunkyworld.com/original.html
Play in browser - http://tinysubversions.com/game/spelunky/

Or you can find the new version on XBLA.

As it happens, there's been some awesome news for this game today. The new version will be released for PC this summer!

Anyone else a Spelunky veteran? Maybe it would be cool to share tactics and stories here.

Love this game, but even though I played the shit out of it, couldn't get past level 4 for the life of me.. Maybe now when it's coming for PC I'll try again..

So hyped for this.

Once it's released I'll finally be able to get rid of my XBOX 360!

The Steam version is going to have a daily challenge mode, with levels that are the same for everyone. The caveat; each player only has one chance per day.

Cannot wait.
