Spelunky HD - Coming Home to PC!

Postby Medicine Man » Wed Jun 05, 2013 4:43 pm

Yay! :D

http://spelunkyworld.com/cominghome/

The original "roguelike platformer" is returning to the place where it all started. This summer, PC owners will be able to play the XBLA reboot of Spelunky that won the 2012 IGF "Excellence in Design" Award, as well as Game of the Year Awards from publications like Gamespot and Edge. Spelunky will launch on Steam and GOG, followed shortly by the Humble Store.

Thank you to everyone who has supported Spelunky thus far - we're eternally grateful to fans of Spelunky Classic (which will remain free) and to our fans on the Xbox 360. We can't wait for PC, PS3, and PS Vita owners to join the HD adventure!

See you this summer!

So is it like Terraria with even more 'retro' graphics?

Not unless they changed the game since it was out.

Having a ton of fun with this over the last few days. Even playing with the kids. It's great.

The daily challenge stuff pretty cool too...



Trouble is I don't have any friends. Anyone else playing it care to add me? Or I could add you. Either way's good. :)

Why it needs a 3.0ghz dual core processor is unknown.

I still play the original one from time to time, just no urge to get this one.

Is this worth the £12 on Steam? Thinking of picking it up.

I'm obviously biased, but I think so. Although I only paid £10 for the preorder. I play it every day and have done since I got it. Daily challenge is a superb feature.

Realistically though I think it may be a little on the expensive side. £7-8 would be a very alluring price point indeed. And tbh, at this point in its life I would imagine you should start to see it on daily/weekend sales soon.

So unless you're completely desperate to play now I'd wait it out a few weeks to see if the price drops.

Played it, died, played more, died more, played a bit more, died more, got a little bored of identikit dungeons and not played since.

It is a good game, worth a couple of pints I would suggest (the measure by which all games cost needs to be judged). It didn't grab me by the plums though.
