"Legends speak of a Colossal Cave that extends deep underground, so twisted by time that its passages shift like the sand under which it lies... the Cave is said to be filled with fabulous treasures, but also incredible danger!"

Spelunky is a cave exploration / treasure-hunting game inspired by classic platform games and roguelikes, where the goal is to grab as much treasure from the cave as possible. Every time you play the cave's layout will be different. Use your wits, your reflexes, and the items available to you to survive and go ever deeper! Perhaps at the end you may find what you're looking for...

Don't be afraid to die! But also don't be afraid to live! Happy Spelunky-ing!

@WyattEpp Overall, the 4x rate on GFEs seems like it lives up to the hype.

@WyattEpp Haha, the Meimei System! Is Zuoh any good without her? Kaede seems cool!

@Eiyeron Yeah, that game is not so good. And it's by Konami!

So yeah, I pulled D.Kali in today's Godfest and max skilled her in 10. This is after getting Superman in one roll. Goodbye, luck. #PAD

@TronKnotts And some kind of sewer skateboarding minigame like the special stages in Sonic 2: T.co :)

@TronKnotts Getting spotted too many times in the top-down part will force you back to the sewer for a time and let the Foot gain territory.

Sep 30 2015

@TronKnotts Regular missions are randomly-generated, special missions are unlocked when you win enough territory back from the Foot Clan.
