"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!

Hmmm, not sure if this screen is adequately conveying the fact that the player has reached a failure state... T.co

@patrickklepek @aeiowu I would say that it's indifferent to you if you hate it, but if you learn to love it for what it is, it loves back!

@aeiowu @patrickklepek I think people are tired of how hard games try to get you to like them these days.

@aeiowu @patrickklepek But yeah, it's totally not just that the game is "masochistic" or "NES hard". I think that aspect is more incidental.

@aeiowu @patrickklepek You get that feeling in a lot of small indie titles, but rarely do you get it in a title of this magnitude.
