Do you feel Spelunky 2 seeds have been a bit more generous these past few days? A little less keen to murder you the second you cross the cave's welcome mat? That's not luck with the RNG, that's the blessing of designer Derek Yu. After talking last week about plans to tweak the first few levels, turns out he quietly released a patch doing just…

Today's Daily Death is a return to form, if that "form" is steady mediocrity. What I'm saying is, I reach beyond world one, but not much further. I'm much (but not that much) better than this.
Though Spleunky 2 is not an easy game nor a kind game, it doesn't actually hate you - the roguelikelike platformer just wants you to improve and become all you can be. The developers aren't monsters. In fact, they're planning to make the first set of levels, in the Dwelling biome, a little friendlier by tweaking the numbers of traps and baddies. Perhaps soon you'll…
I take back every good word I ever said about moles, but I'd also like to file a petition against horned lizards. Also altars. I hate so many things in this, my favourite game.

I was worried about being overcautious after yesterday's terrible run, in which I died on the second level. Spoilers: I was not cautious.
It's a law of the universe: any exceptionally good Spelunky daily run must be followed by an exceptionally poor run. Yesterday was execptionally good, and so...
Today's episode of the Spelunky daily includes spoilers for the game's first four worlds. Yes, this is my humble brag way of saying I got to world four on the daily challenge.
Welcome back to the Daily Death, in which I record my attempt at the Spelunky 2 daily challenge, and encourage you to do the same with your own runs. Today: the world's luckiest lava droplet.

I return for another attempt at the Spelunky 2 daily challenge, in video form. Oof, the ending of this one was frustrating.
Now that Spelunky 2 is out on PC, its daily challenge mode is available to play. If you don't know: the daily challenge is a single chance to play a set of Spelunky levels that are the same for everyone playing that day. It was my favourite way to play Spelunky 1 and it's unchanged in Spelunky 2. Part of the fun of the daily…
After plumbing the depths of PlayStations for a fortnight, Spelunky 2 arrived on PC today. Grab your whip and hat, and hit the Moon to explore new dungeons full of monsters, treasures, and ways to die while doing something you initially thought was quite clever. Online multiplayer isn't in at launch, mind, so you'll have to before you can experience the comfort/mischief/catastrophe of playing with…
Spelunky 1 felt so precision engineered, so complete, so perfect, that the announcement of Spelunky 2 seemed like the reveal of a new wrist watch. If it had a fancier strap and more cogs, at best, I'd still just be hoping that it told me the correct time.

Spelunky 2 launches on PC next week, but you'll be tackling its randomised platformer dungeons solo for a few weeks after that. "Our online multiplayer had a bit of a rocky start on PS4," Mossmouth say, and they've decided to hold that element out of the PC release temporarily instead of delaying the launch of the game entirely. Mossmouth and BlitWorks anticipate that online multiplayer…

Hip hip hooray, Spelunky 2 is out today! On PlayStation 4. Not on PC. We won't get it on PC for another fortnight.
