Spelunky 2 should have online multiplayer by December

You’ll have to wait a little bit longer if you want to go cave diving with your online BFFs and/or frenemies. Blitworks had hoped to have Spelunky 2’s online multiplayer working by now, but the connection problems that caused the mode to be removed from the game before launch have proven to be a tricky fix. They’ve just announced that they’re on track for a…

Spelunky 2 patch tweaks the Olmec boss fight

It's no secret that Spelunky 2 is pretty difficult - heck, just read one of Graham's many Daily Deaths to get an idea of why. It's good, then, that the roguelike platformer's latest patch has made it so players die a little less frequently, by making it harder for physics to crush you. Not everything in this update is designed to help you out, though,…

Spelunky 2’s first few levels are now friendlier

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…

Spelunky 2 might make the early levels easier, just a bit

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…

Watch me try then die in today’s Spelunky 2 daily challenge

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…

Spelunky 2 is now out on PC too, and yup it’s great

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 2’s online multiplayer will arrive after launch

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…

Spelunky 2 is out on PS4 today, and PC later this month

Hip hip hooray, Spelunky 2 is out today! On PlayStation 4. Not on PC. We won't get it on PC for another fortnight. But... this does mean you can now read reviews of the dungeon-diving platformer and watch other people play and all that, if you don't mind first seeing its surprises through someone else's eyes. Myself, I read the start of one review, enough…

Spelunky 2 arrives next month, but probably not for PC

The good news? Spelunky 2 comes out next month! Hooray! The bad news is that, in all likelihood, the spelunkin' sequel's release will be exclusive to Sony's PlayStation tellybox. Boo, hiss, and all that rubbish. But while a PC release date remains as elusive as an eggplant, we can still enjoy a deeper dive into Spelunky's caves with developer Derek Yu.

20 years on, Jet Set Radio is still influencing developers

Okay, so technically it wasn't until 2012 that PC players got to skate, tag and grind for themselves, but June 29th marked the 20th anniversary of the original release of Jet Set Radio (or Jet Grind Radio, as it was known Stateside at the time). An anti-establishment skating action game with a killer soundtrack, Jet Set Radio was the hippest thing ever to burst onto…
