Derek Yu, creator of the original Spelunky, has given us a lovely new trailer for the sequel showing us brand new gameplay mechanics, characters and how the game looks very similar to the original. Some of the new features shown off include liquid physics which now play into the gameplay itself by helping or hindering you and each of the new characters you can play as, including a Sloth/Man hybrid!
The game looks very similar to the original but in my opinion that’s a good thing as Spelunky had a fairly retro look to it that was incredibly charming and simple to run on low end PC’s which was a godsend to many. Spelunky was huge in the speedrunning community and I shall very much enjoy trying out the next entry in the series. I just hope that there is enough variance from the last game in order to make it worth buying.
That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
