The sequel to one of the most-loved indie games of the few generations launches on September 15 for PS4 and September 29 for PC, and it’s already looking like a classic.
Spelunky 2 is the sequel to the critically-acclaimed roguelike platformer that received near-universal praise when it launched in 2008. Derek Yu’s follow up has some mighty big shoes to fill, then.
Blitworks’ follow-up to the original uses the randomized challenges that made the original a roguelike classic as a jumping-off point: the devs promise more depth, more tools, and more mysteries as part of the Spelunky 2 experience.
Better yet, there’s also online multiplayer: something the original was, frankly, crying out for.
So far, it’s safe to say the game is a resounding success – outlets everywhere are raving about the game and dishing out praise for the punishing 2D title.
