Spelunking Some Time Away

September 17, 2010 hydroxy

I’m really starting to appreciate the game programmers of the world now, especially the one man armies who make games solo. One game programmer I really appreciate is Derek Yu, creator of a really cool indie game called Spelunky.

Although the game has a very steep difficulty curve, it definitely does pay off to get good at it, as its a highly enjoyable and unique game, it would be best described as video gaming’s Indiana Jones, as it certainly plays like it and even has a few cunning references to the films (check out the Crystal Skull in the image above). Its definitely a must play for anyone involved in the indie gaming scene.
