Surely the cosmos are in perfect alignment for the indie game developer this year. Cave Story and La Mulana are making their way to WiiWare, and now Derek Yu's cave exploring masterpiece, Spelunky, has been revealed as a 2010 XBLA release. Someone pinch me! I must be dreaming!

The official website for the XBLA version went up yesterday to deliver the awesome news. Like both Cave Story and La Mulana before it, the release won't be just a straight port of the free-to-play PC version. In addition to getting a visual and audial overhaul, it will have "other features for XBLA users". What these other features are (well, besides acheivements) remains unknown. What the game's going to look and sound like are also a mystery at this point. But hey, just the fact that another of the best indie games I've ever played is being enhanced and making its way to a console is enough to make it an instant buy. It's also great to see Yu branching out into the home console world, and putting himself in a position where more people can give him money and enjoy his excellent product.

While anxiously awaiting more information and a less vague release date, why not check out the free PC release? That is, if you haven't managed to be coerced into it already. Version 1.0 of the game has just been released alongside the XBLA news, so whether you're already hooked or a newcomer, you should give Spelunky a download for the brand new features this version adds!

Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake is not as simple as it looks

Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake saw success on Kickstarter, and it's coming along nicely as evidence by our interview at PAX East. It looks super cute and simplistic, but there's way more depth than you'd imagine here. A deep ...more

The Darkest Dungeon gods were kind to me

Hot off its huge Kickstarter success, Darkest Dungeon is already in a playable-enough state to have a demo at PAX East 2014. Although the demo was only a short snippet of what's to come, it was easy to get a sense of the them...more

Punch frogs, get paid: New Curses 'N Chaos trailer

We got a brief look at the new Tribute Games joint, Curses 'N Chaos, at PAX East. It's a pared-down, arcade-like action game about two players cooperating to clear waves of foes before the timer hits zero. Super simple, but ...more
