Jonathan Holmes and I have been plugging away at Guacamelee for the past week, and I have to say, it's been an incredibly positive experience. Alongside of solid Metroidvania action, DrinkBox Studios created a memorable world that will stay with you even after the story is over and done with.
Partly, it's due to how much charm and humor the game exhibits at every turn. Clearly, DrinkBox is a huge fan of retro and modern gaming alike, and you won't be able to help yourself from snickering at at least a few of the clever references made in Guacamelee.
If you don't want the references spoiled for you, obviously don't check out the gallery below!
