#The Daily Spelunk

Spelunky's creator has ideas for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

It's great to see more an more successful game developers openly share their fan art with us. Snakepixel's concept for a new edition of Wario Land, Konjak's plans for a new Daisy game, Secret Base's aspirations for an officially licens...

Over the weekend, we posted the final episode of The Daily Spelunk, and you can view it here if you like. It's a delightful romp and a hefty send-off to one of my favorite projects we've done on the site.   read

The Daily Spelunk
In today's Daily Spelunk, we witness a little reversal of fortunes. Jordan used a lot of resources early in his run and wound up in a precarious position upon arriving in an unexpectedly hostile Black Market. Meanwhile, as I...   read

The Daily Spelunk
Only recently, after months and months of playing Spelunky, was it brought to my attention that angering Kali can have truly dire consequences. Yes, destroying her altar -- intentionally or otherwise -- will make a bunch of ...   read

Spiky, with a chance of hubris - The Daily Spelunk

There are only a few more episodes left of The Daily Spelunk -- this is our final week, if you hadn't heard yet -- and I'm terrified Conrad and I are going to inadvertently end the show in a painful, anticlimactic way. Not to totally give ...

 
The Daily Spelunk
In today's Daily Spelunk, I abandon my usual cautious strategy in favor of reckless... well, abandon. And Jordan takes yet another crack at the Mothership stage, but will he escape this time? I suppose you'll have to watch t...   read

Close encounters of the explosive kind - Daily Spelunk

I played like a proper maniac during this installment of The Daily Spelunk, as you'll come to see within the first few levels. I couldn't help myself from flying through levels at dangerous speeds. Somehow, I made it to the Mothership agai...

Castles and Motherships - The Daily Spelunk

While today's Daily Spelunk didn't have any technical difficulties, there were some not-getting-yourself-brutally-killed difficulties. I said I'd start going for the optional stages, so that's what I did. Easier said than done, but I gave ...

 
The Daily Spelunk
Today's Daily Spelunk met with an unfortunate end, as a recording error caused us to lose the second half of Jordan's run. That's not the only unfortunate end, however, as I learn a little something about watching where I use a mattock.   read

The Daily Spelunk
Even if you screw up early on, multiple times, and whittle your health down to a mere one heart, you shouldn't count yourself out. Today's episode of The Daily Spelunk is proof of that. Conrad and I are still learning new tr...   read

The Daily Spelunk
I liked the original title "How Jordan and Conrad got their groove back" better, but that couldn't fit within our system's headline character limit. Drat! If you haven't watched this episode yet on our YouTube channel, this ...   read

It comes without warning - The Daily Spelunk

While The Daily Spelunk technically is a competition, Conrad and I have taken to rooting for one another as the series has progressed. It helps that we have such altogether different play styles, with me wanting to rush ahead whenever poss...

 
The Daily Spelunk
This has been a rough week coming off of PAX and something tells me it's going to take a few more days of The Daily Spelunk before we truly get back into the swing of things. Until then, enjoy another set of attempts. Some o...   read

The Daily Spelunk
In today's Daily Spelunk, Jordan and I discovered an unbelievable string of shops running through the entire challenge. Not only that, but there's a ton of cash to spend in them, and Jordan somehow managed to resist the urge...   read

Daily Spelunk
Today's Daily Spelunk is a bit of a shameful one. With a jetpack appearing in the second level of the mines, both Jordan and I found to impossible to pass up what should be a golden opportunity. This, of course, leads only to hijinks and death.   read

The Daily Spelunk
We have a new Daily Spelunk for your viewing enjoyment today. It's a bit weird, as we had some technical difficulties which resulted in Jordan's entire run being summarized, but we didn't want you to miss what came later, as I finally get into the depths of the temple.   read

The Daily Spelunk
In today's installment of The Daily Spelunk, Jordan and I both succumb to the worst parts of our nature and seal our fate quickly. Of course, nobody was feeling particularly hopeful at the outset. I had been playing ridiculo...   read

Daily Spelunk
Today's Daily Challenge in Spelunky was interesting for a few reasons. First, there's a bit of a shortage of available equipment in the mines. Then there's the location of the key, which seems to be more trouble than it's wo...   read

Daily Spelunky
Today's Daily Spelunk is probably our most thrilling yet. It's certainly our longest, as both Jordan and I manage to not only exceed our expectations, but venture into territory we've never visited before. Plus, we learn a little bit about a sassy customer who (as legend would have us believe) killed a whole lot of innocent young women.   read

The Daily Spelunk
We went three days without posting a Daily Spelunk and people started freaking out. No worries, my lovelies, Jordan and I are still at it. A technical hitch botched our last show and we only record on weekdays, hence the del...   read

Daily Spelunk
Today's Daily Challenge in Spelunky is one of the most generous, considerate arrangement of levels that I have ever seen in the game... with the possible exception of a nasty Black Market. Cash, prizes, it's all for the...   read

The Daily Spelunk
In today's Daily Spelunk, Jordan manages to somewhat redeem himself for yesterday's shocking performance, while I have a few more close shaves with scorpions than I'm really comfortable with. And we make a life decision regarding how not to spend the billions of dollars this games blogging thing is destined to place in our laps.   read

Daily Spelunk
Jordan and I positively adore Spelunky, and it's a love shared by quite a few of us at Destructoid, having named it the best console exclusive of 2012. But it's exclusive no more, and the PC release brings with it the tantal...   read
