Our last Daily Spelunk

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.

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 decide to switch up my usual strategy in anticipation of future violence, I make my way into the innards of a worm. Delightful.

We also want to make sure to give a shout-out to Simon Beaudoin, who provided us with the incredibly awesome art you'll see in this episode. I'll be making said art available for your personal use, if you're so inclined, tomorrow when we post our final episode of 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 spiders come after you. Most of us realize this, I'm sure.

But if you take down a second altar? (Or, even worse, a third?) You'll be stuck with a ball and chain, as shown in today's episode of The Daily Spelunk. This probably goes without saying, but I'd advise against fighting a horde of starved piranhas when you've got something so heavy strapped to your leg. I regret nothing.

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 t...

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 the episode, because I'm not going to tell you here. Nyah, nyah.

Also, a bit of bittersweet news: This is the last week we'll be doing The Daily Spelunk. We want to pack in as much of what you want to see as we can in the final week of episodes, so make sure to get your special requests in and we'll try our damnedest to accomplish them in the time we have left.

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 ...

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 it my best. Be sure to watch for run-ins with the Haunted Castle, the Flooded Cavern, and the Mothership.

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.

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 tricks every day, thanks in large part to viewers like you. At one point in my run, I was sprayed by a mummy's vomit with the Kapala equipped. We weren't one-hundred percent sure that this had a beneficial effect on my health, but yes, it did. Special thanks to YouTube commenter elPajolero for confirming this.

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 is it -- this is the one to see. Strap in, because it's a long one.

In addition to the debut of a new microphone, this footage captures my first time successfully clearing hell in Spelunky. And Conrad had a very respectable run as well. I'm now deathly afraid we're going to completely botch tonight's Daily Challenge. Such is the way of Spelunky.

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 ahea...

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 of you enjoy watching us die miserably, don't you? Conrad and I at least got to show off the optional Worm level this time.

Speaking of PAX, we were blown away by the positive feedback we received from fans of the show. We're incredibly appreciative and the kind words mean a lot. In case you missed it, this is actually our second post-PAX Daily Spelunk -- the prior installment didn't get its own post on Destructoid, so if you aren't subscribed to our YouTube channel, here you are.

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 to kill the first one he saw (don't worry -- it doesn't last). Meanwhile, I learn a little something about respecting boundaries, though I'm still not entirely sure where those boundaries lie.

As noted in the video, we're headed off to PAX, so this is the last episode of The Daily Spelunk for this week. We'll be back with more on Wednesday morning.

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.

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.

The sad, short tale of Mr. Greedy and Mr. Speedy photo
The sad, short tale of Mr. Greedy and Mr. Speedy
by Conrad Zimmerman

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 ridiculously poor in the few warm-up rounds I had time for, while Jordan made it all the way to Olmec only to bite it mere seconds before we started recording and I think it really shattered his confidence.

None of this should be construed as an excuse for what you are about to witness here.
