Intestinal parasites - 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 decide to swit...   read

That old ball and chain - 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 af...   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 ...   read

We are momentum fiends - 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 the episode, bec...   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...   read

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 ...   read

Recordus Interruptus - 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 mattoc...   read

It giveth and it taketh away - 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 tricks every day,...   read

To hell and back - 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 is it -- this i...   read

A spelunking shopper's delight - 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 to kill the fi...   read

An irresistible temptation - The Daily Spelunk

Generous gifts of the goddess - The 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 worth. But the da...   read
