When we were doing interviews for the film, one of the questions we’d routinely ask is ‘what is an example of great game design’ and very often the answer would come back: ‘Spelunky’.
As many designers told us, Spelunky is an example of random generation done right. Expertly tuned, crafted and really engrossing, you should check it out & consider picking it up on Steam, Gog or XBLA.
We thought we’d use today’s occasion to share the ‘Spelunky’ piece featured on the Indie Game: The Movie - Special Edition.
UPDATE: The Spelunky launch celebration has now passed. You can check out the Spelunky short film that we previewed last week in the Special Edition. The Special Edition is an extra 100+ minutes of epilogues, deleted scenes, short films and content like the piece below. Read more about it here, or pick it up on our website, Steam or the 3 disc box set (with even MORE content).
