Spelunky 2

Mossmouth took us by surprise when it announced that Spelunky 2, a sequel to the acclaimed rogue-like platformer, was in development. That was in 2017 during Paris Games Week and though the title was planned to release this year, we’ll have to wait longer. According to founder Derek Yu on Twitter, β€œthe density and detail of the game is demanding more time.” This means it won’t be releasing in 2019.

Development is progressing smoothly and Yu noted that “we’re not far off target”. He also apologized for the lack of communication, noting that the team was often working away. More update will be coming soon but the focus right now is on development.

Yu did note that environments will be receiving more detail and increased contrast to ensure current details pop more. Once a release date has been decided, the developer will “make sure everyone knows.” Yu closed by stating that the crazy things that were being added “makes me buzz with excitement.” Spelunky 2 is coming to PS4 and PC – check out some gameplay here and stay tuned for more details in the coming year.
