It seems that this is unintentionally turning into a video game blog. Oh well, video games are cool.
Anyway, the trailer for Spelunky XBLA was recently released, and it's rekindled my excitement for this game. Derek Yu's freeware platformer-rougelike was initially released in 2008, and can be found here. This game features Indiana Jones style protagonist exploring for hidden treasure in a procedurally generated cave. If you haven't played it alread, I highly suggest that you do so.
Derek Yu has indicated that Spelunky XBLA should be released soon ( I don't think the official release date has been announced ). The game will included updated graphics, a new soundtrack, and new game modes. It will be a limited time exclusive to XBLA, so it will be coming to the PC eventually. I thought you guys might be interested in this. The trailer looked great, so I'll definitely be waiting for its release.
