Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Spelunky - A Roguelike Platformer! (New Version Out!)
Yeah, you read that right. It's also freeware. Spelunky is a platform game, but the levels are randomly generated. It's also got a nice old-school La-Mulana vibe. It's also lots of fun!
What really impresses me about this game is that it's got the feel of a rogue-like while playing like a platform game. Every time you die (and you will die a lot), you know the death was your fault. Most every run-through, you learn some new mechanic that will help you the next time. Bit by bit, you get further and further. It also has the random-ness of the encounters of roguelikes - you throw a pot at a spider, it triggers an arrow trap, the arrow shoots the girl you are trying to save....etc.
There's lots of wacky items to find, treasure to search for, and giant boulders to run from. Go at it! (** Now updated to version 0.99, with extra shortcut and other new material!)
