Anthony Burch – Welcome to the Deathpit
On the one hand: god dammit. On the other hand: pretty cool way to die. On a third hand: god DAMMIT.
Tom’s note: Anthony’s death is so crazy and sudden that I had to rewind a few times before I really saw what happened. It’s a spoiler for the vid, but if you’re curious I took a shot of the crucial moment that explains it.
Tom Francis – Tight spot
Well, that got interesting.
Graham Smith – Crushed
Oh the ghost is coming, I wonder what direction from. Hey, the room is rumbling. I don’t remember ghosts making things rumble? Wait, what did I just pick up again? Oh right yeah I remember from the literally thousands of other times I’ve survived this scenario.
What has gone wrong in me?
My first Spelunky Daily Challenge video for Spelunky Explorers’ Club, and I thought I was doing pretty well, unless the most embarrassing death I’ve ever experienced happened.
Going to try turning the music down a little tomorrow, since you can barely hear anything I’m saying.
Alex Wiltshire – Hail of arrow
I’ve brought in my 8-year-old kid to help out. He didn’t help out. But at least it’s funny.
Alec Meer – Humiliation In Blue
I am RUBBISH. Like, really, unbelievably, stupidly rubbish. And so is my microphone, it transpires, so there’s just some barely-audible muttering. Probably for the best, mind.
In which, extremely hungover, I discover new levels of incompetence in the Spelunky daily 13/08/2013. Things I learned – 1. So THAT’s how ropes, capes and cavemen work. 2. There is no corpse that can’t be weaponised.
Today on the Daily Challenge, we have more views on the scoring system courtesy of you guys (thanks!) and a sequence of levels where the gods of procedural generation have laid off on the spider jerks for once. It’s not a happy ending, though, which is as we’ve come to expect.
Phil Savage – I blame the boomerang
In which I get a boomerang, and my confidence overtakes my ability.
Ran out of rope, kept falling down to the end of the level. Ah well.
Special props to Antichamber creator Alexander Bruce for that insane score. Even by Spelunky’s money-only scoring system, he was 20th in the world for this daily.
