'Spelunky' Coming to Xbox Live Arcade in 2010

Spelunky is a cave exploration / treasure-hunting game inspired by classic platform games and roguelikes, where the goal is to grab as much treasure from the cave as possible.

Every time you play, the layout will be different. Use your wits, reflexes and items to survive and go ever deeper!

Perhaps at the end, you may find what you're looking for...

Spelunky is making its way to Xbox Live Arcade in 2010! Yep, and it's going to be much more than a straight port of the PC game - Mossmouth is planning on stuffing it with new graphics, audio, and other features for XBLA users. With all the other great independent games on XBLA or coming to it, Mossmouth founder Derek Yu is hopeful that Spelunky will feel right at home there saying, " I think it's a cool platform and I'm excited about what I'll be able to do to make the game special."

Regarding the inevitable question of whether the XBLA flavor of Spelunky will also be available on PC or any other systems Yu stated, "I don't have any plans for it right now. The original Spelunky doesn't need replacing, in my opinion, and I'll continue to support it as a free title. Not only that, but I'm planning on opening up the source code before the end of the year so that people can modify the game to their heart's content. "

For now, head over to the Spelunky forums to discuss the game and share levels!
