Look at that Spelunky 2 screenshot. It’s beautifully terrifying. Veterans of Spelunky will instantly recognize the threat that lava with liquid physics will pose to challengers. Creator Derek Yu says he’s not quite ready to talk about a release date, but he released a few more screenshots to intimidate you.
Viewers of last night’s 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards were treated to proof positive that at least one of the winners of the Best Writing in a Variety Series award plays Spelunky. During the awad presentation, a video montage of the Colbert Report team at one point featured writer Rob Dubbin playing the sadistically tough platformer. Just after the broadcast, Mossmouth’s Derek Yu congratulated Dubbin on Twitter.
@supererogatory @robdubbin And a massive congratulations to you, Rob!

Rob Dubbin, as well as being an Emmy Award winner, writes about gaming for Kill Screen.
