Title: What else console would you like to see the Spelunky remake be ported to?
Post by: KarjamP on September 18, 2010, 11:19:43 AM
My revived thread about porting this game to other consoles.

3ds or just ds.

Or dsiware


you can see where I am going with this.

You are probably being sarcastic, but if you aren't, it's a great thing to hear.

In the console's earlier days, it was well known that coding games, stabilising them, etc. for the PS3 was much harder than, say, the XBOX 360.

And now, its online shop is nowhere near XBOX LIVE arcade in terms of the amount of games, their quality and even their cross-platform existence, which indicates it is hard to port a game from one console to the other... especially when just one man is working on it.


Anyway, I'd much, much hope to see Spelunky on the Playstation, it will spread to more consumers that way. And that would most definitely include me!

Spelunky XBLA for windows would be awesome.  Well, I'm only saying that because I don't have an Xbox 360.

But anyway, Spelunky XBLA, well, is going to be an XBLA game, so it's not likely it will be on the webs for free anytime soon.

DSi/3DS (as a downloadable title). Spelunky is one of the ultimate pick-up-and-play games, perfect for bitesize gaming sessions and so it would be great on the DSi/3DS (assuming you could opt to suspend play at the end of each level). I'd happily just have the PC version on the DSi, but the 3DS has enough grunt that it could probably approximate the Xbox graphics (seeing as the 3DS favours high-quality pixels over large polygon amounts). Dunno' what you'd use the 3D abilities for, mind.
As for "proper" consoles, I'm not arsed at all as I've got an Xbox so I'll just get it on there.

This game would suit the PS2, but not the Wii because it has a stupid controller.

A stupid controller that matches up to the original Nes controller almost perfectly and thus suits Spelunky very well

letsee

jump: 2
action: 1
purchase: -
bomb: B
rope: A
pause: +

running would either be super mario style hold action thing or double tap the dpad

Honestly, I am shocked no one requested the PC as a console! If it's PC, everyone who has the original Spelunky can download the New Spelunky! And btw, Spelunky XBLA isn't the official name for it, is it? Because if it is, I guess it could only be for the Xbox 360! But if the name changes to Spelunky + (Like N+) or Super Spelunky (Like Super Street Fighter 4), then it could be ported to other consoles as well. But I guess the first console should be the Xbox, I could see why, Derek has been working on the Xbox version for about a year or 2 now, but it probably wouldn't take this long to transfer it to the Playstation Store or the Microsoft Website or just Spelunky World in general, because what Derek is doing now is Creating the game, not working out the controls (Unless he's doing both)! Also, I don't have an Xbox or an Xbox 360! So if it doesn't come out on another console (Like I thought Alan Wake would), I won't be able to play it! Well, I guess I could watch some LP's of the game in the first place (Like I said before, like Alan Wake), but wouldn't that be sort of getting a head start? I wouldn't of known how to get to Area 2 on the original Spelunky if it wasn't for Arm4g3dd0nX's LP of it. Also, what if it's a boring LP (For the last time, like Alan Wake) and I don't want to look forward to it (This is more like BioShock than Alan Wake, though)? I guess I will, but what if it's *too* much like the original Spelunky, apart from better graphics and bug fixes? Well, I think I've said enough here (Although I don't remember half because I left in the middle of writing this for about 2 or 3 hours), so I am still looking forward to Spelunky XBLA, but I just want to hear the answers to the questions that I've spoken of, so please reply, and I also want to hear if there IS a chance that Spelunky XBLA will ever get to the Playstation store and etc, so help me out, some one!

PS. I forgot to mention it, but every one who is getting offended hear about the cavemen having big lips or John (I'll just call the spelunker that) has a big nose or something, well, I'm offended by you being offended! I enjoyed the first Spelunky quite well, and I am not much of a pixel fan... okay, so maybe I have played Earthbound and Mario Brothers and stuff.... okay, so I AM a pixel fan, so what? Spelunky doesn't require you to be a pixelated game fan of some sort, all it requires you to do is... okay, I'm getting off topic here. Back to the real world, Spelunky had some stuff that made me scream, like the insane difficulty (I wanna be the guy?!?) but it doesn't have ANYTHING I have found offending! So why would you guys pick on Derek about it? That's like buying an M or AO rated game for your children (A perfect example is Conker's Bad Fur Day) and soon realizing that it has sexual stuff or major profanity or what the heck moments to the extreme (I think of Silent Hill here)! Well, I do admit that the Man Eater could of been a bit more offending (By that I mean looking like it will kill you in one freaking touch!), It looks like a cough drop with a steam and teeth! But, as long as it still leads you with a terrible death by trying to *Pet* it, I guess it's okay.  I mean, If it looks like it's dangerous, then why would newbies try touching it (Or better yet, jumping on it, sense almost every thing hurts you when you touch it), they would know it would hurt them! So, I guess good work. Also, the water looks outstanding! I hope you can drown now, just to make things more realistic, and better yet, have a scuba suit or something in crate or a store to buy! But, I think I'm getting pretty long here, so whoever has read it to here, thank you very much! Peace out, Spelunky Fans (Or Spelunky Haters who are just reading this to mock me for liking this game)!

That's...kind of all over the place, man.

I suspect the difficulty with releasing Spelunky on other consoles would be mechanical rather than legal; I'm hardly au fait with the baffling mysteries of software porting, mind. But any console with online support (so, all of them) would make a decent home for the title. We no longer live in a world where you claim allegiance to one console; I don't think I know any PS3 owners who don't also have a 360.

This is obviously all conjecture but my suspicion is that future ports will depend heavily on how well the XBLA version does, but considering the attention it's getting in the gaming press I think that can be safely assumed to be "extremely."

Welcome to the forums Long-winded washing machine

I do believe Steam has been mentioned, which is an online gaming platform made by the people who did left 4 dead, half life 2, and team fortress 2. If there were a PC version of Spelunky HD (might as well call it that now) it would most likely be on there

People were offended by the cave men's lips because it looks like a racial stereotype to some (to be more clear some people thought the cavemen looked like africans with stereotypical big ass lips) and the nose thing was just people's separate opinions on what looked graphically the best.

Quite honestly im surprised that Kali hasnt raised some eyebrows, though i suppose Spelunky hasnt been introduced to anyone who would care about the death goddess statues covered in blood, but I have a feeling that some good old members of the Christian mothers society will be pulling controllers away from their kids in order to keep their eyes from seeing the horrors that is a cartoony videogame

Back to playing super noah's ark 3d for you, jimmy!

Heck I know two people that  have 2 of the following: 360, wii, ps3, ds, psp

Post by: Toom on November 21, 2010, 09:03:29 PM
The thing is that the 360 got the drop on the PS3 by almost a solid year, and had (in my opinion) a pretty feeble launch line-up, so by the time anyone could be arsed buying one they probably had a 360 already. It may seem a little excessive but the £500 or so you'd need to get both consoles and a few good games isn't really that much money when you've got a job that lets you have a chair.


Title: Re: What console would you like to see Spelunky XBLA be ported to?
Post by: Arucard on November 22, 2010, 09:13:20 AM
Most consoles have had a pretty feeble launch line-up, going back as far as I can remember. Usually one or two games everybody gets, peppered with a lot of graphic-show-offs, or new feature expoits. Also New Spelunky for PC has been mentioned quite a bit, it's just that the original is still around and planned for continued support after the live release. Which means if the new one were to come to PC, there would be a free and a pay version for PC, which most people would go for the free.

Mars, I just got my 360 back, so now you know someone with a PS3, 360, Wii, PS2, GBA, DS, and PSP (and PC and Dreamcast, 64, PSX, etc.). Enough abbreviations for ya? Also, Toom, it may not be quite as apparent anymore, or maybe just not so heated since most games are released for each console, but there are still fiercely heated debates between Microsoft and Sony fans. It will never end, just like PC vs. Mac or IE vs. Firefox. If someone can fight over it, they will.

Would either need classic controller, or use the nunchuck.


Title: Re: What console would you like to see Spelunky XBLA be ported to?
Post by: Bae on November 26, 2010, 08:01:54 PM
While it would work better with Nunchuck or classic the basic wiipad just barely fits the controls

Pteri have you never seen the wiimote flipped sideways? Its used for a lot of classic styled games like the nes wii virtual console titles and even metroid other M where it actually works quite good (aside from the occasional thumb hurt from the hard dpad)

For the sake of having something to do I made some concept layouts, for the wii and for the other two systems

I probably should make a ds/psp one too...

You obviously never played on a Nintendo Wii before, haven't you? Not only does a wii have that amount of buttons (and a Home and Power button, but both are reserved for accessing the Home Menu and to switch off the machine, respectively), but the wii "remote", as ithe controller's called, actually supports extensions that can have more buttons (the most often used (in my opinion) is the Nunchuk (which adds both a analog stick AND two buttons)).

Personally, I would also chose the Android (because of my new-found fascination with that platform (and the fact that I'm getting the cheapest Android phone in South Africa, the Vodafone 845)), but I won't vote, because did it already (for the 3DS).

but you said you lived in a small town, i wouldnt doubt that the majority of the people you know might not even have a computer, which in this day and age (or is the phrase day in age...) is like not having a single tv

The number of buttons on a controller is, of course, exactly the kind of thing people would go to the trouble of lying about.

I mean, I don't own a Wii either, but have you seriously gone almost five years without seeing one? Do they not have Google Image Search where you're from?

Look, Wonkyth, we all love Spelunky, but nobody is going to go out and buy a £300 console for the sake of a £10 XBLA game. Nobody is saying Spelunky is a killer app, do you see? Nobody is suggesting buying a console for the game. But the enhanced (important distinction, that) version is coming to XBLA, so people who already own XBoxen can play the enhanced port, and we are engaging in some harmless speculation about other consoles we'd like to see the enhanced port, uh, ported to.

How is this difficult.

I get what you mean, Toom, and was awaare of your point since before you stated it.  :P
What I'm saying is that if a single port was made with the aim of it reaching the most people, then the PC is the obvious choice, even ignoring the fact that it offers the greatest freedom of control.

Actually, if I think about it, I see Spelunky XBLA having more of a relation to the Nintendo Wii. Like someone posted before, it does fit perfectly wii remote, without the need for a nun-chuck (don't know if it's spelled right) or a classic or game box controller. Since the Xbox and PS3 both have analog sticks, it would be a little weird to suddenly switch from arrow keys to analog (I haven't played a Playstation for a while, and have been playing games on the wii, so it might not be accurate)! So it's pretty strange on why Derek would do that, if you think a moment.  :-\

well no, it makes sense to pick the 360 if you can only choose one console to make a game on, its popular, the coding is probably better known by now, and... its popular! it came out when the gamecube was still around, most people who will ever buy a 360 have one by now and that means a larger market to sell your product to

I've also heard that WiiWare's rules are carefully engineered to screw over developers: Nintendo doesn't give devs their cut of the profits unless sales hit a certain target (which is, of course, set by Nintendo). I love the Wii, but if I were an indie developer I certainly wouldn't bother developing a game for a "service" whose operators might just decide to keep my money.

Also worth mentioning is that whilst both the Wii and the 360 support Flash, which is obviously a pretty popular dev platform for indies, full, commercial Wii devkits are like £1500 or something; I understand that the hoops to be jumped through to actually get one are considerable, but a grand and a half is three-guys-in-a-garage money.

Also worth mentioning is that whilst both the Wii and the 360 support Flash, which is obviously a pretty popular dev platform for indies, full, commercial Wii devkits are like £1500 or something; I understand that the hoops to be jumped through to actually get one are considerable, but a grand and a half is three-guys-in-a-garage money.
That is a fair point.

If spelunky on the 360 makes a lot of money a wii or ds port wouldn't be a bad idea

To be fair, nintindo does let you get all the money back from before the target.

Sorry, I don't understand. Could you expand on this? I'd hate to accuse Nintendo of undying evil if I'm mistaken about their corporate policies.

Well basicly you have to sell X games.

One you sell X games , you get y% of all the money made from each sale, including games that you sold BEFORE and AFTER you reach X games.

more clear?

Ah, I see what you're saying now. Yeah, that's how I thought it worked. And I think I'm still comfortable saying that WiiWare was designed to fuck indie developers buttwise by holding the profits hostage unless the game performs according to Nintendo's expectations. I understand that running WiiWare has to involve some overhead expenditures, but Nintendo really ought to be fronting that cost themselves if they want to make their service attractive to developers.

First, I want to apologize for bumping this thread.

I voted PC. I know the XBLA is a great place for this kind of game but assuming Derek is developing this version with XNA, it should be pretty straightforward to make it works on PC too.

Plus, you can sell it on PC too, more money incoming :)

That's my two cents, I really want to see this on PC!

A stupid controller that matches up to the original Nes controller almost perfectly and thus suits Spelunky very well

letsee

jump: 2
action: 1
purchase: -
bomb: B
rope: A
pause: +

running would either be super mario style hold action thing or double tap the dpad

I think a gamecube/classic controler would suit it better though

Mars. Late. Besides, the GCN controller is seldom supported, and would be like the 360/PS3 layouts any way, plus wiimote support is required any way so you know it needs its own lay out regardless, or it would if it were released on wii.

Oh please please do make it available on PSN. It looks just like the game I've been waiting for and I bet it could do very well on there. I was considering getting the Xbox just to play this game (yes I know I can play the original on PC, but it would be so much more fun doing it on the sofa with a good controller and with family rather than on my laptop).. Will get this new and improved version for PC or PSN if it that day comes, but my vote in this goes definitely to PSN.

Please, please, pretty please with a cherry on top bring the XBLA-version of Spelunky back to the PC. I don't own a 360 and never will and I know a lot of people who feel the same. But we love Spelunky and indie games in general on the PC (like so many people nowadays fortunately). If you sell the XBLA-version on the PC (e.g. through Steam), you'll make so much money, more than you'll make on the 360.

And btw.: The sooner, the better ;). Use the hype about the XBLA-version.

How difficult would a PS4 port be? If we were to receive one, do you think PS3 owners would be charged or would it support cross play?

Not that difficult, to be honest, if it's based upon the PC version and not the Playstation one.

The reason why the PS4's not backwards compatible?

It uses an x86-64 CPU (the same as a 64-bit computer, which is common nowadays), while the Playstation 3 uses a CPU based upon the PowerPC instruction set (same as the Gamecube, the Wii and the Wii U).
