Whip. Hat. GIANT ROLLING BOULDER. Traps.

There's nothing more to say.

But it's just so much easier to say Indy than Spelunker.

But spelunker sounds more phosisticated... er, sophisticated than Indy.

One more thing to say: ophidiophobia.

Also, I call him Spelunky. I just assumed the game was named after him. Has Derek ever made any comments regarding his official name?

Also also, what's with the red nose? Is he raiding tombs in order to raise money for Comic Relief?

It's a bomb that's about to explode.

That's due to his crippling alcoholism, obviously.  That's on top of him being a grave robber, murderer, thief, woman abuser, defiler of ancient altars, and willing to destroy ancient legendary holy sites just to line his pockets.  I bet all the money just goes to booze in the end.

Ha!! That would be a laugh!!

Anyway, I personally call him "Spelunker." I've just recently saw the original "Indiana Jones" Trilogy (Yeah, It took me long enough...) and I have had several occasions wherein I find myself calling him "Indy."

The Spelunker doesn't fear snakes.  He hates them.

Maybe he's a misophidiogonist?

He hates them because he fears them.

Jock: "Come on, show a little backbone, will ya?"

if you don't like the spelunker being called 'indy', call him 'indie', like 'independant game designer Derek Yu' or something

His name represents his indie-game heritage!

Post by: AresRomanGod on October 02, 2009, 06:47:37 PM
That was just bad. I appreciate the effort, though!

But yeah, indy, indie, spelunker, dude with red tomato nose...

The possibilities are endless. Just call him SOMETHING.

"The Spelunker" is the best name for him.  Everyone else's name is a title.

The Damsel.  The Tunnel Man.  The Shopkeeper.

This is how I read this:

How abouts Sir Spelunker? Or Lord Spelunker? Or Spelunker Fodder Esq.?

I kind of like Lord Whipslash. I imagine him having a huge manor which he fills wall to wall with dirt so that he can practice his spelunking. Every morning before dawn, his servants bury a bottle of booze somewhere on the premises. Lord Whipslash's day hasn't begun until he's tracked that bottle down and fully explored its contents. On Sundays, Sir Tunnel Man comes round to discuss kill counts over tea.

Just sounds like a Lara Croft spinoff.

Hmm... I wonder if Spelunker/Spelunky/Indy/Dave knows Lara Croft... Maybe she's the "her" in "and I remembered her for one last time."  ;)

Thanks.  I don't know how I made that typo.

'Cept for the damsel, who wears fine silk. It feels nice.

They don't look alike, but the game-play is like Indiana Jones.
