Title: What do you want to see in the XBLA Spleunky?
Post by: Kegan on January 19, 2010, 06:00:53 PM
First of all I'd like to say hello to everyone here at Mossmouth, I just made my account here as I freaking love Spelunky.

Now, what do you guys hope to see in the XBLA version of Spelunky? Here are a few of my own personal hopes:

1) An optional endless mode, (maybe add an online rankings board thing?)
2) Create-A-Spelunker, essentially it'd just be simple things like choosing the color of your Spelunker's outfit and such, maybe add a few heads and whip skins, it's out there I know, but I think it'd be kinda cool watching a character I created get killed within the first twenty seconds of the game.
3) Maybe keep the map editor and add the option to share them over XBL? Though that may be kind of a hassle.

and that's it for me, anything else Derek decides to surprise us with in the XBLA version will no doubt be awesome.

By the way, does anyone have any idea if this is coming the INDIE marketplace? Or to the Arcade marketplace? Because this has been bothering me for some time

(By the way, I apologize if I posted this in the wrong area of the forums.)

I would think it would be coming out in the indie marketplace, as it's not an arcade game, just an arade style.

That's what I figured, so what are you hoping to see in the XBL version?

A dsi port.

Guh, to heck with that, if it's going to get ported to the DS, I'm hoping someone makes it as a homebrew so I don't have to get a DSi >_>

and are you saying there isn't anything you're hoping to see the XBL version?

I don't have a 360, no does anyone in my town have one. I haven no way of playing it in anyway.

And I sure he has it covered anyway.

A dsi port.

I hope for this too. Or at least a Wiiware port.

I have no Xbox 360 or PS3.

Also Wii gets La-Mulana and Cave Story so... I think we should finish off the set.

Spelunky on wii?  Epic

Offline and Online Co-op. Online would work like this: The level ends when both people are out of the level. Including deaths. As long as one person finishes the level alive, the game continues. Offline could work the same way, just using split-screens.

There could even be games like capture the flag or deathmatch!

No no no no no.

This is spelunky. not halo. How would death match even work? whip each other?

multilayer sure, co op? sounds really good. and capture the flag could be interesting.

BUT A DEATH MATCH?

no. just... no.

Oh, come on!  You've been playing Spelunky for how long, and you don't think a multiplayer battle mode would work?  Spelunker can attack in a lot more ways than just with his whip!  Throw rocks!  Throw bombs!  Find pick up crates and use the random items inside to your advantage!  It'd probably work great.  Bomberman games work on the premise.

Yeah i know that, but... I have seen games like that.

Meh. It was more that the I read so many things like that for games that would not work.

I over reacted... sorry.

 ;) It's okay, mars.  I know there are a lot of bad ideas out there.


Title: Re: What do you want to see in the XBLA Spleunky?
Post by: marsgreekgod on January 20, 2010, 11:12:39 AM
I would like to note that I think everyone wants to see endless mode.


Title: Re: What do you want to see in the XBLA Spleunky?
Post by: gummybears123 on January 20, 2010, 02:59:38 PM
I don't really care, it would be nice though...


I also want a new area


Title: Re: What do you want to see in the XBLA Spleunky?
Post by: marsgreekgod on January 20, 2010, 03:01:16 PM
How would that work?


Title: Re: What do you want to see in the XBLA Spleunky?
Post by: gummybears123 on January 20, 2010, 03:05:17 PM
20 levels?


Title: Re: What do you want to see in the XBLA Spleunky?
Post by: marsgreekgod on January 20, 2010, 03:06:50 PM
Hmm.. as an extra mode mabey.


Title: Re: What do you want to see in the XBLA Spleunky?
Post by: gummybears123 on January 20, 2010, 03:07:31 PM
How about you can edit SPelunky inside the game?  THAT WOULD BE......................................................... epic?


Title: Re: What do you want to see in the XBLA Spleunky?
Post by: marsgreekgod on January 20, 2010, 03:09:43 PM
What... do you mean?


Title: Re: What do you want to see in the XBLA Spleunky?
Post by: gummybears123 on January 20, 2010, 03:15:07 PM
You can edit Spelunky INSIDE the game itself.... like you can create a new area inside the game


Title: Re: What do you want to see in the XBLA Spleunky?
Post by: marsgreekgod on January 20, 2010, 03:19:04 PM
That would be... strange.

Doable, yes, but strange and most likely buggy.

Unless you mean like a level editor+

I think he means like the source code except with a user interface that wouldn't take someone that knew what they were doing to handle it.
Also, Some neat little bonus modes would be nice
Race
Battle

In Race: You would auto revive at the beginning of the level you are on, and you have to make the most (Money,Kills,saves,time etc...)

In Battle: Well you would fight a friend with customizible bombs rope hp items.

I guess you would edit the speed, bombs, ropes,
accuracy/level of difficulty, jump height, damage,
and I guess weapons.

So I came up with an OK idea!

Anyway, its prob not going to work.... its probably pratically impossible

I am not sure it's ok, but yeah. it would be intersting.

but is it possible?

In theory, yes. but that is but a theory. It could not be possible. and even if it is, it could not be fun


Title: Re: What do you want to see in the XBLA Spleunky?
Post by: gummybears123 on January 21, 2010, 06:01:30 PM
IT COULD NOT BE FUN?  It would definitely be fun!
