Indiegames.com is a big fan of Spelunky, apparently. They made an article (with permission from Derek) a while ago about games like Spelunky that don't need an Xbox 360.

http://indiegames.com/2012/07/top_10_spelunky-like_games_for.html#more

Yes, I realize this isn't technically a Spelunky award, persay, but it's definitely recognition by a major website.

Also, note the last result on the first list, halibabica.    Cheesy

I know, some of the choices are pretty stupid. Especially on the last five. Tongue It's an indie, and a platformer, I guess.

If you could convince Derek to let you release TLS on steam (and you cut him a profit) you would both be rich.

Or maybe you could get him to put it in the official code - maybe as DLC, you know - "Mantrap Mode" or something like that.

Anyway, I haven't heard anyone else mention Knytt Underground, been playing that a lot as my temper allows. Today I did a quest which I got a hard disk as the reward, the questgiver described it as having a man and a snake engraved on one side. He goes on to describe how using it let him control a little man who was killing snakes, my first thought was Spelunky and it was confirmed when I saw the icon. It's teeny but you can just make out Spelunky, the title and a snake. I believe Nifflas put some other indie references in there too, but this is the first I found.

Not sure if this counts, but #3 on the list of 591 games of the TIGdb (The Indie Game Database, a relatively well-known site) is Spelunky. http://db.tigsource.com/top?genre=&platform=&max-price=0&release=&min-rating=&developer=&publisher=&engine=&code=&content=&language=&tag=

Of course, it's based upon user review scores, so Derek's admin status probably only has a passing effect. Tongue
Looking through the top couple of pages, is it worrying that I've played them all? ;-;

polygon.com, a gaming website based off theverge.com/gaming, has plenty of praise for Spelunky.
