Spelunky 2 Developers React to Multiple Speedruns


Spelunky 2 is a pretty tough game. But if you know it well, are just trying to get to the end, and are amazing, then it's actually pretty short. So ride along with Derek Yu (Lead Designer/Lead Artist), Micky Pascual (Lead Programmer), and Eirik Suhrke (Sound Designer/Composer) as they watch and react to speedrunner D_Tea's very fast Any% run, followed by an Eggplant% run (whatever that is, it sounds delicious).

    I've never played the game so I can't speak to how it works for normal people, but it seems so strange to me that the devs would include something like a teleporter that seems like it can be abused to the point of basically not playing the game. Obviously to get away with a run like that it still requires a lot of knowledge of how the game works, but still, I'm just confused by it a little. Is the teleporter in most people's hands a not hyper OP tool? Is it just this player?

    teleporter teleports you 4-8 blocks in the direction you hold. Most people just dont understand the teleporter so they dont bother using it

    It would be better if they made it so that you have to move 1 more block for the ice cave skip. That way there would actually be a risk for attempting it.

PS i would love to see a halo 2 dev react video and please upvote comment for better chance to have it seen by ign.

    I hate that they changed the bomb chucking phase of Olmec because people waited it. Now the game is way way harder because people weren’t seeing a part of their game. I haven’t played the game since they changed that. When they make changes like that I’m afraid they’ll change things like the ice cave skip or other things speedrun or people find fun because “it wasn’t intended”

    The Eggplant’s journey is pretty interesting, Christmas was sacrificed to bring it into existence It was carefully carried like a baby through a dangerous world. Got eaten and regurgitated by a beast. All so that it can be sacrificed for an eggplant boy. Who is then killed and an eggplant crown is obtained. All for an infinite supply of eggplants.

    In the eggplant run, after using the ankh, the player got hit at: 12:55 14:10 (flaming corpse, the player model burned) 15:25 16:53 While only saving one damsel at 12:59 and not having the kapala. Did the flaming corpse not deal 2 damage? Because if it did, the hit at 16:53 should have killed him. Is this why the footage was zoomed in?
