Spelunky Creator's New Project Is A Collection Of 50 Faux Retro Games

The creators have a fantastic track record, and is comprised of Derek Yu (Spelunky), Erik Suhrke (music for Spelunky, Downwell, and created Skropulac), John Perry (the upcoming card game Time Barons), Paul Hubins (pixel artist on games like Capcom's excellent Dark Void Zero), and Ojiri Fumoto who's best known as Moppin (Downwell).

Spelunky creator Derek Yu hinted at something new a couple of weeks ago when he tweeted a screenshot of what appeared to be a new game, accompanied by the hashtag #UFO50. The world went a-flurry with excitement-at last, we were getting a new game from Yu.

While they mention that the titles will be slightly smaller than real 8-bit games, they definitely aren't microgames or minigames as completing the collection could take hundreds of hours, according to their site. These games were all created in the 1980s by this fictional, obscure, and "ahead of its time" company.

Q. Are the games connected in any way? While a majority of them are single-player, "roughly a third" have either co-op or competitive multiplayer modes too. The games compilation is expected to drop in early 2018. It is now in development for the PC, but could come to other platforms. Pricing hasn't been set, but the developers say they "want it to be an easy purchase".
