And thanks to Mossmouth, there's more where that came from.
There isn't now a release date set for Spelunky 2, and it's also not clear if it will remain exclusive to PS4, or if it will be available for the PC and Xbox One in time.
You can get a taste of the action in Ultrawings VR in the official Paris Games Week trailer embedded below.
It's an absolutely charming trailer, which shows the original Spelunky's hero having grown older, with a partner and child, and an outrageously gormless looking dog. "For now, I'll leave it to your imagination what it all means, but I will say that there are similarities between being a parent and working on a sequel". Beneath all of that lies an infernally challenging, ever-changing game that screws you over more than it rewards you. but still has you begging for more every damn time. But Spelunky 2 is real, and it's coming eventually. So you're probably wondering, why would it need a sequel?
