When Fez released on PC in May of 2013 I adored it. I was fresh out of grad school, looking for a job, and had time on my hands. I quickly played through the game and loved it so much that I completed every optional puzzle, finding every collectible, unlocking every secret until I had every achievement, and saw every room.
Spelunky is my favorite video game and I could write some deep, critical analysis of it but part of my love of the game is connected to how it helped me in a specific time in my life. Today is the day Spelunky 2 releases on PS4, a game I didn’t expect to exist and I hope will be delightful as the original game.
