Spelunky, Portal 2 characters on the way to Runner 2

Thursday, 11th July 2013 00:54 GMT By Brenna Hillier

The remaining two guest characters coming in Bit.Trip Presents Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien’s Good Friends DLC pack are from Portal 2 and Spelunky. The final addition is, uh … CommanderVideo.

Yes: the last additional character is, indeed, the protagonist of the game itself – but with quite a twist. Having suffered something of an accident, as detailed in the video below, our hero has been transformed into Invisible CommanderVideo, which is going to make the running much, much harder.

Also joining the pack are Atlas, the shorter, blue co-op robot from from Portal 2, and Spelunky Guy, the guy from Spelunky. These three join two previously announced pairs of guests.

The Good Friends DLC pack hits Steam on Thursday (US time, presumably) and is expected on PlayStation 3, Wii U and Xbox 360 at a later date – but Atlas won’t be part of the console version, as he’s exclusive to Steam. Eurogamer reports the pack will cost $3 on PC. Runner 2 is also headed to Vita.

    And the indie love-in continues. It’s also pretty great that they got the voice actor of Paarthurnax/Mario to narrate these. He amuses me.

    There’s a lot of what I love about indie games to be found, here. It reminds me more of the ’70s and ’80s, when things weren’t so much about IPs, and instead more about good games.

    Goddamit, I saw Spelunky and thought it became available on Steam / GOG. Still, it’s really awesome to see small game characters appearing in other ones.

    Really loved the Meat Boy age where he was in every single indie game (Like Dust and Spelunky).
