Spelunky developer Derek Yu is writing a book about making the smash hit.
What started out as just another free rogue-like platformer a few years ago, turned into of a phenomenon. That’s the story of Spelunky, and creator Derek Yu wants to tell it to you.
The designer has teamed up with Boss Fight Books to publish a book about the game’s creation.
“Spelunky is a game design manifesto in which Derek Yu uses his own game to discuss wide-ranging topics such as randomization, creative process, team dynamics, the philosophy of challenging games, and player feedback. Grab some ropes, a mattock, and your favourite pug—this book is going to dig deep,” reads the book description.
