Not at all. I love me a good slice of brutal platforming.

Trailer titles have been getting pretty hyperbolic as of late.

For some reason I thought that this was a WiiU exclusive but it looks like its coming for out on everything, so I'm sold. Though, I will forever associate this with Johnathan Blow's twitter.

Curly Brace from Cave Story is a playable character?

This looks pretty awesome. I see a Unprofessional Fridays (or Wednesdays) 1001 Spikes segment in the future.

Unfortunately games with this sort of art style tend to blur together after awhile.

I'm starting to get bored with the 8-bit retro style games as of late. I know there is a unique charm to them, but that charm is starting to overstay its welcome.

For this unaware this is a sequel to Aban Hawkins & the 1000 SPIKES on XBOX 360 INDIE games. It is brutally tough. I remember me and friends playing it while drunk and needing like 200 lives to get through the first 3 levels.

This would make a great Breaking Brad (in the style of Volgarr) but with Brad and three other dudes.

I didn't know Jonathan Blow was starring in games now!

I WILL NOT play this game because the trailer led me on.

Looks kinda fun. Can be sure to see this on an UPF at least once.

Dig the aesthetic. Seems a lot more legit than the usual half ass "retro" visuals of many other titles.

I actually managed to finish that original game all the way through, and even just doing that felt like an amazing accomplishment.

That title animation was too fucking clever.

This looks like one of the potential best games of 2014, which is saying a lot considering the dozens of ridiculously awesome games coming out, I just hope it doesn't bomb due to gamers not paying attention.
