Wearing Jurrasic Park colors because.... because why not?
Wearing Jurrasic Park colors because.... because why not?

I looked into how difficult it'd be to make a Spelunky skin and turns out, not too hard.

Here's a link to a forum that seems to have all the skins/mods available collected into one location. There should also be a tool there that lets you unpack and repack the textures Spelunky uses for yourself.

Anyway, here's what it looks like in action

I made the sprite by drawing the thing at about 500% what the game uses and then resizing it to match the existing sprite size. Reason being that drawing at that low a resolution is really hard because it isn't straight pixel art.

I'd say all in all, from start to current state it was prolly about 5 hours spread across a week and half. About half of that was drawing the art and I'd say about 2 hours of resizing and getting the spritesheet placement right with another half hour of testing in between.

Cool thing about this custom skin stuff is that everything works fine with the game and the daily challenge so pretty much, I just play the game with it now. Also, it's super simple to install and uninstall the mods since the entire process consists of just changing out two files in the texture directory of Spelunky. Anyway, here's a link to it if anyone else wants to check it out. There's a readme in the .zip that'll explain how to install and uninstall it.

He lost the hat?! As much as that offends me, personally. I think I'm willing to let that go because this is pretty damn awesome.

Now we'll see if Patrick starts using this! I'm trying to think if I'd want to use a Spelunky avatar based on myself. Might be a little odd seeing myself to my own death so many times in a row.

Holy shit, Patrick looks adorably menacing as a Spelunker. I would love to see versions of Brad, Vinny, Jeff, and so on if you ever get the opportunity.

Now you only have to make a Jeff, Vinny and Brad skin and then change the title screen to Bombing for Treasure and put it up on Steam Greenlight

Now you need to make @alex or other members of Giant Bomb into damsels for him to save.

Edit: Or kill.

Remember that time I said that you were radical? Well from now on, whenever something is radical, I'm going to call it Fobwashed instead.

"Wow, this Alice in chains album is totally Fobwashed!"

"This cheeseburger from 5 guys is pretty Fobwashed, dude."

"Did you see that new Spelunky art that Fobwashed made? It's super fobwashed. Fobwashed is the most fobwashiest mother fobwasher I know."
