Spelunky and Downwell creators team up for 50-game collection UFO 50

Derek Yu, the creator of the popular video game Spelunky, has not been seen very many times or he made any big splash since his gaming title literally transformed the "randomly generated" gaming genre in 2008 (and again with an "HD" version in 2012). The trailer below shows off a little over half of what's in there, so give it a look to get ready for the lost 8-bit catalog of a publisher that never existed. However, now he is back with UFO 50.

If you grew up in the era of those cute and fun 8-bit games like Zelda, Contra, Super Mario, and the ancient Final Fantasy, nostalgic feelings probably come up whenever you see games in that format. According to these reports, Derek Yu, Eirik Suhrke, and Joe Perry are just some of those to have worked on the new games collection. It will launch for PC first in 2018, followed by other platforms. Each game will be "slightly smaller" than an actual 8-bit game from that time period, but Yu and co stress that they're "full games" rather than minigames. Putting that into context, it also says that "Completing the entire collection could easily take over a hundred hours". These games were all created in the 1980s by this fictional, obscure, and "ahead of its time" company. As for the games, "They're all connected by a unique 32-color palette and other restrictions we decided on to make them feel more authentic", which is essentially the devs playing a role on top of creating games. They will all have single player mode but just about 30% of the games will have multiplayer mode, either competitive or collaborative.

A price has yet to be announced, but its creators want it to be "an easy purchase".
