Indie Hit Spelunky HD Finally Coming to PC

When Derek Yu's Spelunky HD released on the Xbox Live Arcade last summer, it made quite a splash, garnering high marks from critics.

PC gamers eagerly awaited a port. After all, the original Spelunky was released on PC back in 2009 as a freeware game. Unfortunately, it never came.

Now, a long, long year later, Derek Yu has announced that Spelunky HD will finally be "coming home" to PC via Steam, GOG, and the Humble Store. Though there's no official release date as of yet, Yu is aiming for a ballpark of a summer 2013 release.

    "I'm entitled to an awesome, highly replayable, challenging dungeon crawler indie game for free because it's not cutting edge 3D graphics!!!"

    That's how you sound right now.
