The team at Drinkbox Studios put together a fantastic “Metroid-vania” title with Guacamelee and we absolutely loved it. Well, there are a few nagging issues that the team wanted to iron out and their recent patch unfortunately came with a few hiccups of its own. The DLC that was scheduled (the Costume Pack) has been delayed to work on this patch. On their official blog they’ve given us a bit of info on what to look for and how to avoid issues with the bug. If you missed the review (and just really don’t want to click this link for some reason) here is a snippet on Guacamelee!
Guacamelee! wins on so many fronts that any glitch in the system is trivial compared to the overall package. Drinkbox has crafted a brilliantly unique world on top of a platformer that combines the best of the classics, along with a few of its own ideas — things like two player local co-op is a feature I don’t think I’ve ever seen in a Metroidvania game, and I challenge more developers to try to include it. Guacamelee! is so sure of itself, and has got so much style to spare, that you can’t help but fall in love while trying to master its every complexity. If you’re a fan of video games, you’d be doing yourself a disservice not picking this up immediately.
We’ve also got a follow-up Q&A that we did with the developers that you might check out while you are at it. I applaud the team for putting this patch ahead of releasing new content. It’s appreciated more than they know.
