I am reading this at the moment, not far into it, so far so good.
It’s written by one Spelunky player/streamer on Youtube that @onLooSe pointed in my direction, by the channel name Israel Blargh. He’s been working on this novel for several years, and he finished all of the artwork/map/etc recently. His Indiegogo funding campaign is running for another week or so.
He’s a really funny guy, and offers plenty of entertainment on his channel, even if he’s not the most talented Spelunky player to watch. He’s very eloquent, loquaciously so, and just really entertaining.
Anyway, I just wanted throw this out there, just in case anyone else might be interested too.
Here’s his YouTube channel:
This is the reason he had to self-publish:
And here’s his own worldbuilding in a short video:
Anyway, I am super impressed by him, and if you ever watch his gaming videos, know that his jokes are just that, jokes… don’t take them too seriously…
