1001 Spikes will also be available on The PlayStation Network as Cross-Buy title for both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita versions at $14.99. Steam users who've purchased Cave Story or Night Sky will get a special $5 discount off the game.
In 1001 Spikes you'll:
Discover the lost treasures of Ukampa in South America as Aban Hawkins searches for his estranged father, world-famous archaeologist Jim Hawkins. Before the elder Hawkins mysteriously disappeared, he entrusted his daughter Tina with a map to the location of the ruins with a grave warning that death awaits around every corner.
The developers 8Bits Fanatics claim it's "tough-as-nails," and the trailer for the game's multiplayer (see attached video) sure makes this 8-bit inspired platformer look intriguing. We're looking forward to diving into the game's 100 plus stages with multiple endings.
