I’ve been wrestling (DO YOU SEE WHAT I DID THERE) with review code for Guacamelee! Gold Edition over the past few days, and I’ve been having a rather jolly time with its Mexican-themed Metroidvania antics.
I’d obviously suggest waiting for our review – which’ll probably be turning up tomorrow – but I thought I’d let you know that the game is out today on Steam, complete with a couple of little bonuses. And you have no idea how hard it is to write this news item without using up my entire arsenal of Guacamelee! puns before I write the review.
Anyway! For one thing, if you buy it before 15 August, you get 10% off the price (which should be somewhere in the region of $15 USD/£12 GBP, otherwise). For another, you’ll supposedly get a free Steam code for Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack. I say “supposedly”, because there’s no mention made of this on the Steam page. Perhaps it’ll be updated when the game unlocks in Europe in a couple of hours.
Oh yes! And there’s a cheerful launch trailer, too. You can have a look at that below.Related to this article

When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
