Multiplayer Fixes! New DrinkBox workshop skins!! Sale!!!

Hey there Steam,
We’d like to tell you about a long-brewing update we’ve just put up that provides a few minor fixes, plus a dab of bonus content. Feast your eyes on the sumptuous changelist below:

  • Enhancements to the costume creator: Instead of custom skins always changing appearance to Juan/Tostada while in Intenso mode, you can now specify whether they Intenso-fy as J/T or just as a gleaming version of the custom skin. You can also turn off the glow that appears around them while in the opposite dimension, which is handy if the skin has changed your character’s silhouette so that it wouldn't match the normal glow shape.
  • Players who had an issue where their computer would run the game super-too-fast should hopefully now find that to be resolved. Please email us at support AT drinkboxstudios DOT com if you still see anything similar cropping up post-patch.
  • Some changes to better support the new 3- and 4-player mode, as well as miscellaneous other bug fixes. For more detail, see the full changelist
  • And the fun part: play as your favourite NPC! We’ve added to the Workshop for both Guac STCE and Gold Edition custom skins to let you play as X’Tabay, Uay Chivo, Flameface or Jaguar Javier. Steam user Mujizik worked with us to create these lavishly animated reskins, and they’re free to download as of today.

Finally, we’re having a sale! Guacamelee (STCE, Gold and the Complete bundle) will be 80% off on Steam for the next week! Tell all your Guac-deprived friends.

“Still the reigning champ.”
9.1 / 10 – IGN

“This is, by far, the best version of Guacamelee! you’re likely to see...”
A – Gaming Age

“Guacamelee Super Turbo Champion Edition offers one of the best-designed and most original takes on the well-worn metroidvania phenomenon you'll ever find.”
4.5 / 5 – US Gamer

Super? Turbo?? *Championship????*

Guacamelee! STCE is an enhanced version of Guacamelee! Gold Edition that adds in two huge new levels, an explosive new ‘Intenso’ power mode, 4-player local co-op support and more. You’ll need to use every bit of your skill and power to defeat STCE’s new challenges (including a scheming new boss- El Trio de la Muerte), in addition to everything the original game's sprawling world has to throw at you.

About This Game

Carlos Calaca has kidnapped El Presidente's Daughter, and he plans to sacrifice her in order to merge the World of the Living with the World of the Dead.

Juan Aguacate, an agave farmer who stumbles upon a Legendary Luchador mask, must find the strength and courage to become the Hero he's always dreamed of being and put a stop to this.

Guacamelee! is a Metroidvania-style action-platformer set in a magical world inspired by traditional Mexican culture and folklore. The game features melee combat, parallel dimensions and same-screen co-op. The original Guacamelee! received wide critical acclaim and was a finalist for both IndieCade and the Independent Games Festival's Excellence in Visual Art award.

Key Features

  • Non-Stop Fighting Action. An extensive move list, advanced combo engine, and anti-gravity grabs
  • Multi-dimensional Platforming. Instantly swap between the Worlds of Living and Dead to traverse impossible terrain
  • Combat moves double as movement, uniting platforming and fighting in a way never seen before
  • Diverse, detailed world containing lively towns, dark forests, flowery canals and fiery volcanoes
  • Drop in/out 4-Player local co-operative play, featuring independent dimension swapping
  • Multiple boss characters (each with unique back stories), wide range of foes, and elite-class enemies
  • Spectacular player abilities: The Rooster Uppercut, Frog Slam, and “Intenso” turbo-combat mode
  • Create new custom costumes and share these with others via Steam Workshop
  • Steam leaderboards, achievements and trading cards, support for multiple save slots, persistent cross-save-game costume unlocks
  • Chickens. Lots and lots of chickens.

Please note that the ‘Super Turbo Championship Edition’ of Guacamelee! is an updated version of the previously-released Guacamelee! Gold Edition.

A metroidvania style game, but not too hard.
If you want a nice platformer with a feel of exploration, but without having to actually explore that much or go nuts over platforming, this is your game.
Pretty solid in all, good design and graphics, nice soundtrack, polished.
A very good purchase.

This game is THE Metroidvania game of the 2008+ years. As long as you have a controller to play with it is a good game to learn to speedrun, casual fun, co-op with the girlfriend or just a classic hardcore gaming session.

I have had hours of fun 100%ing this game over and over again. Lots of replay value, all around fun and the fighting as well as platforming are very very satisfying.

Highly reccomended for anyone for any reason. I was hesitant at first because it seemed cheesy but now I'm having trouble finding games that compare to this one.

Apparently there are multiple endings, i may google it, IN THE NEXT DECADE OR SO. Im way too ♥♥♥♥♥♥ now to bother

I wanted to recommend this, but i just want to tell the devs '♥♥♥♥ YOU'. The game is good, up until last bossfight. Last bossfight has an incredible difficulty spike in it compared to anything JUST BEFORE THAT, its boring, uninteractice (both phases) and the time to dodge is incredibly narrow, also your attacks have a massive recover time, while falling to the ground after an uppercut for example, and those narrow down the dodge windows to incredibly small.

The ending is a spit in the face, last boss fights are incredibly dull compared to the other ones which are pretty good, the area before the last boss is incredible long, took me atleast 70-80 minutes to get through (thats from boss fight to the last bossfight distance).

Yea, you could tell me that a good story is where the hero doesn't get live in the world he "fixed" and i would tell you to ♥♥♥♥ OFF. Seriously im getting ♥♥♥♥in seriously bored of endings where our hero isn't satisfied, in a book its okay, but in a video game, thats eye candy with vibrant colours humor fun and action it is absurdly anti-climactic and totally ruins immersion and fun. Im on the verge of wanting to refund this ♥♥♥♥.

I want to vomit now, yea i understand the 'happy ending' is basically an overused cliché ♥♥♥♥in hell mate, we worked hard on getting through the game, its not easy unless you are a fighting game expert. One of the WORST if not THE worst conclusion to a game.

Its incredibly short too, there are collectibles but if you aren't into those you aren't going to have much fun. 6-8 is approx completion time, thats not much, and ♥♥♥♥ THE ENDING. Happy ending =/= BAD STORY okay?! Just because you gave the game a happy ending doesn't mean its ♥♥♥♥.

I've played countless games with a rich story where it doesn't end in a horribly deppressive dumpster. And you know what the WORST about the ending? Its that its a half win! Let me explain, you get to live with the girl you saved, IN DEATH BECAUSE BOTH OF YOU DIED! Thats even worse than killing the main protagonist right after he saved the world. Scummy ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t. After a tiring ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t last fight i want to be happy not to be told "this is how life works son, get over it" Im playing video games to escape reality FFS!

I think i've ranted enough, now dislike it, because i disagree with you fanboys. IDC

This is basically the same game as Guacamelee Gold, except with a bit of added fluff. Please do not support dishonest business practices and just skip this game altogether. Having to rebuy the game again without even the slightest discount is in no way justifiable.

The technical aspects aren't much to look at either, the game either has huge input lag or A LOT of screen tearing, depending on your VSync settings. Pick your poison.

This game also still does not support online coop, despite the developer saying in the original game that he wanted to implement it, but did not have the time. Yet they apparently had enough time to re-release the same game with a few added skins and a few more enemies? Right...

I'd say vote with your wallet. The developers do not deserve your money.

Guacamelee Gold was one of my favorite pick ups here and I'm glad they did not take long to bring the update here. This game is not only a worthy update but a good starting point for someone who has never played Guacameelee before. I know some people are upset about having to pay for an update but they packed a lot into this. 2 extra levels along with new secrets, intensio mode and my personal favorite a new set of Steam Trading Cards!!

The only negative I can say is my hands still haven't recovered from all the abuse I put them through last time to get 100% on the achievements. But what's a little carpal tunnel to enjoy more of this great universe.

[✔] True Metroidvania style with great powerups, secrets and maps of the areas.
[✔] Great sense of exploration gets you addicted and wondering what's coming up.
[✔] At times unique and challenging platforming relying on your upgrades and powers.
[✔] Enemies, bosses rely on skill to defeat, instead of button mashing, pre-programmed ways.
[✔] Satisfying fighting and combo system.
[✔] Superb and highly fitting soundtrack.
[✔] Great and subtle humor and storyline that doesn't get old.
[✔] Non-linear/Sequence breaking possible.
[✔] Grim Fandango character vibes on acid.
[✔] Lovely artstyle.
[✔] Challenges.
[✔] Steam Workshop.
[✔] Remappable controls.

I've finished the non-turbo version several times with all achievements and this is an amazing upgrade and I just saw an amazing Samus Aran skin so I'm gonna get back to this version now.

You can Suplex a Chicken 11/10

No but to put on my Serious reviewer voice, this is the Improved version of Guacamelee, which comes with nicer looking effects for enemies, your special attacks cause camera shake etc and an "Intenso mode" which makes you super powered for a short time, plus comes with brand new content, plus a new boss (or should I say Trio of bosses), it is a great little upgrade to an already amazing Metroidvania brawler. plus its also a great deal at 66% off for those who owned the other version of Guacamelee,

Downside however is that because it is a new game rather than an expansion/patch for the original version, you will need to start again from the start, but its fun seeing what new additions/Graphics they added in this version.

p.s. the screens when you get powerups are no longer Seizure Inducing, so you wont be blinded by flashy colours when playing in the dark.

NOPE - stupid spike trap thingies are driving me nuts - the controls don't give with what the game asks - my dang fingers are like pretzels on the XBox controller - I officially rage quit and cannot recommend...(as a big fan of these types of plaformers, I know that controls are what matter the most, so a big fat PASS)
