The PAX indie darling Guacamelee! has finally come out on the PSN and PSVita, and it is jam-packed with internet references. We’re talking memes, game references, and fine art. The list goes on, it’s too much for anyone to catalogue — but Game Front’s Mitch is giving it the old college try in his Guacamelee! easter eggs video above.
For those curious, Guacamelee! is a Metroid-style 2D action-platformer. Making progress requires exploring, and exploration is vividly rewarded thanks to all the new sights — it feels like every inch is coated with reverent gaming call-backs or advice-meme inclusions. If you’re an internet denizen (like us) you’ll want to see how much has been jammed into Guacamelee!
