Spelunky Wiki

There are hundreds of lines of dialogue found in Spelunky 2. Most are seen when inside of a Shop or speaking to another Spelunker in the Camp.

Intro Dialogue

After the game's intro plays, three random lines of dialogue display over a black screen, representing Ana Spelunky's thoughts.

Line 1

  • Still dizzy from my arrival,
  • Putting the faded photo in my pocket,
  • Pushing aside my fears,
  • After going over my plan one last time,
  • My heart pounding in my chest,
  • With my memories of Earth already fading,
  • With my mind already made up,
  • Uncertain whether I was ready,
  • With Fortune smiling down on me,

Line 2

  • I gripped the rope tightly,
  • I took a deep breath,
  • I pulled out my torch,
  • I called out to Monty,
  • I took one last look at the stars,
  • I thought of Mom and Dad,
  • I whispered something now forgotten,
  • I closed my eyes,
  • I gave thanks to my ancestors,

Line 3

  • And descended into the darkness.
  • And wondered if I'd ever see them again.
  • And felt a cold chill rising from below.
  • And ventured into the unknown.
  • And felt excited for the upcoming adventure.
  • And vowed to return alive.
  • And then swore I heard voices coming from below. (May be alluding to Tiamat)
  • And that's when it all started.
  • And felt a wave of calm wash over me.

Camp Dialogue
