What's This About
This is about PC Metroidvanias, Metroidvania-esques, and sometimes miscellaneous viddya things that I think you will enjoy.
Don’t like the word Metroidvanias? Hate the word Metroidvanias? Does the sight of the word Metroidvanias make you retch?

In The Beginning
I started putting together a short list of PCMV games in a .txt after this thread on G+ in which I got huffy about a A Valley Without Wind, and the implication that PC has no Metroidvanias.
I moved things into this Google Drive spreadsheet (which is still my primary archive).
Then I came across Pixel Prospector’s IndieShmups tumblr and thought that presenting my list with screenshots would be a much better way for people to browser.
The first 120+ posts are an alphabetical cut and paste from my archive. Everything going forward will be whatever news I scrape from a variety of forums and posts.
- 700 posts, of which around 320 represent games that are in development, released, or (unfortunately) abandoned
- 600+ followers, of which all have nice hair
- Introduced a Twitter feed that parrots whatever gets posted on tumblr
