Spelunky PC introduces daily challenges

You may think you're the world's finest Spelunky player, but how can you prove it when the levels are procedurally generated different for everyone. Enter Daily Challenges, coming in the revamped PC edition to let everyone compete on equal footing in a new adventure every day.
The Daily Challenges will create a new adventure each day, the same for every player attempting it, and track competence on leaderboards. Players only get one life too, so if you die you'll need to wait for a new challenge the next day.
"One chance... each day. For guts... for glory. No excuses!" developer Mossmouth said.
Challenges will be exclusive to the Steam release, sorry GOGers. The PC edition of the Xbox 360 revamp of the free PC roguelike platformer will launch on August 8.
