Let me start by saying I know very little about the differences between Spelunky and Spelunky HD. However, I assume there are some because a good number of the existing questions for it are also tagged or , presumably to distinguish it as the HD version. This probably wasn't a good system in the first place, but now that the HD version has come to PC, it makes even less sense.

What needs to be done with these? Should we just remove the extraneous tags, or do we need a new tag for ?

    Per previous discussions on the subject, the key question here is: Is the existing content from the original Spelunky materially different in Spelunky HD? Or is the HD edition merely different because of the inclusion of new, additional content? If the former, we need a second tag. If the latter, then spelunky should be plenty, and people can distinguish in the question body. – LessPop_MoreFizz Aug 11 '13 at 16:14

    To address how different they are for folks who are not familiar with the game, I'll point to a pair of chat messages I spoke of the subject in the past. – Grace Note Aug 11 '13 at 16:18

For lack of anyone else more knowledgeable speaking up, and based on the fact that from @GraceNote's link it appears as if there were enough differences to at least warrant the extra tag, I propose the creation of .

Worst case scenario, we collapse the tags together later.

    +1, this is probably the best way to approach it. I feel like we should do the same thing for ducktales-remastered when ti comes out. – GnomeSlice Aug 12 '13 at 19:50
  • @gnomeslice Ducktales is a whole other ball of wax; it needs it's own tag, but for different reasons. – LessPop_MoreFizz Aug 13 '13 at 0:42
  • I've now implemented this and retagged the relevant questions as spelunky-hd. As I said, it does not preclude the option of still merging the two tags together if we deem it appropriate, but it seems like a good first step. – Sterno Aug 13 '13 at 0:43
