You should play VVVVVV's challenging new levels photo



Terry Cavanagh's ridiculously good platformer VVVVVV has been made even better thanks to its inclusion in the Humble Indie Bundle. The game was rebuilt in C++, guys. That happened! Now Linux users can see what the fuss is about, but you probably already knew that.

Creative types should get a kick out of the new level editor. I'm notoriously bad at working these things, and even I found VVVVVV's editor to be intuitive enough. If you're merely in the mood to play, not build, ten new dimensions have been included as well. This added content is free of charge.

Interestingly (or not), these levels were created by people you may or may not recognize. The screenshot above comes from a dimension crafted by Souleye, the person responsible for the game's glorious tunes. It made me weep.

Review: VVVVVV (3DS)

VVVVVV is one of those games that doesn't feel like it should exist. It's name alone is hard enough for most people to compute. Then just look at the thing. It's nostalgic for a period of gaming that even I'm almost too old t...more

VVVVVV for the 3DS is... well, it's VVVVVV

During the eShop preview event, Tyrone Rodriguez of Nicalis was on hand to demonstrate the 3DS iteration of the revered, renowned, and hard-as-balls VVVVVV. I can confirm here officially - the game is still as insanely difficult and as infuriatingly addictive as ever. As for new additions to the VVVVVV gameplay structure, well...more

Slugcat gifs? Slugcat gifs

It's been a while since I've espoused my love for Rain World. It looks even smoother in this interesting Kickstarter update, as the game has transitioned to Unity. The update is a good read, but if you're just here for the gifs, well, I feel you. Ain't nothing wrong with that.more
