Sup Holmes goes live with Souleye, the composer of VVVVVV


Get to know the people who make great videogames

[Update: Show's over everybody! Thanks so much for watching, and to Magnus for hanging out with us. That new game he's planning sounds completely bonkers. If you missed the live recording, definitely watch the rerun. You wont be disappointed.]

Despite being about five years old, VVVVVV still managed to snag some awards in 2014, including the "Best iPhone/IPad game of 2014" from Metacritic. Designed by Terry Cavanagh, VVVVVV is an unquestionably brilliant exploration/platformer, and has found success wherever it's landed, including PC, Mac, Ouya, 3DS and the previously mentioned smart device releases. It's hopefully still headed to the PS Vita too

Though the gameplay is genius, VVVVVV would be a lot harder to dig into for more than ten minutes at a time if it weren't for the music. Like Super Meat Boy, Mega Man and so many others games that like to kill you, the soundtrack continually inspires a feeling of curiosity and encouragement in the player, even after the 50th death in a row. 

We'll be talking to VVVVVV's composer, Magnus "Souleye" Pålsson about his latest soundtrack, his inspirations, advice for aspiring game composers, his amazing TTWaV theme song cover from a few years back, MMMMMM and a lot more. Join us here at 4pm EST for the live show, because why not? Even if you just tune in for two seconds, you might end up having the a great time. You really might.
