VVVVVV

Postby baconisgood23 » Wed Jun 12, 2013 7:45 pm

I just recently started playing this game. It's about a little blue guy whose only ability is flipping gravity and you have to use this ability to solve a ton of outrageous puzzles. It's a ver mind-benidng game, and quite addicting. At one point, you may think it's the best game ever, and a few minutes later, you'll start screaming at the game and ranting about how the developer "is an evil, horrible demon that hates gamers." Either way, the feeling of accomplishment you get after solving a hard puzzle is unmatched. Plus, the sountrack is awesome. It's definitely worth the 5 bucks it costs.



Here's a demo for the game, if your interested: http://www.kongregate.com/games/terryca ... vvvvv-demo

Apparently one guy died 10,000 times in this game. Must be some sort of world record. :mrgreen:

Sadly, that's not the sort of thing they print in the record books. :(

I received it in a Humble Bundle as well. Wow, that game can get frustrating at times. I've barely started it, and I have already set it aside for less aggravating fare. :lol:

Still, I think Terry Cavanaugh (the person who designed the game) serves as a great example of how independent game designers, with a great idea and some know-how, can achieve stunning success. His story can serve as inspiration to others who also want to try their hand at game development!

I just tried the demo.

This is no game. This is...I don't even. A devilish challenge to both mind and reflex.

If I ever actually managed to beat this, I would list it on a resume as job experience.

Once you get used to the physics it gets a lot easier,
at least till you run into a hard part...
but at least with the game's amazing music it's actually quite enjoyable to keep trying and dieing over and over. :P
Be part of the answer, not part of the problem.

Yes, this happens to be a favorite of mine, especially because of the music. Anybody else beaten it? If so, how many deaths did you have? I believe there is an area where this can be seen, and trophies are awarded for low death counts.
