A Free Spike Joint: VVVVVV - Make And Play Edition

The noisE3 is dying down and we’re returning to some semblance of normality. That means I might actually find time to play some games on this here computer rather than watching hundreds of trailers and livestreams about games that I probably won’t dabble with even when they are released in December 2015. It also means I can take a moment out of my day to report some jolly good news from Camp Cavanagh. The designer of fiendish musical masterpiece Super Hexagon has released a free version of his acclaimed spike-dodger VVVVVV and it’s available now for Windows, Mac and Linux.

VVVVVV: Make And Play Edition doesn’t include the game’s lovely narrative or Terry’s original levels, but it does contain the editor and a selection of player constructions. There’s an editor tutorial here and an example of the kind of cruel tests you should force people to endure in the video below.

Not a fucking chance. Terry says this:

Let’s start with what I consider the really important thing – inspired by things like Knytt Stories and DROD: Architect’s Edition, I’m releasing a special build of VVVVVV on Windows, Mac and Linux today. It’s called VVVVVV: Make and Play Edition, and it’s completely free. This version of the game only includes the player levels and the level editor – which means that, from now on, the tools to make and play VVVVVV player levels are completely free.

“Start with”? What else? Ports!

VVVVVV is now available on iThings and Android devices, including the OUYA.
