Flap, Jacked – Terry Cavanagh’s Maverick Bird

No, Christ, don't look to me for an impassioned editorial about Flappy Bird. There's already an Encyclopaedia Brittania's worth of analytics-chasing bullshit* about this now-withdrawn mobile game and its overly-scrutinised creator out there already, as SEO-crazed news sites strain to capitalise on interest in a from-nowhere breakout hit. The trafficks! The precious trafficks! Worse, when concrete news ground to a halt, the airwaves filled instead…

Hexagonesque: Rotational

Terry Cavanagh's Super Hexagon is very mean. It pushed me down and stole my lunch money. Then it calmly suggested that I try again, and I did and it got pretty brilliant after a while and IT WAS ALL THE GAME'S FAULT. I'm not sure why anyone would write a love letter to it, but that's exactly what Rotational is - and a fairly interesting…

Nega-Hexagon: Chaotic

What a thing Terry Cavanagh has done. What a thing. He's only gone and inspired a new wave of game designers to go forth and do smart things with ultra-minimalism and design purity. Super Hexagon is and will be, I suspect a more important game than anyone expects, even though it's already highly feted in The Right Circles. While there will doubtless be more cynical…

Humble Android 5 Also On PC, With Added Hexagons

Here's a clever idea: instead of paying £30 for a game, or getting it for free then buying lots of little extra bits, or helping to fund it pre-release, what about paying what you want for it? For instance, as part of a bundle of other games? Next big thing, you mark my words. Team Humble's just gone live with its first ever experiment using…

Hexcellent: Super Hexagon PC-Bound Next Week

After a fair deal of ugliness concerning its sort-of-evil clone, Super Hexagon is finally, definitely, mark-it-in-your-calendar-ably twisting and turning its way onto PC. Which is great, because the, um, third-person hexagoner - a diabolical product of the evilest brain trapped inside a very nice person - is a masochistically compulsive good time. But creator Terry Cavanagh declared it as little as two weeks out from…

Open Hexagon Copies Cavanagh

Update 1 - there's been some kind of breakdown in communications here, as it transpires that Terry Cavanagh isn't as cool with this game as we first thought. While the Open Hexagon dev was given a blessing to make a game 'inspired' by Super Hexagon, he was explicitly told that it couldn't be a clone. And yet... So, if you like Open Hexagon please be…

War On Geometry: Super Hexagon Coming To PC

With his new iOS game, Super Hexagon, I've just realised that Terry "VVVVVV" Cavanagh has a plan, and it's to achieve immortality through drinking the tears of broken souls, bent over electronic torture devices screaming his name in fear and fury. I hate him. I hate him. I hate him. Super Hexagon will be coming out on PC. You will hate him too. Hate. There's…
