Chipzel and Cavanagh team up again in the latest Dicey Dungeons update

'Dice equipment management' might not be a phrase that ignites your passion for turn-based roguelikes, but it does accurately describe Terry Cavanagh's latest game. Don't be fooled though: Dicey Dungeons is still in alpha, but it's already a blast. Update 0.11 landed last night, introducing new art from Marlowe Dobbe and new music from Chipzel. You might remember Chipzel from Super Hexagon, a previous game…

Terry Cavanagh’s next game is Dicey Dungeons, and it’s delicious

There's a temptation to look at games with dice in them and go 'EW! Randomness!'. I'm aware of that because it's sometimes my instinctive reaction, even though I know better: dice can be a fantastic driver for Interesting Decisions, and Terry Cavanagh's latest project proves it. He's been working on Dicey Dungeons for the past 3 months, though it was only this week that he…

Type stuff and see what happens in Constellation

Forget 'God Games', because Super Hexagon creator Terry Cavanagh has come up with something that that shows you what it's really like to be a deity. Constellation is a free game with a five word premise: type stuff, see what happens. You can run it in your browser, and while it's designed to be played at events I've been having fun poking at it on…

The islander robots of State Machine prep for doomsday

When I came in to work today John was bright red with an incommunicable rage. It can only mean one thing: a new game about programming is coming out. This one is called State Machine [official site] and it’s from Terry Cavanagh of VVVVVV and Ruari O’Sullivan, aka randomnine, of Fear Is Vigilance and Beacon. Luckily, I quite like programmey games, so I calmly slipped…

Grab Them By The Eyes: Signs From Terry Cavanagh

This morning I have been enjoying Grab Them By The Eyes [official site] - a game by Terry Cavanagh about the cut-throat business of selling burgers on street corners. But it's not about who has the best burgers - that would be ridiculous. It's about who has the best burger signage and thus you must compete with your rival street corner businessmen to buy messages,…

Have You Played… VVVVVV?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. VVVVVV is about you and the challenge in front of you. Are you fast enough with your left-right maneuvering to dodge spikes as you fall upwards into the sky? Are you skilled enough to reverse gravity the second your feet touch the ceiling,…

Moving Stories Tells Tales Through Your Suitcase

Moving Stories by Terry Cavanagh (him off Super Hexagon and VVVVVV) and Stephen Lavelle (Puzzlescript, English Country Tune) is a satisfying little snack of a game I've been prodding at for about 20 minutes. The idea is you're moving house and only have a limited amount of space in your suitcase so you must choose the things you wish to take with you. Once the…

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…

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…

The Entire World Is A Lie In VVVVVV Creator’s Naya’s Quest

Naya's Quest, the latest from VVVVVV and Super Hexagon creator Terry Cavanagh, is an incredibly stressful game. You know that whole relationship you have with your eyes where they by and large tell you the visual truth of a situation? That thing your entire basis of reality is more or less founded upon? Yeah, well, forget about that. You play as a girl (presumably named Naya,…

Feature: The (Indie) Stars Align

Experiment 12 review

Terry Cavanagh. Jasper Byrne. Ian Snyder. Jack King-Spooner. Richard Perrin. Zaratustra. Michael Brough. Robert Yang. Alan Hazelden. Benn Powell. Jake Clover. TheBlackMask. You have probably played games by all of these people. VVVVVV might ring a bell. Maybe Lone Survivor or Kairo. Or, if you're really, really cool, Blues For Mittavinda. Etc, etc, etc. You get the idea. But now they've all congealed into a…

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…

Feature: Terry Cavanagh does the chat

IGF Factor 2012: At A Distance

Terry 'VVVVVV' Cavanagh's ultra-minimalist, abstract first-person co-op puzzler At A Distance is nominated for the Nuovo award at this year's Independent Games Festival. As part of our seemingly infinite series in which we chat to (almost) all the finalists, Terry talks about the concept behind the game, what he'd like to see win at the IGF this year, his disappointment that the Pirate Kart didn't…

Cat Life: ChatChat

Instructions: "be a cat." This is all you need to know about VVVVVV creator Terry Cavanagh's free and cannily-named mini-MMO, ChatChat. Go on, be a cat. Do what cats do (bum-licking not included, mercifully). Hang around with other cats in the way that cats do, i.e. doing your best to ignore them with barely-concealed hostility. Catch mice. Leave dead mice as gruesome offerings to your…

Now Proximal: At A Distance

Terry Cavanagh's extraordinary first-person co-op puzzle game, At A Distance, is now available to download for free. You'll need two networked PCs side by side to play it with a friend or helpful acquaintance. I played it with an Alec, as you can read here. We found it to be something quite special, demanding both considered co-operation, spatial thinking, lateral thinking, inside-out thinking, and boiled…
