VVVVVV For Victory

I'll be doing a Wot I Think about this later in the week, with any luck, but I wanted to do a quick post to bring this to your attention as it's just been released. VVVVVV is the first full-size "real" game from Terry "distractionware" Cavanagh who you may know from the previously-hailed Judith and Don't Look Back. VVVVVV is an imaginary 80s classic with modern formalist brilliance - as Braid is to Super Mario Brothers, VVVVVV is to Jet Set Willy. If you don't want to download the demo, you can play it online at Kongregate and then buy it from here for nine (count 'em!) quid. Lots more to say, but I'll leave you with the footage...

I think it'll be interesting to see how well it does. For anything with such deliberately retro graphics, nine-quid creates a knee-jerk "Are you sure?" response. I think that response may be well worth getting over, however. Anyway - more anon. Go play.
