Hey everyone! I have lots of big annoucements about VVVVVV today, so let’s get to it!

VVVVVV: Make and Play Edition

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.

(last updated 18/06/2014)

People have done some really incredible things with the VVVVVV editor. I want to share that work as far and wide as I can!

Lots of new VVVVVV ports

VVVVVV is now available on iPhone, iPad, Android, and OUYA!

These ports have been quite a long time coming! Actually, I originally started the iPhone port before I started Super Hexagon, way back in 2012. So it feels very, very good to finally have it finished, and released. This is something I felt I really had to take on myself – VVVVVV’s important to me, and it was really important to me that this be done right. I wanted the game to be as good as it could be on mobile. I feel very good about how it’s turned out!

You can get it from here:

[VVVVVV for iOS]

[VVVVVV for Android]

[VVVVVV for OUYA]

Nicalis have been working on a Vita port as well – this should be coming out sometime this summmer!

Super Gravitron

Surprise! Today I’m also releasing another game on iOS and Android: Super Gravitron. It’s a little minigame that you might remember from the end of VVVVVV!

It’s acting as sort of a demo, but mostly I just think it happens to work really well as it’s own thing on mobile. And it’s completely free! Get it here:

[Super Gravitron for iOS]

[Super Gravitron for Android]

Version 2.2

Thanks to Ethan Lee, VVVVVV on desktop has finally gotten an update! Version 2.2 fixes a bunch of long standing bugs (for example, player level warp lines) and makes the 2.1 changes official (like player maps, coloured text in player levels, editor direct mode, etc).

If you’re on steam, this update also adds achievements! They’re the same ones that VVVVVV always had, except now they’re recognised by steam. If you’ve already got them, log into today and you should get awarded a bunch of them at once, which is extremely satisfying!

mmmmmm
MMMMMM

Finally – remember that amazing Metal Medley of VVVVVV music by @FamilyJules7x? Yeah, both Souleye and I were seriously impressed!

Introducing: MMMMMM! A complete Metal cover of the VVVVVV soundtrack! You can pick it up today directly from Souleye!

The soundtrack comes with a mod, which you can install in your player level directory to play the game with the metal soundtrack instead of the original one!

That’s all, everyone! Thanks for playing!

    Awesome! :D
    You forgot to mention that the Humble Bundle version was updated too. :)
    Is there a detailed changelog that I could read somewhere?

  2. blackwhite on June 12th, 2014

    awesome! I’m gonna get downloading right now :D

  3. FIQ on June 12th, 2014

    Cool! Going to grab a copy of the Android version, and update my VVVVVV on desktop. Thanks for awesomeness!

  4. crazyal02 on June 12th, 2014

    How do I update my VVVVVV if I got it from Humble Bundle?

  5. tyqui on June 12th, 2014

    Fantastic. Any chance of a gamepad update for the Steam version?

  6. Cocoroco on June 12th, 2014

    Holy sh*t! Too much stuff for to check. Glad to see that long wanted 2.2 desktop release! Thanks, Terry!

  7. vvovv on June 12th, 2014

    MMMMMM is so hard to parse omg yes perfect.

  8. FIQ on June 12th, 2014

    The “Game Options” menu in the “Make & Play” edition has messed up descriptions for entries since you conveniently removed the “unlock modes” menu entry. Just saying :P

  9. Terry on June 12th, 2014

    Yeah, just saw that on twitter! I’ll fix it in a minor patch soon :)

  10. loafin on June 12th, 2014

    Will the GOG version of VVVVVV be updated too?

  11. quat on June 12th, 2014

    I would buy the android version now but I’m currently 70c too poor :(((( Oh well. Super Gravitron is fun.

  12. Taylor Anderson on June 12th, 2014

    I’ve played super gravitron obsessively for years, with a high score of like 6 minutes, so this news is absolutely delightful for me

  13. xerxenesky on June 12th, 2014

    Great! I love any reason to play it all over again!

  14. Doormat on June 12th, 2014

    Is it me, or is the Predestined Fate remix not in the Windows version? Reportedly, it’s in the Mac version and can be played with music(15a), but that doesn’t work on Windows. The vvvvvvmusic.vvv files from Windows and Mac also have a 3MB difference (the mac one is bigger).

  15. Davide on June 12th, 2014

    Dealbreaker: does the Android version support gamepads?

  16. Nicky on June 12th, 2014

    I am going to make the purchase as soon as I can find my iTunes cards. I’ve been waiting for this to happen and now it’s here :)

    And I previewed MMMMMM (the music, not the VVVVVV remake) – Total epicness. (Spell check says that’s not a word, but whatever)

  17. WEGFan on June 12th, 2014

    Version 2.2 crashed a lot of times when I was playing The Final Level in time trial mode.

  18. Doormat on June 12th, 2014

    For anyone who cares, I made a fix for the VVVVVV M&P Windows version, concerning the Predestined Fate remix. Download the Mac or Linux version, find the vvvvvvmusic.vvv file, and replace the music file in the Windows version with the Mac/Linux one. Then you can use music(15a) in your scripts to use it. I hope Terry fixes it soon.

  19. Me on June 12th, 2014

    The Android port is pure awesomeness!

    All that you need now is a Wii U port of VVVVVV! Could you imagine playing on the big screen, with the map on the gamepad??? I’d buy that 3x over!

    Nice work!

  20. Tehno on June 12th, 2014

    Why is the game so blurry on retina iPad? App loading page is nice and crisp but menu and game look blurry (up-scaled image with smoothing on?). I want it nice and scrisp and pixelly on iPad too.

  21. Al on June 12th, 2014

    Excellent updates and it works great on Android. Just one problem, it doesn’t seem to have a clean way to exit the game (or I’m missing something obvious)

  22. Deathspawner on June 12th, 2014

    Like some others here, I’d love to know if the Android version supports a gamepad. Would love to play it on the NVIDIA SHIELD.

  23. Smilex on June 12th, 2014

    I believe the Linux download link for vvvvvvmp is broken

  24. ConsUme on June 12th, 2014

    I Can’t Access it in 7zip “An attempt was made to move the file pointer at the beginning”

  25. Sam Watkins on June 12th, 2014

    This … is … awesome!

    Played through the game again tonight, and I got 2 achievements. Too tired and weak to do 10 seconds in the Super Gravitron tonight!!

    Bought the new soundtrack just now and installed it to the game. I will play through flip mode in the Metal!

    Thanks so much for improving my favourite game, and my favourite game music.

  26. Sam Watkins on June 12th, 2014

    Forgot to mention, I played it in analogue mode this time, which makes veni vidi vici and the gravitron a little bit harder! veni vidi vici is still too hard for me, lol

  27. John Doe on June 12th, 2014

    Incorrect MIME-type on your Linux (possibly others, didn’t check) download.

  28. AnIcePerson on June 12th, 2014

    Keep in mind, you’re going to need to use chmod to make the Linux file executable.
    Open a terminal where you’ve downloaded the file (in many file managers, you can right click in the download directory and click “Open Terminal Here” or similar) and run these commands:

    sudo chmod a x ./VVVVVV-MP-2.2-bin
    sudo bash ./VVVVVV-MP-2.2-bin

  29. superkirbiobros on June 13th, 2014

    Last I checked I hit 11th for super grav (paid)! I can’t believe that someone got over a minute – and it wasn’t Terry! Terry you literally let someone beat you at your own game!

  30. Leandro on June 13th, 2014

    You should also mention that VVVVVV for 3DS is on sale on Nintendo eShop, through 6/26. It’s a nicalis sale promoting 1001 spikes.

  31. broke on June 13th, 2014

    the windows version’s archive (VVVVVV-MP-2.2.zip)is corrupted

  32. Terry on June 13th, 2014

    Just updated the make and play edition now!

  33. Sean on June 13th, 2014

    Terry, just downloaded the new zip and it works for me. Thank you SO much for doing this. Loving the make and play edition and the fact that I can play VVVVVV on my phone!

  34. tahrox on June 13th, 2014

    MMMMMM is where it’s at. Potential for Anything forever.

  35. RibShark on June 14th, 2014

    For some reason the Android version is not appearing as a download in the Humble Bundle app. For Super Hexagon, when I bought it for PC, it also appeared in the Humble Bundle app for Android. Shouldn’t this also be the case here?

  36. Puzzlerr on June 14th, 2014

    To open it on linux all you have to do is right clic on the file and make it an ejecutable file

  37. Doormat on June 14th, 2014

    The sound doesn’t seem to work for me, and pressing M crashes the game.

  38. Doormat on June 14th, 2014

    Nevermind, it works now. It was just the Stereo Mix on my computer

  39. Sn0wy on June 14th, 2014

    Minor bug: with the achievements: You can get the achievements for completing the time trials for each level regardless of the rank you get, but the in-game trophies require V ranks. Intended?

  40. WalterBennet on June 15th, 2014

    Long-time fan of VVVVVV, I own it on 3 different platforms now. Just finished it again on iOS. Still a totally fantastic experience. Have you ever considered making a sequel?

  41. Dragus on June 15th, 2014

    Hi, is it somehow possibke to update the ios-version wirh the mmmmmm-soundtrack? That would be totally awesome.

  42. Jan on June 16th, 2014

    Hi!

    i just (re)purchased VVVVVV for iOS and I am surprised how well it works :) (thanks for one of my all time favorite games!)

    BUT: why is this game so blurry? :/ This is a game that should look extremely crisp because of its style – but on iOS at least it looks like I have to play it through thick steam :(

  43. MrBrown on June 16th, 2014

    The Android port of VVVVVVV is awesome, but it would be nice to be able to exit the game using the back button (in Super Hexagon it works that way), currently I have to exit the game using the home button, which is kinda ugly, because normally pressing the home button doesn’t quit the application but leaves it running in the background.

  44. Matt on June 16th, 2014

    How do I play the Make and Play version on Windows 8? I can’t seem to get it to work and I don’t know why.

  45. FIQ on June 16th, 2014

    I’m running Windows 8 and the M&P version works just fine.

    What is the problem you’re having?

  46. nicholashin on June 17th, 2014

    Considering the introduction of VVVVVV Make and Play Edition, why don’t you add the link to the forum back?

  47. Mike on June 18th, 2014

    i can’t get the windows version to even open. i click on VVVVVV.exe file but it gives me an error everytime. something im not doing? help pls

  48. NekoMithos on June 20th, 2014

    Yo Terry, I hope this is inspired by all the other DRoD games as well, or haven’t you played those yet? :p

  49. @MrJosh9000 on June 21st, 2014

    Trying to load the awesome MMMMMM music replacement mod. The game v2.2 opens and run just fine but no change in music…
    For fun I tried to run it from the terminal.
    “Unable to open file mmmmmm.vvv”
    Can someone MD5 their copy of mmmmmm.vvv and check it matches mine?
    MD5 (mmmmmm.vvv) = 8309d06be0228708c5b47e54a3d8d01e

  50. FIQ on June 21st, 2014

    Are you placing it correctly? It should be placed in the VVVVVV document root, the directory where you have “levels” and “Saves”

  51. @MrJosh9000 on June 21st, 2014

    @FIQ Yes, it is in ~/Documents/VVVVVV/ (yes, running on a Mac)

  52. woolyninja on June 22nd, 2014

    I too am having troubles on a Mac to get it to run.

  53. woolyninja on June 22nd, 2014

    Nevermind – I figured it out finally on a Mac.
    Needed to put it in the ~/Library/Application Support/VVVVVV folder.

  54. @MrJosh9000 on June 23rd, 2014

    Yay it works! ~/Library/Application Support/VVVVVV

  55. Vulpix on July 6th, 2014

  56. Vulpix on July 6th, 2014

  57. random on July 6th, 2014

    Linux link for make and play edition broken and can’t get win version to run in WINE. :(

  58. Vulpix on July 6th, 2014

    Now I installed MSVCR100.dll in SysWOW64 and System32, but now it says that the application can’t start correctly (0xc000007b). Any help?

  59. Vulpix on July 6th, 2014

    Should I have extracted data.zip?

  60. Echoes on July 9th, 2014

    The Android version runs beautifully on the BlackBerry Z30. Can’t believe I missed this little gem all this time. :)

  61. MCS on November 25th, 2014

    I cant run the make and share version, I’m running on windows. I grabbed the windows version, I extracted it, and then it says there’s a missing file. Can you help? I just can’t run it, but it is a very awesome game :)
