Title: I'm retiring.
Post by: Bruce Michez on January 28, 2019, 03:06:11 PM
I have decided to retire from VVVVVV.  This is because the frustration of playing levels that are both cleverly designed and diabolically difficult has become too much.  I simply cannot cope with hearing the "death" sound effect literally hundreds of times in quick succession just because my movement isn't quiiiite precise enough.  At least something like I Wanna Be the Guy makes a lot of its death scenarios entertaining in their own right - VVVVVV at its worst, I think, is far more liable to put the player in a bad mood because of its austere aesthetic.

So this is goodbye.  I'm still proud of my own contributions, especially the Dimension of the Ancients in [II] and some heated dialogue towards the end of [X].  And I'm grateful to everyone here for being easily one of the friendliest online communities I've ever come across.  And hey, a game as charming as VVVVVV is worthy of such a community.

Make Terry proud, everyone.

Aw man. Your levels were excellent and the kind of high-quality content this game deserves, and your comments on other levels have always been thoughtful and worth reading. Hate to see you go, but I respect your decision.

(ps if you change your mind you're still welcome here)
