Title: Viridian is a Girl
Post by: PJBottomz on September 28, 2011, 05:09:27 PM
This was a link on an old topic to a blogspot of a girl who makes dolls of characters from popular games and TV shows. I found this Viridian doll (which is awesome), but read the text next to it:

(http://i.imgur.com/ckr43.png)

... That just completely changes the entire spectrum of VVVVVV (no, I'm not sexist). But hey, that means that there aren't 4 boys and 2 girls on the DDS Souleye anymore!

It's pretty surprising. But, it makes the game a LOT more interesting than it was.

This isn't true, actually.

Notice how Viridian is posed as "male" in the game itself. (Well, the user levels.)

Pairing time:

 :violet: goes with  :verdigris:

 :victoria: goes with  :viridian:

 :vermillion: and  :vitellary: just stay single.

Actually, Terry said that he PURPOSELY didn't tell us Viridian's gender. It was never hinted in the game. I think there was a whole topic on this subject.

Post by: Dispensers Heal on September 28, 2011, 05:46:44 PM
Well, the user levels pose him as male.

Also, do they actually wear clothes? PPPPPPowerup shows them as spacesuit-wearing people, while there are many who believe they're actually running around naked. (That would mean spikes hurt EVEN MORE.)

That's why VVVVVV is so great - you can speculate ANYTHING about it. You don't know anything about the characters ACTUAL looks - they might not even be human.
Title: Re: Viridian is a Girl
Post by: Dispensers Heal on September 28, 2011, 05:57:38 PM
That's what I theorize.

They came from another dimension, where they don't wear clothes. Also, everyone there can invert their own gravity at will.

After the events of the game, they probably colonized a newly-stabled Dimension VVVVVV, which never would collapse in the first place. Their ship was also upgraded to have actual amenities (like a Cooking Terminal and beds)

I don't think Viridian is necessarily a boy or necessarily a girl.

You can decide for yourselves, and that's what the blog poster apparently did, seeing as she is female.

There is no standardized gender for Viridian, so every player, male or female, can assume his or her role.
Title: Re: Viridian is a Girl
Post by: PJBottomz on September 28, 2011, 06:20:01 PM
But Terry HIMSELF said that Viridian is a girl. Did you see the picture?
Title: Re: Viridian is a Girl
Post by: ThePaSch on September 28, 2011, 06:23:07 PM
Whoops. Guess he did.

Well, might have been a slip, but even if Viridian is a girl, I don't really care. :)
Why would that change the entire spectrum of VVVVVV, though?
Title: Re: Viridian is a Girl
Post by: PJBottomz on September 28, 2011, 06:27:05 PM
Well, first, it makes the DDS Souleye crew even - 3 girls and 3 boys.

Second, it makes the game better because most heroes are not girls. Terry has broken the fourth wall by making Viridian a girl. (Not really, but to me it seems like it...)

Viridian is Viridian.

But Terry, IS Viridian a girl? Because, according to this complete legal internet picture document, you said, "SHE is optimistic" and stuff.
Title: Re: Viridian is a Girl
Post by: Dispensers Heal on September 28, 2011, 06:33:23 PM
So, what he said is true: VIRIDIAN IS VIRIDIAN.

Wait... if Viridian = Viridian...

...nah, not possible.

I still believe he's male, though. He and Victoria seem to be a pairing that will work.

Post by: Martze on September 28, 2011, 07:46:09 PM
I myself assumed Viridian was male, but then I read somewhere that Viridian's gender was deliberately left unspecified. For that reason, I was very careful to avoid revealing Viridian's gender in my user levels. That's why the descriptions say refer to Viridian as "you." It was awkward, but it was better than repeatedly saying Viridian. In fact, that's the whole joke behind the terminal in Quantum Tunnel that asks for Viridian's gender. Viridian responds with a joke, and the terminal is annoyed, but in the end it doesn't come out. The idea was to skirt dangerously close to revealing it, then veer away at the last second.

It's interesting that people don't pick up on this more, actually - the idea is that the complimentary colours are a little "closer" to each other, which is very obvious in the case of :verdigris: and :violet:, a little less obvious in the case of  :viridian: and :vermillion:, but perhaps it's entirely too subtle in the case of :vitellary: and :victoria:. :vitellary: and :victoria: actually have a great deal of mutual respect and admiration for each other.

Complimentary colors? You mean that colors that look good together? If that was the case, then wouldn't it be :vermillion: and :victoria:?
Title: Re: Viridian is a Girl
Post by: Martze on September 29, 2011, 12:59:20 PM
In Kindergarten, they teach the RYB color model because it corresponds well with the colors people use colloquially in our culture. But they aren't true primaries because they can't produce certain shades--for instance, cyan and magenta. The RYB color system produces a more limited color space.

VVVVVV uses this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RGB_color_model

I'm no expert on color theory, but I am of the understanding that the RGB color model more closely approximates the way the human eye works. It's not perfect, though, because there's a psychological and cultural component to it. For instance, most everything between cyan and blue is generally called "blue", and there's special words for light red (pink) and dark orange (brown).

 :viridian: +  :victoria: makes more sense.  :vitellary: is too involved in being the smart one (and thus probably married science) and  :vermillion: loves the Super Gravitron.

Also,  :verdigris: and  :violet: are in a relationship. They also suffer amusing injuries.

Do you even play VVVVVV? :victoria: is obviously obsessed with :vitellary: because of the way she constantly worries about him. And :verdigris: and :violet: are not IN a relationship. Verdigris just likes her. And :viridian: loves trinkets. And :vermillion: loves... pudding?

:viridian: and :victoria: wouldn't work because :victoria: doesn't like adventuring.

That's from before VVVVVV's release, and in the game itself, Viridian's gender is left unspecified. Terry probably changed his mind in the meantime.

The point is, in the end, it doesn't really matter.

I always assumed that a very complicated process went into the ability to flip, and that the process was made to be so quick, you could flip as a soon as you land, but it was also made so slow that you couldn't flip again while in the air.

In short, they use a velocity paradox to create a single flip, and to prevent mid-air flipping.

When I was in training for my new job, I was playing with the Office Communicator... basically a work version of MSN Messenger that connects you to EVERYONE around the country who works in my department.  I was able to search for names... and I was searching all the VVVVVV names one day.  No Vitellary, no Vermillion, a handful of Violets, no Verdigris, plenty of Victorias... when I got to Viridian, I wasn't expecting anyone.  There was one...

NO! It's not that! It's :victoria: + :vitellary:

It's interesting that people don't pick up on this more, actually - the idea is that the complimentary colours are a little "closer" to each other, which is very obvious in the case of :verdigris: and :violet:, a little less obvious in the case of  :viridian: and :vermillion:, but perhaps it's entirely too subtle in the case of :vitellary: and :victoria:. :vitellary: and :victoria: actually have a great deal of mutual respect and admiration for each other.

Considering I believe Viridian to be male, and I'm against homosexuality, I'm kinda against pairing him with Vermillion, though I think they were probably really good friends and have been for a very long time.

Do you even play VVVVVV? :victoria: is obviously obsessed with :vitellary: because of the way she constantly worries about him. And :verdigris: and :violet: are not IN a relationship. Verdigris just likes her. And :viridian: loves trinkets. And :vermillion: loves... pudding?

Oh, that's what you meant. Victoria and Verdigris could be childhood friends or even siblings for all we know. Viridian pairing with Victoria makes the most sense to me, but I guess my opinion is not everyone's.

Also, just because two people don't agree on something doesn't mean that they can't be in a relationship. I once heard of an author who had to stop writing because his wife absolutely hated it.

:vitellary: loves SCIENCE.
 :vermillion: loves ADVENTURE!!! And space!

 :verdigris: and  :violet: are an official couple. Intermission 1 is where :verdigris: asked :viridian: about dating tips. He then dated Violet.

They're not an official couple, though I bet they become one very soon after the end of the game.

Sorry, just posting my 2 cents worth. Maybe it'd be best just to leave Viridian single and with an unknown gender.
