VVVVVVX (It's a thing I made)
« on: October 03, 2010, 10:45:42 PM »
A friend asked me if I was going to call it VVVVVVDDD, which in hindsight might've been even more appropriately silly.

Very cool! But if the update 2 was like this, I'm pretty sure that many people would stop playing VVVVVV. It's a 2D platform. That's what makes many people play the game (or at least me). Remember the good old times...

Thanks! I always appreciate your appreciation. Then again, I suppose this kinda is fan art taken to the next.. dimension, so I guess you have all the reason to like it.

I appreciate the comments, but you're totally wrong about the version 2 thing! And I think you're also underestimating just how much work that was, and would be...

Really nice!

By the way, there is a thread on these forums about a remake that will be done in 3D of VVVVVV.
It's called QQQQQQ.
It was originally based off of a CoD:4 build mod but then migrated to OpenArena, the Quake 3 engine.
It's still a work in progress, but if it ever does get done, it would probably be something like this.
It's posted in one of the sticky threads at the top of the VVVVVV board.  It's called 'VVVVVV Demakes and Fangames'.  Terry started the thread and stickied it himself a while back to compile all those works together in one place.
So, while Terry may not be working on a 3D version of VVVVVV, someone else probably will, in due time, make a 3D version.

Haha, oh gosh! But it's such a shoddy remix! And I only have that short part that I used in the trailer... And it sounds really bad without the original track behind it. But I suppose, if you have some grand scheme for it, I could flesh it out at least a little bit and send it over. Maybe. Perhaps.

I think you'll have to convince me to do it!

  Launching response program...

  Calculating potential responses...

[Vanity]I will build upon it to make a new-and-improved version of Positive Force that will conquer the world, and credit mainly you! FAIL!
[Greed] And then I will give you 75% of the royalties! FAIL!
[Wrath] If you don't send that to me, I will call my buddy at the RIAA and have you sued for every penny you have! FAIL!
[Lust] I will give you my sister in return! FAIL!
[Gluttony] I'll send you a cake! FAIL!
[Pride] It's a great remix, you should be proud! FAIL!
[Sloth] I'll make it all good, you won't have to do a thing! FAIL!

  Approval failed on initial responses. Searching additional databanks...

[Agressive guilt trip] It's the least you can do for ruining my fine song like that! FAIL!
[Indifference gambit] I don't really care if you send it. Do whatever. FAIL!
[Sad game] I will be really sad if you don't! ;( FAIL!
[Offensive jerk] Fark you! Do as I say (and not as I do) you little maggot! FAIL!
[Appeal to religious beliefs] You will burn in hell if you don't. FAIL!
[Physical threat combined with personal knowledge obtained from googling] We know where you live. We don't care that you did a poster with Machinae Supremacy. We'll come over and bust your kneecaps! FAIL!
[Calm insecurites over shoddy remix and apply respectful curtesy] You can send me the combined and the non-combined version too and I'll just have one listen to the non-combined version. I'm not a very judgemental person; I make chiptunes for gods sake! :D I just wanna have a quick listen, youtube quality is a bit lacking sometimes. We're all in it for the fun anyway, you know? :D Please? Approved!

  Response program terminated.

... Well, then. Any of those would've worked. I dunno, I think you DO know where I live, seeing as how I bought your stuff and all. Paypal would know, at the very least.

I'll throw you a mail with a few versions.

Thanks! Btw: The cake was a lie. If you wanna make a full remix, I'd love to hear it! :D

I keep telling people I'm not a musician, but that seems to become more and more untrue as time goes on... I'd love to give Positive Force a fair remix, even if anything I do to it could only make it worse. The problem is that it's way too multilayered for me to manage a proper remix by ear! I always start my remixing (not counting this case) by picking things apart and replicating them as closely as I can, before I go about improving or changing anything. That's very easy to do with my usual victims, like this one below...


Because when it comes to actually old game music, the emulators required to play it back always come with handy-dandy built-in mixers that let me export each channel seperately so I can duplicate everything in the cheesiest, most non-artistic way possible! "Faithfulness".

I like how this thread turned into a discussion about my remixes.

In my experience you are what you regularly do, and not what you say you are. And if you need to "be" something before you do it, then nobody would ever become anything.

Now that's the way VVVVVV should be done in 3D. I want to see this happen.
