Silliness
« on: January 12, 2011, 02:55:51 PM »
So while out on a walk earlier I had a thought; I should make a whole series of games called after the various phonetic spellings of VVVVVV - I'd call one "VeeVeeVeeVeeVeeVee", another "VuhVuhVuhVuhVuhVuh", another "Six Vs", another "the letter V six times", another "Veeeeeeee", and so on.

This would make it almost impossible to indicate what game you were talking about in conversation.

But what about an elongated buzzing "vvvvvv" sound ([vː] for all you IPA enthusiasts)? That's one possible pronunciation of VVVVVV that can't be expressed with a phonetic spelling of anything but iterated V's, but that's already the name of the original.

Still, it would be funny to hear everybody forced to pronounce the original that way. "I was playing VVVVVV the other day ..."

In 2024, Terry will release a sequel to VVVVVV, called MMXXIV, starring Max, Michelle, Xavier, Ximena, Indigo and Viridian.

Of course you'd get ideas like that, you crazy person.



I recently suggested that EA rename their coming "Battlefield Play4Free" into just plain "Battlefield Free" so it'd be really confusing when Battlefield 3 comes out, but that's another story...

Terry, I don't care what you name your sequels, as long as you make them! ;D

I once considered making a prequel. Still might someday.

Also:

We could just call them V1, V2, V3, V4, V5, etc.

Unless, of course, you made a game officially called V6, and it wasn't the 6th game. Hahaha.

I don't like the name V6 primarily because there's a chewing gum with that name here in Sweden. Other than that, I like it lots! :)
Just adding/removing V's from VVVVVV would probably do the trick as well, wouldn't it? Only Notch has already made VVVV.

Then we'd just call V "V1," VV "V2," VVVVVV "V6," etc. V4 would then be Notch's game.

Perhaps you could take advantage of the fact that a W looks like two V's?  I'm sure there's a website joke in there somewhere a la WWW.yougettheidea.com

Clearly, in that case, WWW.thegame.com would be the way to go.

Didn't want to start a whole new topic just to say this. 

I like to call it Sextuple V.  :D  Without a breath between "ple" and "V."  Haha.
