Outer Space

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.

[VVVVVV: Make and Play Edition]

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]


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:

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!


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!

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

  2. woolyninja on June 22nd, 2014

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

  3. 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.

  4. @MrJosh9000 on June 23rd, 2014

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

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

  9. Vulpix on July 6th, 2014

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

  11. 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 πŸ™‚

  12. Pierce a burbank on January 9th, 2015

    Very, VERY Cool Editer

  16. EThan on June 1st, 2015

    Use it every day!

  17. X7 on July 7th, 2015

    So, what? It’s just VVVVVV without the game
    Just the editor. (The editor is way, Way, WAY better, though the game is fun itself sometimes)

    Trojan Virus

  19. Terry on October 4th, 2015

    To the guy who posted as someone secret: Your comment had me worried for a second that I’d been hacked, so I just did a md5 checksum on the files to make sure they’re the same as the ones I uploaded last year – and they are! I’m guess you got a warning from some virus scanner or your browser? It’s just a false positive – unfortunately, thanks to modern paranoid browsers, they’re pretty common with files that are downloaded off the internet these days.

    For future reference, the original uploaded files have the following md5sums:

    Windows: 5d5c97708313d3982888411c5d7370c1
    OSX: bdaec18cb3c5720597ee28cc5cbc1801
    Linux: 6572632b21a3aaddf1c952aa02f81ea0

    edit: these have been updated since this comment, so these md5sums are no longer correct

    I Put The Editor On My Windows PC And My Mac…Now I Just Need It On Lunix!

  22. TheBurgessNebula on December 23rd, 2015

    I Could Make A Level With VVVVVV…

  23. CreationVerse on December 30th, 2015

    YES!! A way to make my own VVVVVV levels! Now I don’t even know how old this game is, but I sure don’t care, along with others. πŸ™‚

  24. Caden on January 11th, 2016

    I feel the same way CreationVerse feels- VVVVVV is awesome, despite being from 2010. I still play it to this day!

  25. Mario&Luigi VS. Koopa on January 31st, 2016

    VVVVVV should be free, everyone! Who’s with me?!

  26. Caden on February 9th, 2016

    No, “Mario&Luigi VS. Koopa”, Terry has to make money somehow.

  27. Linh on March 1st, 2016

    I Say This Zip Is Unknown Or Damage

  28. Mario&Luigi VS. Koopa on June 6th, 2016

    You didn’t REALLY have to pay for VVVVVV. Terry is just a greedy man. And he even made it harder with the Veni Vidi Vici! Still his fan? Then hear Souleye say “Terry is a monster” in his song, Waiting for VVVVVV. So, Undertale by Toby Fox character confirmed.

  29. Mario&Luigi VS. Koopa on June 6th, 2016

    Hello? Anyone there?

    Make and Play version got a minor update on 21st Oct 2016, adding proper integer scaling. Updated MD5SUMs are in the blog post!

  32. AwesomeGamer2223 on November 13th, 2016

    Umm, I can’t build any walls. Can someone please help?



  33. X7 on January 5th, 2017

    I know I can be annoying, but downloading levels
    NEVER works for me! I tried everything! Please help! (I am so sorry if I sound annoying right now)

  34. Joshua Rolfe on July 2nd, 2017

    I love this game! Its the best frustrating game out there!

  35. John Cranfield on November 22nd, 2017

    I know that this is an old post, so I apologize in advance for resurrecting it. However if reinstalling the program didn’t help you can searched the internet for the file, downloaded the missing MSVCR100.dll file and copied the new one into your Windows. If the folder already contained a copy of the .dll file you had to overwrite it with the new copy. The fix should took effect immediately and you could game without problems and without the need of a system restart. Though restarting is always a good idea after making changes in Windows systems. Here’s a link https://fix4dll.com/msvcr100_dll to the mfc100.dll

    Hello, I downloaded the VVVVVV make and play, but whenever I try to save my project to continue later I can not load it, it only shows that it loaded but it stays on the screen empty as if I had not yet started to build the phases. what to do?
    I’m using windows 10

  37. Italyboi37 on June 6th, 2018

    It does not download on Windows 10. It says that something called mscvp100.dll mscvp140.dll is missing. Please help. Thanks!

  38. k on March 18th, 2019

    please add achievements in android version

  39. VVVVVV Master on April 6th, 2019

    VVVVVV Is V best thing ever 😍! (L.O.L.)

  40. Egor on January 12th, 2020

    Downloaded file for Windows
    has MD5 sum b6f06d8134bce35fd5c6fd5ee0bdef1d which doesn’t match to the sum listed on this page.

  41. Terry on January 13th, 2020

    @egor: I’ll ask Ethan about this! Hold tight.

  42. Terry on January 13th, 2020

    Ok, I’ve sorted that out! The wrong MD5 sum was a dumb error on my part (I forgot to update it when I updated the files). Thank you for letting me know!

  43. Tha Cuber on September 13th, 2020
