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.

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:

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!

  1. Nevermind – I figured it out finally on a Mac.
    Needed to put it in the ~/Library/Application Support/VVVVVV folder.

  2. I love this game! Beat it on 3DS 2 times. Its a short but awesome game!!! Downloading Make And Play now!! πŸ˜€

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

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

  5. 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™‚

  6. 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)

    1. 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

  7. 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™‚

  8. 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.

  9. 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)

  10. 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

  11. 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

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

  13. 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!

  14. Whenever I try to open the application (vvvvvv.exe), it says that “The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b).” Do you know what is going on and how to fix this error?
