Title: VVVVVVX (It's a thing I made)
Post by: Rox on October 04, 2010, 05:45:42 am
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...

Wow! That's amazing! :viridian:
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!

... 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...

(http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1098605/psychofox_thumbnail.png) (http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1098605/Rox%20-%20Mystical%20Mountains%20-Pure%20Wild%20Pockly%20Guy%20Style-.mp3)
Click for music! (http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1098605/Rox%20-%20Mystical%20Mountains%20-Pure%20Wild%20Pockly%20Guy%20Style-.mp3)

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.

Come on. I do not want version 2 to look like that! It was just a joke (maybe I should've used a different smiley)
I want VVVVVV to stay a 2D platformer as it was. I wanna see that Proto world level and an editor!  :viridian:

My God, that is so amazing, my 3D VVVVVV remake, renamed to 3V, is still a work in progress, but the engine I'm using is so limited to what I can do, you're going to do an amazing job with this, good luck!

Oh, it's actually just a video.  Not a game in production.
Title: Re: VVVVVVX (It's a thing I made)
Post by: Rox on October 19, 2010, 04:30:45 pm
Haha, yeah. It's just an animation, that's all. If it was an actual game, it would be a terrible one, looking at the amazing level design I've got going there...

[edit]
Holy crap, what happened?! I noticed an insane spike in views on that video, and investigated where the hits were coming from.

Apparently...

As evidenced by the video getting some 10,000 hits in less than 12 hours! Great, now the whole Internet calls me "Roxfox". Stupid ancient username...

But hey, at least this makes one thing pretty clear. People still totally dig VVVVVV! (So there's definitely a market for a v 2.0, Terry!) Several persons have claimed that they would pay much money for a 3D remake. Some jerk even complimented my remix of Positive Force, too...

Man... Peer pressure's turning a silly idea into something I'd actually consider making, and playing... If anyone wants to make a thing like that happen for real, I'm so in... CooL, you need to keep me informed on your progress on the thing you're making! If that turns out good, I want to help!

If someone mods this for Team Fortress 2, that would be funny. Watching BLU Heavies and BLU Medics flip to the ceiling to take out a RED Sentry Gun on the ground.

I hate to tell you this, but it was just a mockup, and I have honestly no idea if Rox has ever thought more about making it into an actual game.

I have. Oh, how I have. It's a bit of a pipe dream of mine. I'm not sure when I'll be able to work toward actually making it happen, but I do hope I can, at some point...
