Title: Calculator Simulator
Post by: Quote on August 03, 2016, 07:15:27 pm
Hi.
So I made a thing called Calculator Simulator, a tool that emulates the same basic functions of a calculator.  Except it's in VVVVVV now!
Really, the whole thing is kinda pointless, but you can check it out if you want.
Here are some screenshots:

Also, this is my first... errr... "level", if you could call it that.  Maybe I'll make a real level sometime, I dunno...
Have fun! :viridian:

Hmm...
I think I might be able to create a much more complex version of this, but it would take some time... I've only just now got back on track with terminality...
Nevertheless, this is still a decent concept.

Yeah, maybe I'll work on an update or something.  It's pretty basic right now, but I'll try to improve it.
I don't really know what I should add tho  :verdigris:

i already know how a complex version would be pretty much exactly laid out
it's just that would it work or not
but for a start i'd add more numbers
1-9 is a decent amount, and maybe 0 if you can implement some e#r0r m3s5@ge for you know what

I'm so happy you've taken interest in this!  :viridian: :viridian:

Because who needs level design, who needs challenge, who needs story? When you can have a calculator simulator!
Truly the magnum opus of VVVVVV levels. [/sarcasm]
(Wow, sarcasm in the first post against someone. Good start. [/sarcasm])

Aww, thanks!
I know it's not great, but I'm trying to improve in any way I can!

This is a pretty neat little experiment!

So you're just inventing reasons to be a jerk to people now?

Thank you!  Really how I came up with this whole thing is thinking "what's something you'd never expect in a game like VVVVVV that no one's ever tried to do".  The whole calculator concept is a little (a lot) silly, but that's the whole point!  I had fun making it, and that's all that really matters to me (not saying I didn't put effort into it, I made the whole thing before I even knew VED existed lol). :viridian:
