Everything else / The Binding of Isaac

Anyone else play this?

Apart from VVVVVV... to me it's the best game ever. I paid all of $5 for it on steam, and from last year until now I've put in about 200 hours... which is more than many games I've paid $30-50 for.

Indie games are the best things ever

VVVVVV Tech Support / Direct Mode

I saw some people talking about it... so what is it, exactly?

It apparently has something to do with the level editing... and after spending about 50 hours in the level editor without it, I'm curious as to what it is (I'm still in 2.0 though, since I'm on a mac, so I don't think I'd be able to use it, by the looks of it... I just want to know what it does)

VVVVVV Levels / In Pursuing Design
« on: May 09, 2012, 11:42:44 am »
Hi, so this is my first of (hopefully) many levels.

I've been noticing that a bunch of the custom levels (or at least the ones that come with the game, since I haven't downloaded any from the forums yet) are insanely difficult, and that's basically the focus of the level... to be hard, which is frustrating for me, since I'm not the best VVVVVV player around. Because of this, I thought I'd do something different... where the level would be based off puzzles, secrets, and storyline, rather than difficult room after difficult room.

This level, especially the last half, is based heavily on a story I put together about something called The Hollow, which you can find out more about in the level itself. However, just beating the level won't get you the entire story, for there is a secret ending (*insert fanfare here*) in addition to the normal one (which is depressing, really, so I suggest going for the secret one). However, in order to unlock the secret ending, as well as bonus dialogues and backstory, you'll have to be thorough... but as long as you check everything and get all the tokens, you should be fine (as if that's an easy task).

So yeah, why should you play this level? Because it's interesting, it has a cool story, and it has two endings, as well as multiple secret dialogues scattered around (if you see a terminal that says something different, but nothing important, then there's a good chance you missed one). Oh, and did I mention the SoulEye music? Having more time to listen to that should be enough reason to download every custom level on the forums (just sayin).

I hope you enjoy the level, and I'd like feedback, especially if there's something that needs to be fixed. This level was made for 2.1, but it should still work fine in 2.0, as that's what I'm using.

Also, if you need some clues to getting the secret ending, feel free to ask. There are 2-3 trinkets that are hard to find/require some puzzle-ish fun stuff.

The level took me a little over an hour to 100% (I had to test it), so I'd say it will take anywhere between thirty minutes to one hour to complete, and anywhere between an hour and two hours to get everything. So yeah, it's kinda long. The worst part is that to get the secret ending, you'll have to backtrack a few times, meaning you might have to pass through certain areas multiple times in order to complete the level.

EDIT: Oh, and here's some hints in advance, since I know they'll confuse people (You have to highlight, just so it's not ruined for anyone else. Only use if you're really stuck! More will be added if people ask):

The Perturbed Rooms:
>>This shouldn't have been too hard, but Bottom Left Warp, Top Right, Top Right<<

The Labyrinth:
>>It was originally a lot harder, but I added in that terminal for you. If that wasn't enough, its the left warp in the second room, and then the bottom exit in the third. The trinket is to the left of the second room.<<

Doubt Puzzle:
>>Did you read the terminals at the 'A Revelation' room?<<

How to get past the right side of the Lost Tree room:
>>You have to get Karen, the computer in the Control room, to help ya. To do that, however, you need to go back and talk to her before continuing after you rescue your first crewmate (aka your dead body).<<


Temporarily having problems (?) with uploading the newest fix, so use this mediafire link:

Sorry for the extra trouble, idk what happened, really. Hopefully will not be this way with the next fix

VVVVVV Tech Support / destroy(platforms)

Does it work in the newest version? I'm still in 2.0, but I wanted to use it for aesthetic purposes in a level I am currently working on (it's been like 20 hours of work so far, so I'm hoping it's actually decent), as the disappearing platforms seem to stop enemies when gravity lines and warp tokens dont.

also, unrelated, but what would I type if I wanted violet to speak?

The game itself only took me a few hours to beat, but I'm REALLY liking this level editor. The possibilities are endless, really. I know this forum is kinda dead, but I'm hoping to get at least 2 or 3 levels up in the near future
