Super Hexagon / Super Hexagon Stream - Hyper Hexagonest
« on: April 21, 2013, 12:40:07 pm »

If you have any spare time, feel free to check out my Super Hexagon stream! I'm currently trying to get a new record in Hyper Hexagonest. The stream is going to be up periodically, but not on a fixed schedule.

Currently, sound is switched off, since I'm on Skype with someone. But usually, I have sound turned on (and talk while playing). ^^

Super Hexagon / Proposed Gamemode - The Hexagon Challenge
« on: November 10, 2012, 07:44:29 pm »
I feel like this game, being very competitive in its nature, needs to have something like the No Death Mode VVVVVV had.
So here what I've been thinking: The Hexagon Challenge.
Basically, it's a complete run of all six gamemodes with more and more increasing difficulty. You start out at Hexagon, let's call it the Point stage, and your goal is to survive 60 seconds. Then, the game congratulates you and sends you to the Line stage, Hexagoner, where you have to survive for 120 seconds. Note that it'll be Hexagoner for the full 120 seconds, so the change to Hyper Hexagoner after 60 does not occur.
Next on the docket is the Triangle stage, Hexagonest, with a required survival time of 180 seconds. And so on.
The ultimate challenge, of course, would be the Hexagon stage, as it would require the player to survive for 360 seconds, six minutes, on Hyper Hexagonest. And whoever beats that stage gets direct access to The Final Hexagon (come on! :viridian:).

EDIT: Oh, and every time you die, you have to start over from Point, of course. Just like No Death Mode.  :vermillion:

So, what do you think?

Super Hexagon / Map of Hexagons

This is a map of paths to the dreaded Final Hexagon.

(click to enlarge)

Each full line stands for 60 seconds of survival. Rule of thumb: the harder it gets, the faster you get there - to lose. The Final Hexagon does not know any survival; once you're there, the only way out is Death itself.  :vermillion:

Super Hexagon / Hexagonest 3D
« on: October 01, 2012, 12:59:25 am »
Is there any reason to why Hexagonest (and Hyper Hexagonest) doesn't get the cool 3D effects like Hexagoner and Hexagon do?  :vitellary:

You can buy it here, at Chipzel's Bandcamp page.

For everyone who finds the music just as damn catchy as I do!

VVVVVV Levels / [5x5] Exponential Decay
« on: September 25, 2011, 01:36:32 am »
A quantity is said to be subject to exponential decay if it decreases at a rate proportional to its value.

25 rooms in 5 areas. You start in the hardest area and work your way through to the easiest area. In other words, the level gets easier the farther you get.

Also, no excessive scripting, no plot.

Have fun and feel free to criticize.

VVVVVV / DDDDDDance - Pushing Onwards Dance Remix (WIP)
« on: September 20, 2011, 09:41:29 pm »
I'm currently working on a Pushing Onwards Dance Remix, called DDDDDDance.  :viridian:
It's still WIP, so the preview cuts off pretty sudden at the end, but tell me what you think of it so far!
Here's the SoundCloud link, I'll be providing a MP3 version of it as soon as the final version is done.

Constructive Criticism is always welcome!

VVVVVV / Suggestion: Proper Scripting Engine
« on: September 16, 2011, 12:25:38 am »
Hi there,
the level editor feature in VVVVVV is, no doubt, really great. However, there's one thing that has been annoying me for quite some while now, and it's the current way of implementing scripts into a level.
To be honest; it's a mess. While, momentarily, it's easily enough to pull some fun tricks with the editor, I can't stop to think about how a "proper" scripting engine would improve both usability and flexibility of scripting.
Take Amnesia: The Dark Descent for an example. They use the AngelScript library for level scripting, and it's darn mighty. You can basically pull everything off in a custom story what the main developers pulled off in the main game, and even more. There's a fair deal of predefined functions which you can use, and combining them to try stuff out is pretty fun.

But of course I'm not suggesting to switch to AngelScript. The current VVVVVV scripting would also be just fine, if we were able to use loops, conditional statements (if-then-else), switches and variables. That would add a huge load of flexibility and functionality to scripting and experienced scripters would be able to do so much more while "regular" scripters could still choose to use the old syntax - it's a win-win situation. It would also turn creating one-time-scripts into a trivial task.

I don't know what's planned for the future regarding scripting, but just these changes I mentioned would make me the most happy level creator in the uniVVVVVVerse.  ;D

EDIT: Oh, and instead of having to place special entities to create a script, a simple button to do so would save the hassle of creating such an entity, filling the script with commands, then deleting it again. It'd also be nice to have an "OnStart" function predefined so we can make stuff happen the moment the level starts without having to place a script area around the player spawn.
