VVVVVV Levels / The Last Question [v1.1]
« on: November 10, 2020, 01:54:30 am »

Download Level
Listen to Soundtrack: Bandcamp ||| YouTube

A simple five-dollar bet gets drastically out of hand.

This level is a loose adaptation of "The Last Question", a short story written by Isaac Asimov.
Also featuring a little bit of art by mothbeanie!

Code: [Select]
* Initial contest release

* Initial dware release
* Reorganized zip file so you can just put it directly in the levels folder in 2.3+
* Changed the level description from listing contest phrases to something more descriptive
* Tweaked some tiles used in the final cutscene
* Added death sprites
* Added a small secret

Hey, I'm trying to post a new level in the VVVVVV Levels board, but it's telling me that the message body was left empty even though it wasn't? I tried disabling ublock, which didn't accomplish anything. Is anyone else running into this problem? (Also weird is that it let me post this here, but for some reason posting that in VVVVVV Levels wouldn't work)

I should stress that the above scenario predates COVID-19!  I originally wanted to release the level on the 20th anniversary of my father's death (that would be January 2019) but... just sort of ran out of steam.
I feel your pain, the next big level im working on has stuff i wrote last year that ended up being accidental commentary on quarantine and blm protests

left and right spikes! they actually have a larger hitbox (the full 8x8) whereas up and down spikes are only 8x4, so left and right spikes are more effective
yeah well maybe the up and down spikes being more forgiving is good!!! why do you like killing people so much, HUH????

i think the fancy stuff should be allowed, since this is gonna be exposed to lots of people who don't normally follow custom levels and it'd be fun to show off what's possible

speaking of which, if you're new to custom levels (or haven't participated in a long time) and wanna try making something, Dav999's external editor is a lot more stable and fully featured than the built in editor so it's a nice tool to have:

Are you worried that your levels aren't good enough? Well, worry no longer! This handy level will teach you all the do's and don'ts of making great VVVVVV levels!
There definitely isn't a weird twist to it at all.

VVVVVV Levels / Re: Thoughts on Back to VVVVVV

overdose was i think the first finished released level to have custom music, but others had used custom graphics before. still, the egotistical part of me thinks that overdose was a trendsetter for the modern era of asset-heavy high-concept stuff, though it's in no way an upgrade from dim open. also overdose is bad, but then again back to vvvvvv is also kinda bad yet it's still very influential and important for its time

also although tolp2 was never completed, it's still interesting to look at as a sort of missing link between the back to vvvvvv/dimension open trend of Really Big IS Levels and the more recent stuff

you can do whatever you want, it's not up to us if you want to leave or not! do whatever you think is right!

also, if it turns out you don't want to post here anymore, you can just, stop, without announcing it. which puts a lot less pressure on you. also, as a bonus, it means if you later decide to come back you can without it being weird
