The Elephant Secret... Revealed!
« on: August 06, 2011, 10:38:35 pm »
I poked around a little bit and found a Wikipedia Article on VVVVVV. And inside, I found this little snippet:

Quote
The visual style of VVVVVV is heavily inspired by games released for the Commodore 64 8-bit computer from the 1980s, especially Jet Set Willy which is referenced by the giant elephant...

Now, this is just a joke! The reason as to why Viridian's crew would have a giant elephant stored on their ship is beyond me.

The elephant isn't on their ship. Their ship is only the area where Violet is, the trinket room, the music room, the teleporter room, and the exit where Vermillion is usually at. The rest of the world you explore is the VVVVVV dimension.

I've seen something far more mysterious, but I don't remember what it's called. I can't even remember the name of the game it's in, lol.

Anyone played La-Mulana?  That game has a fair share of... disturbing mystery things that don't make sense...

Jet Set Willy? I googled it and found a picture of the giant elephant:
