License?
« on: January 17, 2010, 07:46:42 pm »
Just wondering, I don't recall seeing any license in the installer. What sort of license is governing VVVVVV?

I install and play on my main computer with the keyboard, but I'm also building a dedicated computer-based game cabinet and I would love to put it in there. Would I be allowed to install it on both machines? If yes, then what's the limit? I'll probably keep it on my main computer since that's where I've got all the unlocked stuff and my records, and the game cabinet one would be more for guests to play around with it. It makes sense not to pass it around to all my friends but if there was less ambiguity to how I'm allowed to use it in my household...

In my opinion it's ok to have it installed on both your machines in your household.

Sans DRM, everything's free to go by a "intent of the law" mentality.  Hopefully if you're playing the game on your computer, you've bought it.  Beyond that, there aren't any arbitrary restrictions, which is really nice.

A friend of mine without internet (don't ask why) is considering buying the game, in which case I'd copy the .app to a flash drive for her, then donate 15 dollars to Terry.

Yeah, I thought it'd be ok but I wanted to check first. Terry doesn't strike me as the kind of guy who'd split hairs on that sort of thing, but, I'm probably just still feelinging guilty from the leaked beta.

So far the machine is "under construction" but I made the mistake of hooking up the control panel to a computer so now it's technically playable which means it'll probably be quite a while. I'm concerned the 8-way joysticks would be too loose since a slight twitch on the vertical will make a flip, I think I can figure out a way to constrain it to the left/right which works out because I learned to play using the toggle anyway.  :viridian:
