Humble Bundle III: VVVVVV

July 27th, 2011 by Crusader

So, I’ve gotten a bit of a chance to play VVVVVV, one of the five games in the current Humble Indie Bundle.

This is the premiere of the Linux edition, although there’s a bit of history here, as a port was first attempted over a year ago. This time around, there’s new levels (including one by Notch) and a new level editor (tutorial)!

The game itself is a fun, twitch-action, platformer, with mechanics that remind me of Gravity Man, and a fun, irreverent sci-fi script. Once you beat it, there are additional user-made levels being posted in the forums. I can’t wait to put more time in with it; moreover, there are soundtracks available!

Finally, the version 2.01 patch was released with a 64-bit library fix.
