VVVVVV being demade… to the C64!

Wow.

Indie-hit VVVVVV (err, that’s 6 x ‘V’, not 3 x ‘W’, if you were wondering) is now being demade from it’s original PC platform, to the Commodore 64.

Matching the sound/graphics of the original won’t be too hard; but getting the item placement and controls right… will be crucial.

There’s already a demo available, so fire up your favourite C64 emulator, and get playing!

By the way the original game is STILL available for just US$5, from the author’s site. I’m about 40% through it, and it’s great fun.

    This is a truly excellent idea. I really got to try it. Thanks for the tip!

    Thanks Gnome. I’m currently stuck in the ‘escort mission’ part of the original game. URGH!!!!

    Played the C64 version last night and it’s great!

    Wow indeed!

    I would love to play this on the real hardware (In fact I think I have my friends C64 in the loft – he’s in Korea, he’ll never know).

    I can see why you would want to play it on an actual C64, but if you can already get a modern PC version of the game, why in the hell would you then wrap it in a C64 emulator? There’s meaningful nostalgia, and then there’s asinine nostalgia.

      Well Halifax, in my case I just don’t have a C64 here where I live. (Only one several hours plane flight away, at my mother’s home) So – I’d like to check out the C64 VVVVVV – and the only way I can is via emulation. It’s not that I want to play the original via ‘layers of emulation’ (a la ‘lets emulate Doom in Minecraft in Virtual Windows on a Mac’) – it’s just that I’d like to see how close they managed to get the VVVVVV demake in the ‘feel’ department to Terry’s original.

    Good news. Seems the VVVVVV C64 version is going well. The laboratory level is finished, and the overworld, almost. The music converter is still working on the tunes. That’s all.
