You! Yes, you there! With the bowler hat and the suitcase leaning against a lamp post sipping a fine cup of delicious Yorkshire tea. Have you played VVVVVV yet? No? Why not? Because you’re a bad person? Yes, that must be it. In fact right here it says you’re a terrible person. And we weren’t even testing for that.
If you’ve yet to play VVVVVV despite the lure of delicious indie gaming goodness and even a Steam summer discount, then you literally no longer have any excuses. Today marks the return of the Humble Indie Bundle, the stupendously fantastical collection of cheap (or expensive! Pay what you like!) indie games ready for download straight through your interweb pipes and onto your swelling hard drives. Amongst the latest humble lineup is of course VVVVVV, the hard as nails platformer from Terry Cavanagh and scored by Magnus Pålsson (really, the soundtrack is excellent). As if the adorable yet excruciatingly difficult adventures of Captain Viridian weren’t enough to tempt you to part with your cash in the name of awesome games and charity, the humble folk are also throwing in Crayon Physics Deluxe, Cogs, And Yet It Moves and Hammerfight. That’s 5 awesome indie games (including one about Crayons! Fucking crayons!) for as much as you’re willing to pay to support great games and worthy causes.
Go forth and be generous.
