Over on Twitter, @CarsonKompon has shared a look at their recreation of VVVVVV, a 2D platformer developed by Terry Cavanagh that launched on Switch back in 2017. Amazingly, the project looks almost identical to the original game; the layout is instantly familiar if you’ve played VVVVVV yourself, and the custom sprites and music put the cherry on the cake. Check it out:
If you haven’t played VVVVVV, let us show you what we’re on about. Here’s the opening of the real game – you’ll spot that pretty much everything other than the text boxes is complete and present.
Oh, and don’t just take our word for it – even the original game’s creator seems impressed:
Consider this one well and truly added to our list of favourite creation so far, which already includes an F-Zero recreation, Masahiro Sakurai’s shooter game, a cool version of Super Mario Kart, and a recreation of Zelda: Ocarina of Time’s 1996 prototype. People are too talented.
