    Nicalis To Publish Terry Cavanagh’s VVVVVV on 3DS eShop

    October 6th, 2011 – Nicalis, Inc., developer and publisher of independently awesome video games is VVVVVVery excited to announce a publishing agreement with Terry Cavanagh for VVVVVV on the Nintendo 3DS eShop. VVVVVV features the same amazingly retro gameplay, aesthetic and chiptune music (by Swedish musician, Magnus Pålsson), but now in 3D and on the go with your 3DS. Attendees of Indiecade in Culver City, California can play a near-complete preview VVVVVVersion for the first time on 3DS! Just find Terry Cavanagh or Tyrone Rodriguez and ask them to play!

    Released in late 2010 for PC, VVVVVV is a 2D action-platformer deeply rooted in the days of 8-bit gaming with incredibly challenging gameplay and secrets. In VVVVVV, you play as Captain Viridian, who must not only save a dimension on the brink of collapse, but also find your ship’s crew–all of whose names begin with the letter V.

    Now 3DS owners can experience the critically acclaimed game in 3D, anywhere. When asked for an obligatory quote, Terry Cavanagh said, “I’m VVVVVVery excited about it! This is the first time anything I’ve made has been on a console.”

    VVVVVV 3DS Features:
    Open-world environment with six unique levels
    20 Trinkets to locate and collect
    Full 3D awesomeness integrated into the retro-looking art style
    - Dual screen functionality with a real-time map!
    - Music by Magnus Pålsson
    - New Featured Levels
    - Future content updates [/p]

    I've been pleasantly surprised by the sort of indie upcomings in the past decade of games, it's a really nice fresh bit of air. I hope it keeps up.

    They say it's almost done? Hopefully that means we'll be getting it soon. We should be getting Zen Pinball really soon - a magazine already reviewed it and Zen Studios said it'd be coming out this month. I can't wait to finally put some of my cash to use. Hopefully this opens the door for some other titles to come.

    I hope it's cheap. I've already played through the PC version, but this game belongs on a handheld.

    Do want.

    The realtime map probably makes it easier.

    I loved the PC version so I'll definitely get this one. I hope they add quite a bit of extra content to make it interesting though. The (Mostly) direct port of Cave Story to DSi was a bit disappointing.

    One of my favorite indie games, so happy that this is making it's way to 3DS.

    I plan on picking it up, but I really hope it's not overpriced.
