VVVVVV creator Terry Cavanagh is bringing his beloved retro platforming adventure to iOS, Android, Vita and Ouya in 2014.Cavanagh calls VVVVVV his 'Final Fantasy.' Now let's hope he doesn't blow all his money on a movie about it.
The indie developer teased the idea of a mobile port in October when he released his Orpheus-themed experiment Don't Look Back on iOS and Android as a sort of "trial run" to see how it would feel on the touch screen. Apparently he was pleased with it, because he decided to pursue that VVVVVV mobile port after all."I've had an incomplete iOS version of the game working for over a year now, but other projects have kept me from finishing it up. I'd really like to get that out soon, though," Cavanagh said on his blog. "Over Christmas I spent a little time finishing up the port, and I'm happy to say that the really hard stuff is done, now. I just need a week or two to sort out the details.""This year, I'm going to release VVVVVV on PS Vita, on iPad, on iPhone, on Android, on Ouya. And, if I can manage it, all at the same time," he added. "This will very likely be the last thing I ever do with VVVVVV, and I wanna go out with a bang!"We were big fans of VVVVVV here at Eurogamer, with both Oli Welsh and I speaking highly of it in our respective PC and 3DS reviews. "VVVVVV provides more moment to moment pleasure in its scant two or three hour campaign than most games do at four times the length," I wrote of the minimalist adventure.
