Doing Things The Hard Way by Quanyails Doing Things The Hard Way by Quanyails
The 'The' in the title properly capitalized, as according to the game itself.

More fanart of VVVVVV; since version 2.0 came out and I played with it, and listened to Magnus Pålsson's new tracks. Must say I was pleased playing it again, even if the extra player-made levels were difficult. :P

I decided to sketch up a roughly isometric, slightly more shaded depiction of one of the most infamous areas in the main game. Anyone who's played the game knows why this is exceptionally annoying.

I tried to keep the color ascetic as according to VVVVVV; I added only one extra shade not present in the game.

VVVVVV belongs to Terry Cavanagh.

This place feels overrated. I don't remember having that much trouble with this part. But hey, I've beaten The Kid's Warp Zone in Super Meat Boy on keyboard so... :3

I don't think "exceptionally annoying" describes it xD
But anyway, this looks really good! I specially like the checkpint :P

Haha oh man I almost died simply from seeing what that task actually involved. I have yet to actually get that trinket ): The look on Viridian's face in this picture says it all xD Anyway, this is awesome. I love the way you 3-Dimentionalised the checkpoint, and the way you coloured/shaded the trinket.

It becomes muscle memory after the first few hundred tries. XD But, yes, I was intimidated, yet determined, to get that trinket. The checkpoint was okay to make three-dimensional, but the trinket was kinda hard to make three-dimensional, since it looked like three spheres inside of one another to me. So I had to apply some odd shading to make it look so.

Thanks for the compliment!

I know what you mean XD Even some of the less difficult of the levels seem to have engrained themselves in my brain...

You're welcome! :D

Our bitter tears were delicious. That took up 50% of my deaths, no joke.

I don't even remember how many tries it took me to get that thing, but I didn't give up and it felt soooooo good when I finally landed on the other side of that waist-high block. :D

Congratulations; there's something about VVVVVV that compels you to continue, doesn't it? Most likely, the music.

Oh gosh, it's THAT.

I spend forever figuring trying to do that, and I came really close a few times, to the point where I kept dying only a couple of screens up on the way back down.

I gave up after a while and decided to move on with the game, but I plan to go back and get this done at some point...

It simplifies to muscle memory after a hundred or so tries. Map it out in your head and stuff.

Feel how I must have felt, being a completionist the first time through. XD

Daaaaw, keep trying! You get the hang of it... after about 500 deaths. X.x

At least it isn't like the challenge levels. There's one where you have to scroll through like 14 screens or something. :O

Isometric? More like oblique! That has no influence on how much I like this, though.
