Super Hexagon and VVVVVV developer working on a puzzle game

This hardened gamer still has literal nightmares about that VVVVVV level where you hop along the undersides of wildly ping-ponging platforms while trying not to fall into a pit of spikes—you know, that level. And let's not even talk about how quickly my fat fingers fail at the psychedelic Super Hexagon. Terry Cavanagh's notorious for laying out challenges of immense difficulty—what will happen when he sinks his hands into the puzzle genre? We'll be finding out soon.


Super Hexagon hitting Steam next week, get your swear jars at the ready

If you own an iWhatsit, then there's a good chance you've spent the last two months trying to beat Terry Cavanagh at his own game (his own game being the minimalist reflex test known as Super Hexagon). However, if you don't own an iWhatsit, you'll have had to make do with the original flash game, a clone, or watching the inside of a tumble dryer - until now. Cavanagh has just announced that Super Hexagon is coming to Steam next week.


VVVVVV is on Steam for cheaps

Terry Cavanagh's gravity abusing platformer VVVVVV is now available on Steam for £3.59/$4.49. I gave it 86% in PCG UK 211. If you have any love of platforming puzzlers at all, you'd be a fool to pass it up for pocket change like this.
