VVVVVV (pronounced as the letter V six times, "Vee", "Vs", or "V-6") is a 2010 2D puzzle platform video game designed by Terry Cavanagh and scored by Magnus Pålsson. The game was built in Adobe Flash and released on January 11, 2010, for Microsoft Windows and OS X. The game was ported to C++ by Simon Roth in 2011, and released as part of the Humble Indie Bundle #3. The port to C++ allowed the release of a previously cancelled version of VVVVVV for Linux. A version for the Nintendo 3DS has been released and also a binary port[7] is being made for the Open Pandora which will require the data files from the Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X or Linux version of the game to work. In VVVVVV, the player controls Captain Viridian, who is lost in an alternative dimension, in search of the other five missing members of the spaceship's crew, namely Doctor Victoria, Officer Vermillion, Professor Vitellary, Chief Verdigris, and Doctor Violet. Instead of jumping, the player is able to control the direction of gravity, allowing Captain Viridian to flip between the floors and ceilings of the environment. The graphical style of VVVVVV is heavily influenced by the Commodore 64; similarly, the game's music is heavily dependent on chiptune elements. Magnus Pålsson released the soundtrack to VVVVVV as PPPPPP.
