VVVVVV c64 conversion...

Hello all,

I've been a long time c64 fan, and have since a few years been into assembler game coding on the c64. I've never released anything yet, mostly because all my projects are not finished and I don't want to raise too high expectations.

From the beginning of this year I've been working on a c64-version of the best 2010-indie game: VVVVVV (http://thelettervsixtim.es/). I already have a layout converter written and have most of the basic gravity flipping control mechanism implemented. The original author Terry Cavanagh is very enthousiastic about a real c64 version.

Before releasing anything though, I wondered if anybody here is interested in converting the awesome chiptunes that accompany this great game. Souleye (http://souleye.madtracker.net/) has given permission for c64 versions of his tunes, as long as they're non-profit. I think a skilled c64 musician should be able to make a version which sounds equally as good as the originals. I myself have a preference for a 6581 goattracker version...

To show you guys I'm for real, hereby 2 screenshots of my work-in-progress version:

Awesome Screenshot. Though I did not even know the PC version before, I really enjoyed the preview, compared it to the ori and was simply amazed. This really can get one of the greatest games ever for the C64 - let alone in the post-1980s-era. Might even become a true milestone.

Hi SoulEye,

Some progres has been made since my last post from the end of january. However, the game has been on hold for some months due to my entry for the RGCD c64 16KB cartridge competition (http://www.rgcd.co.uk/2011/05/c64-16kb-cartridge-game-developme..).
I will pick it up again at the end of the year...

Souleye, did you do the original soundtrack? The music was excellent! You should have a go at some SIDs yourself!
