VVVVVV is a retro styled 2D platformer by Terry Cavanagh, creator of dozens of free games. You play as the fearless leader of a team of dimension exploring scientists who inadvertently crash, and are separated. The game involves exploring the strange world you've found yourself in, and reuniting your friends. VVVVVV explores one simple game mechanic: you cannot jump - instead, you reverse your own gravity at the press of a button. The game focuses on playing with this mechanic in a variety of interesting ways. The game is designed not to artificially gate your progress. In VVVVVV there are no locks, no power-ups, no switches, nothing to stop you progressing except the challenges themselves.

I got this game in my Steam account. Are there any means to claim it on desura?

I don't think so. Desura would have no profit of a feature like that.

Actually Desura do allow it (which makes them just awesome), although it's down to the dev if he wants to give out keys to those that already own it on steam.

this game crashes on startup, I can't seem to determine the problem, I'm running arch x64, anyone has a similar issue?

I found something out: Archlinux is missing libjpeg.so.62 and libslang.so.2, this game seems to need those, I tried to install them from the AUR but libslang is not there and installing them from another source makes the game segfault, so it's obiously missing some dependencies on some distros such as arch. I'm giving up on this one, since I have no idea of how to proceed from here, but I hope the developers or the desura team know about this so other people that buy this game area actually able to play it.

Challenging, frustrating, and insanely evil...Yet probably one of the best games I've played in a long time. It will kill you over and over again, but without leaving you with the feeling of lacking in accomplishment that most repetative deaths do. My only complaint is the controls can either be too sensative, or not enough. Otherwise the game is fun and simple, the way games used to be. I generally dispise gravity runner type games, but the scenery, simple yet fun plot, combine well with the challenging…
