The game takes inspiration from "I Wanna Be The Guy", "Megaman", "Cave Story", and "Castlevania", along with a host of masochistic retro platformers, while cutting out the arbitrary difficulty in favor of skill based gameplay. The game aims to capture the attention of the same core group of players as its spiritual precursor, "I Wanna be the Boshy ", including the hardcore platformer lovers and the speedrunning community, all while appealing to a broader audience through a variety of difficulty levels and modifiers .
"Wings of Vi" is an interesting mix between challenge, story and with room for both exploring and tricky platforming.
The game is now available on Steam.

Patch 1.14: The community patch
Together with the Wings of Vi community, a lot of quality of life changes and fixes have been made - along with a new modifier: the mirror mode. This'll flip the screen horizontally, but also flip your controls. This means, that the world will be backwards but you'll still control as normal.
Just wanted to use this time to say thanks to all the support the game has gotten over the years - and is still getting. It meant that I could do game development fulltime, at least for now, and it's been the best time in my life. I'm still working on Roah, which is still slated for late 2017 - early 2018 (But it's done when it's done).
