The music is "Vietnam" by Kozilek in case anyone is interested.

@patrickklepek Klonoa? What about another Alundra!?

... You said 1 V too many. ONE TOO MANY

I rate my videogamesmen and women on their ability to pronounce VVVVVV correctly.

That Maverick Bird game is the first WP game (and game jam game) I've a actually wanted to go play. That VVVVVV is one of my favorite game designers right now. I still throw down some Super Hexagon once in a while.

I like Patrick's radio DJ persona at the beginning.

Anyone else see the freeze frame of Twitter around 18:16? Weird.

The only thing I don't like about "Maverick Bird" is that it calls itself a "Flappy Bird Fan Game". I hope it's tongue in cheek, because I've been playing games exactly like that since I had a PalmPilot Professional in the late 90s.

Yep, Maverick bird is one Cavanagh-ass Cavanagh game.

The only thing I don't like about "Maverick Bird" is that it calls itself a "Flappy Bird Fan Game". I hope it's tongue in cheek, because I've been playing games exactly like that since I had a PalmPilot Professional in the late 90s.

Cavanagh loves hard games so maybe he does like that Flappy Bird made the helicopter game hard.

@patrickklepek:

My current favorite is Flappy Space Program.

You have to get as many birds as possible in orbit at the same time, without letting them collide.

I can't click fast enough to launch them...

You can use just about any key/button or a combination of them. It can help to use multiple fingers and/or hands. I put one finger on each Ctrl key and alternate between them to go faster.

There should be a place where we could share our Maverick Bird scores and thoughts. I'm currently at 72.

The whole time he is playing Maverick Bird it seems like a death montage. I've played a stupid amount of that game. It's great/the worst/the best/arghh.

also @patrickklepek it's hard to tell the tone of the FlappyJam but overall it has produced some really interesting games: http://corpsmoderne.net/fsp/ <--- this one stands out along with a few others here: The mmo and this one are great.

http://itch.io/jam/flappyjam

I think the tone varies from dev to dev. Some people have made some really clever satire, others have made unique and challenging versions of the "genre," and other just made dumb/silly clones.

The intro to I am a Brave Knight looked straight out of Never Ending Story.

EDIT: It looks like it was intentional.

I really love Terry Cavanagh. I just want that dudes games forever. No idea what makes them super good to me, but Super Hexagon and VVVVVV are fantastic.

Just from the thumbnail I figured that Terry Cavanagh had made some Flappy Bird clone.

@bobeta: It's sort of funny. Do you think if that game came out it would have received the same amount of hate as Flappy Bird? I feel like that game almost would have gotten a pass because of the games that designer has created in the past.

I'm trying to load the webpage for Maverick Bird and Chrome is refusing to load it. Anyone here have an idea why?

And here is my doofy mash-up of that song with Ke$ha's "Blow" - as endorsed by Kozilek!
