Landing On Steam: Fly’N Greenlit

By Adam Smith on November 8th, 2012.

Fly’N, Ankama’s exquisite and charming botanical platformer, is due to launch on the 9th of November, which just so happens to be tomorrow.

The game is due in the autumn.

Because it exists in a meta-universe made of pure psychic energy that only the next evolution of humankind can even sense the existence of. Also, because it’s French. Wakfu’s English version also launched a few days ago – I know that because I’ve just been playing it for a few hours. Here’s what I discovered.
