Neverending Stories: Knytt Underground

By Alec Meer on January 28th, 2013.

I love it when promotional screenshots are already 600 pixels wide. TAKE NOTE COVERAGE-HUNGRY DEVS

Huh, that’s weird. I could swear we posted about carefully gorgeous platformer sequel Knytt Underground, but perhaps I just presumed John ‘Knytt Stories’ BFF 4 EVA‘ Walker would cover it. Legendary indie dev Nifflas’ latest was released last month, and very probably deserves more substantial coverage on RPS than this here post, but let’s get this particular ball rolling.

Nifflas+2: 6 Shots of Whiskey / The Big Sea

By Alec Meer on November 7th, 2011.

I tried another one where I named the characters after my current and former cats. That was a really bad, heartbreaking idea

One of the many things about indie gaming that makes me feel warm and fuzzy, and like maybe the world isn’t about to end in war and poverty and climate change and giant ant invasion after all, is that even established names in the field can’t resist getting involved in gamejams.

By John Walker on October 29th, 2007.

Some sad news. Not like, someone’s dead sad. But sad if you like tiny little platform games made of loveliness.

Nifflas, creator of Within A Deep Forest, Knytt and Knytt Stories, has announced (on Saturday, but I was too busy becoming 30 to notice then) that Knytt Experiment is no more, and he’ll not be releasing the promised Knytt Stories add-on pack either.

Knytt Stories

By John Walker on September 18th, 2007.

It’s taken me far too long to get around to writing about this, but reading a post on TIGsource about a possible new game by Nifflas reminded me to talk about the beautiful Knytt Stories.

You knytt

You may know Nifflas (Swedish indie dev Nicklas Nygren) from his lovely Within A Deep Forest, which should be incentive enough to check out his latest, Knytt Stories, still only a couple of weeks out. If not, then let the below be your incentive.
