Uurnog Uurnlimited adds co-op to Nifflas’s platformer

Earlier this year, Knytt creator Nifflas and chums released Uurnog, a puzzle-platformer about stealing animals to use them as power-ups, which also rocked neat-o algorithmic dynamic music. It was one of those there 'Humble Originals', smaller games commissioned by Humble for their subscription service and store. Now the devs are revisiting and expanding Uurnog, adding features like cooperative play and a level editor, for a…

No you’re nog: Knytt dev releases Uurnog

Oh hey! Uurnog [official site], the new game from Knytt and NightSky developer Nifflas' Games, is out for all to buy. Uurnog is a cutesy puzzle-platformer about rescuing/collecting/abducting animals, whose abilities you can use while carrying them, and has some fancy algorithmic music. We knew Uurnog was coming in March's Humble Monthly subscription doodad as one of the 'Humble Originals' but hey, turns out it's…

Uurnog is a musical platformer from Knytt creator

I know an ‘Uurnog’ sounds like some gargantuan beast from Norse legend, but it’s not. Uurnog [official site] is really a newly announced, synthy, block-grabbing platformer from yer man Nifflas, aka Niklas Nygren, the creator of the Knytt series and NightSky among others. The aim in this one is to explore the world and “steal all the animals and keep them in the save room…

Freeware Garden: Battle Cube

Battle Cube is neither the latest game by Knytt creator Nifflas, nor his latest freeware offering -- that would be lovely platformer Saira. It is a little non-platforming experiment instead and a game he released roughly a year ago and has himself categorized as a miscellaneous creation. Also, it's a brilliant little thing I totally randomly bumped into and instantly loved.

Ocarina Of Tide: Shrug Song Is Gorgeous, Musical

Goodness, Shrug Song is a delightful little thing. It's basically The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time's titular instrument distilled down into a core game mechanic, but with more immediate one-to-one effects on a gloriously serene island-like world. You play as a musical "Shrug," morphing and contorting your wispy body into whatever shape best sings along with nature. The collaboration between creator Alina Constantin and Knytt…

Neverending Stories: Knytt Underground

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

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. Take Knytt Stories creator Nifflas, for instance, who's co-developed a rather impressive, Unity-powered Marble…

Dusky Balls: NightSky Demo

NightSky - the latest game from micro-platforming supremo Nifflas, is out now. And if that's not exciting enough news for you, there's a demo to try to get you there. The full game is £10, but the demo - it's free! Crazy. Once more it's physics platforming, this time rolling a metal sphere through levels in a peculiar dream world. Knowing that it's Nifflas, through…

Very Teleportant: Saira

So my plan to have a quick play of the Saira demo turned into my whole morning. A new game from Nifflas is a reason to sit up straight and start downloading. The creator of the gorgeous Knytt Stories has created his first commercial game, and it's a rather beautiful thing. For those familiar with his previous games - tiny slivers on the screen, creating…

Once In Space

I've just kicked off a lethargic Sunday morning by playing a rather cute platform game, found via Indygamer. Said platformer, Once In Space by Arvi Teikari, is a lovely hand-drawn minimalist piece that allows your stickman character to alter the axes of the gravity he faces to beat the levels that lie ahead of him. It's astonishingly simplistic, but works brilliantly once you've worked out…

Knytt No More

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

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 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…
