Indie game developer Nifflas and production company Green Hill just announced a partnership with Ripstone Publishing that will bring the latest version of Knytt (pronounced K’nit) to the Playstation 3 Console. For those of you that have never played Knytt. Stop reading this right now and go download Knytt Stories. Seriously do it. It’s free.
So now that you’ve played Knytt, you should be really excited for the rest of this story. Knytt Underground is the grander sequel to the massively popular freeware games Knytt and Knytt Stories. As you can see from the images, Knytt Underground is already looking beautiful. Nicklas Nygren, Creative Director at Nifflas states: “Knytt Underground is the biggest game I’ve ever developed and is the first game where I feel that I have a story to tell. It’s about the big questions; trying to understand life and our place in it – and failing completely.” That along with a few images is all that’s really out there about Knytt Underground, but I expect there will be a large 2D landscape to explore freely similar to Knytt Stories.
Knytt Underground will be available on PlayStation®3 and PlayStation®Vita later this year, but is also coming to Windows PC, Mac, and Linux.
