is the colorful followup to the platformer Knytt
and the platformer-slash-game design engine Knytt Stories
, developed by Nicklas "Nifflas" Nygren. This new game is bringing the Knytt series to consoles for the first time since the homebrew DS port
of Knytt Stories.
There are official plans to release Underground
on PS3 and Vita this year, along with Windows, Mac, and Linux versions.
Nifflas is developing the new platformer with Green Hill, allowing for "the biggest game I ever developed," he said. Knytt Underground
is also "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."
