Knytt Sequel Planned for PS3 and PS Vita

Indie developer Nifflas has teamed up with Green Hill and Ripstone Publishing to create Knytt Underground, to be released later this year on PS3 and PS Vita. Versions for Windows, Mac and Linux have been announced as well. 

Knytt Underground is a sequel to Knytt and Knytt Stories, downloadable freeware platformers available here. While those games achieved an impressive atmosphere using effective pixel art, Nifflas seems to have eschewed that style for this release (given the screenshot seen above), while still maintaning much of the art style that originally made the games so evocative. 

And with Green Hill's assistance, Knytt Underground is promised to be the "biggest" game Nifflas has ever developed. In the press release, Nifflas intimated that not only will this be the grandest scale project he has done, but it's 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."
