Knytt – 16-Bit Platforming Freeware Action

It appears as though my day has just been made, thanks in full part to Nifflas’ Knytt, a 16-bit style, 2D platformer that is just too awesome not to talk about. Taking cues from Shadow of the Colossus, Ico, Doukutsu Monogatari and Seiklus, Knytt is about a young Knytt (the little guy you play as) who has been abducted by an alien. After going through space, the UFO hits a meteor and crash lands on the nearby planet. Once landed, you must find the parts to repair your ship. From there, soothing 2D platforming action ensues to my (and hopefully your) great pleasure. The game looks beautiful, has very simple, but incredibly fun gameplay and some of the best, most soothing music seen this side of Colossus. You must try this game out, I can already say it is one of my favorite games on my computer (and I have quite a few, let me assure you of that). Get Knytt here (click here for installer) and get playing.

Note: this game comes form the same maker of Within A Deep Forest, a game with a similar style that I also wholeheartedly recommend. Now back to playing Knytt…
