Raigan Burns and Mare Sheppard of Metanet Software have gathered plenty of praise and awards (such as Audience Award at the 2005 Game Developers Choice Awards
) for their 2004 indie platformer, N
. You take the role of a ninja who must flip, walljump, and climb your way through hundreds of levels, many of which were created by fans using the in-game editor. It's a simple game on all fronts that captivated players with realistic physics and plenty of non-violent ninja-ing.
Now, Atari and Silver Birch have announced a publishing deal to bring N
to the PSP, cleverly titled N+
. The game comes packed with over 500 levels, including 50 user-created stages from fans of the original game. The PSP incarnation doesn't appear to contain any additional content over the free PC/Mac/Linux game
, but portability (and a decent PSP title
to own) might be the biggest selling points.N+
has also been announced for Xbox Live Marketplace
and is scheduled for release this fall.
