Previously silent on the timing of the release of a Knytt
sequel, Within a Deep Forest
creator Nifflas has finally let a date slip from his keyboard: August 30th. The indie game creator has forged new ground in the community by crafting atmospheric platform adventures that emphasize mood, environment, and exploration
. Within a Deep Forest
poured the challenge on like warm, thorny honey, while the follow-up Knytt
nixed most of the enemies in favor of item discovery. Knytt Stories
continues in the same vein and will include a powerful level-editor, a first for Nifflas. Another first will be the release of an expansion pack with extra levels, music, and other bonuses available for purchase, though both the game and editor will remain free.
