Spin The Bottle Studio KnapNok Is Working With NightSky Creator Nifflas On Wii U Title

"You will definitely like this one"

KnapNok's Spin the Bottle hits the Wii U eShop this week, and the company's Creative Director Lau Krosgaard has been speaking to Nintendo World Report about upcoming projects.

Krosgaard has revealed that KnapNok is working with NightSky creator Nifflas — real name Nicklas Nygren — on a new Wii U eShop project:

What we can say is that we are actually working together with a Swedish developer called Nifflas, who did NightSky for 3DS. He has been doing all of these amazing, moody platformers also just for PC. He is a brilliant game developer and he really wanted to make a game for the Wii U. He had this idea and so now we are working with him on realizing that basically. It is basically his game, so it is not a weird party game as we like to do and it is really a Nifflas game.

You will definitely like this one, but it is very early right now. We might be able to show screenshots in a few months towards the end of the year, but the launch might be in a year or something like that.

Sounds promising — and it's yet another Wii U eShop indie title to look forward to.

:O woohoo, go Nifflas!

His work would fit pretty well on the WiiU imo. He does a lot of atmospheric exploration-based platformers which are similar to Metroidvania titles but feature more puzzles and less combat. I remember playing Within a Deep Forest as a kid, that game really made me reassess what a platformer could be.

I like Nifflas's stuff. Knytt Underground has some pretty trippy locations (hello, giant mushrooms) and a huge world to explore, but some of the platforming is infuriating!! Hopefully he dials the punishment down a bit to the more puzzle-exploration type of gameplay found in the earlier Knytt games and Nightsky.

These are really great people all of them, always thinking very out of the box. I'm certain they'll come up with something cool.

Knytt Underground would also be a great thing to have on Wii U.

Nifflas you say? Ok, I'm interested. Gotta say though, it's kind of a weird combination, Nifflas and KnapNok.

Really enjoyed Knytt stories on the PC. Moody, nicely paced, just tricky enough and felt fresh from beginning to end despite owing everything to the Metroid approach to platformers. Will be interesting to see what he has in mind for Wii U. Very curious about this.
