Nifflas Games, spearheaded by the creative talents of Nicklas Nygren, brings us Knytt Underground. My interview with Nygren can be found here, as we discussed many aspects of the game itself previously. This is the largest project and it combines elements from previous Knytt games, as well as the popular Within a Deep Forest. The game takes place in a world where humans have all but destroyed the earth in a massive war of the past and have since moved underground to live with other creatures.
The player controls Mi, a sprite that lives underground but is complete mute. I don’t mean that your character just doesn’t verbally speak, I mean that she is literally mute. After progressing through the game, you discover two fairies that assists you in communicating with others, you discover many different types of special abilities and take on various different quests within the world.
