Knytt Online Open Beta on the way


Almost exactly a year ago, Andrew Noel announced on the Nifflas forums that, after getting permission from the games' original creator, he was going to work on an online version of the Knytt games (Knytt and Knytt Stories). For those of you that are unfamiliar, Nifflas' games as a whole are an incredible collection of indie games that focus on platforming and exploration. They are, without a doubt, my favorite indie games of all time, and in fact the subject of the first C-Blog I ever wrote on Destructoid. Rather than ramble on about it here, I'll let you go back and read my terrible writing from 2007.

Back to the matter at hand, after initially announcing Knytt Online, Andrew said the project was on hiatus while he went back to school. After little communication, most people assumed the project was scrapped, but yesterday he made a surprise announcement that the game is, in fact, on track and that there will be an open beta coming next week. While I don't know how well Knytt will work in an online environment, I'm certainly excited to find out. 

Andrew has released a YouTube trailer showing off the game to tide you over until it's official release, which is embedded after the jump. Take a look.

If you've never played any of Nifflas' games, you owe it to yourself to download them all and play them immediately. If you have, what do you think about Knytt Online. Do you think the concept will work?
