All Articles: N++
It’s another strong week for the Xbox Games Store, and nearly a dozen new Xbox One games are now available to download through the digital storefront as part of its midweek update.
Leading the pack is Microsoft and Turn 10’s Forza Motorsport 7, the latest addition to their massively popular racing simulation series. It’s joined by a pair of minimalist indies (Inversus Deluxe and N++), as well as Joe Madureira’s Battle Chasers: Nightwar, and Capcom’s Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen.
Telltale Games is also back this week with another adventure for the Dark Knight… Batman: The Enemy Within – Episode 2: The Pact.
You can learn more about all of today’s additions to the Xbox Games Store after the break. (more…)
N++ is coming to Xbox One on October 4… Inversus is coming to Switch on September 28 and Xbox One on October 4
Two beloved indie games will have new platforms to call home in the next few weeks. N++ will soon make the leap to the Xbox One, while Inversus will shoot up the Xbox One and the Switch in the very near future.
You can find out exactly when both games will launch (and watch two new trailers) after the break. (more…)
N++ made its debut on the PS4 in 2015, and a Steam release followed a year later. The massive platformer continued to gain fans throughout 2016, and just this past April, it was upgraded to an Ultimate Edition on both platforms with the addition of new levels, color schemes, and a Hardcore Mode.
But there’s still more work to be done at Metanet Software, as the developer announced that N++ will finally make an appearance on the Xbox One this Summer. The game will launch on Microsoft’s console in its Ultimate Edition form, complete with all 60 color schemes and 4,340 “hand-crafted” levels.
More information about N++’s Xbox One launch will be announced at a later date.
Metanet Software has announced they’re expanding N++ with 2,170 new levels (bringing the total number of levels to 4,340), 60 new color schemes, and an ultra-challenging Hardcore Mode. These new features will be added to the side-scrolling platformer as part of a free “Ultimate Edition” upgrade, which is available now for PC players.
To celebrate the release of the N++ Ultimate Edition, Metanet is slashing the price of the game on Steam this weekend. From now until Sunday, April 23, at 1:00 PM, you can purchase the game for 50% off the regular price. And to further entice you, the developer has released a new trailer for the game, which has been embedded above.
The N++ Ultimate Edition is also in the works for the PS4, and it’ll be available for Sony’s console “soon.”
Metanet will release N++ for PC on August 25
Metanet Software has announced that N++ will be available to download for the PC (through Steam) beginning on August 25. The brutally-difficult platformer originally launched for the PS4 last year and it’ll bring the same side-scrolling action to the PC… and I mean that literally. N++’s Level Editor is cross-platform compatible, so PC players will have more than 10,000 custom levels to choose from next week. That’s on top of the 2,360 levels designed by the developers themselves.
“We’re so thrilled to bring N++ to the PC where the series began,” said Mare Sheppard, Metanet’s Programmer, Designer, Artist and Creative Lead. “We’ve already seen some impressive user creations, and can’t wait to see what creativity the PC-gaming community has up their sleeves.”
The developer also released a new trailer highlighting the Level Editor, which can also be used to design levels for N++’s Co-Op Mode and Competitive Mode (both of which support up to four players).
N++ will be available through Steam for $14.99, but if you purchase it within the first week, you’ll receive a 20% discount.
Metanet Software’s Raigan Burns recently put in an appearance at NeoGAF to confirm that N++ will be available for the PC (through Steam) very soon. According to the developer, there’s still “a few more months of work” to be done before the devilish clever platformer can be released for the PC, but the team is also “looking at other platforms” (presumably the Xbox One) too:
The good news: we’ve found a new programmer, and they’ve been working on porting N++ to Steam for the past month or so. There are still a few more months of work — we want to add all of the planned post-launch-update stuff that got put on hold when our team imploded — but we will definitely be bringing N++ to Steam. We’re still looking at other platforms too.
Anyway, thanks for your continued support…
N++ originally launched for the PS4 last Summer, and it was honored in our 2015 Golden Pixel Awards with a place on “The Apocalypse List” as “[one of] the games we’d keep playing if we had all the time in the world…”
The conventional wisdom will tell you that 2015 was a down year for games and that all the good stuff got pushed back to 2016. But how can you trust the conventional wisdom when last year featured a ridiculously entertaining string of good games starring kid squids, gothic hunters, glitchy sci-fi heroes, and the lone survivor of a nuclear war. And all that’s before you dip into the millions of user-created levels from Super Mario Maker.
Yup, we think 2015 was a pretty great year for games, especially the ones that took home some hardware during our annual Golden Pixel Awards… (more…)
Sony’s PSN Play 2015 promotion continues this week with the release of N++ (PS4), a minimalist side-scroller where players take control of a gold-seeking ninja. Leap wide chasms, avoid obstacles, and watch out for those rockets! N++ is packed with hundreds of hand-crafted levels and an extensive level editor to create and share even more.
Also available this week is new entries in a pair of episodic adventure games. Life Is Strange: Dark Room (PS3, PS4) is the fourth episode in Dontnod’s apocalyptic tale and Max finally gets an eyeful of just how dangerous time travel can be. But danger is the name of the game in King’s Quest: A Knight to Remember (PS3, PS4), the first episode in The Odd Gentlemen’s reboot of the classic adventure series. Though I doubt a game described as “whimsical” and “charming” by its developers deals with the end of the world.
But speaking of the end of the world, another group of teenagers will have to stop a monstrous evil, actually named “The End,” from destroying the world in Atlus’s Lost Dimension. The twist this time is that the 11 kids at the center of the story are psychics and at least one is a traitor. You’d think a group of psychics wouldn’t have a problem with that kind of treachery…
Finally this week, we end with another dash of “whimsical” and “charming” with Legend of Kay Anniversary (PS3, PS4). A remaster of a ten-year-old PS2 game starring a feline samuari, Legend of Kay Anniversary is nothing if not adorable.
More information on all of these games (and a few others) can be found after the break. And a complete rundown of this week’s new game add-ons and discounts can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)
