Originally known as Project Q when it was first brought into the public domain some months ago, Nifflas today released Saira [link], his latest complete game and his first venture into shareware. And a fine piece of work it is, too!
After my recent verbal wranglings regarding Cave Story for the Wii, a few people seemed to have the impression that I was beating Mr. Nygren up – this most certainly wasn’t what I intended to convey. In any case, as a big fan of his, I’d like to offer my congratulations. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed all of the game I’ve played through so far; it has all the trademark features you’ve come to expect but with several marked differences and additions when compared to its most obvious cousins, the Knytt games. It’s absolutely worth playing – expect to be completely absorbed! Try the demo and tell me it isn’t so…
To celebrate the occasion and spread some early holiday cheer, I’m giving you the chance to win a free copy of Saira! For details of how you could start exploring the full world of Nifflas’ newest creation, keep reading after the break…
