Editor's note: Apologies for being late and a little vague with some of the details. I'll fill them in as they become available.
I had no idea what Knytt Underground was about, so I looked it up on nintendo.com.
Well, look at that. This Wii U eShop game is rated M for "Sexual Themes, Strong Language." Interesting. It looks like a platformer, and it's developed by Nifflas (real name Nicklas Nygren). Now where have I heard that name before?
Ah, Nifflas worked on NightSky. Knytt Underground is actually part of the Knytt series and has already been released on other platforms before.
Knytt Underground really opens up on chapter 3 I believe where the world has an insane amount of rooms to explore... but sadly, it still didn't grab me. I wouldn't judge it by the first couple of chapters as those that do enjoy it say it gets a lot better once those are cleared but it's still not enough for me to recommend.
