N++ finally hits Steam on August 25, bringing an incredible indie platformer to PC

N++ on Steam

N, if you’re unfamiliar, is pretty much the perfect indie platformer. Originally released as a free flash game in 2004, it’s stupendously easy to learn and basically impossible to master. If you ever got a magazine demo disc in the following six year period, it was probably on there. N++ is the updated, prettier, huger, better version released on PS4 exclusively last year. Now it’s coming back home and it looks better than ever.

Here’s their teaser:

And the feature list from the announcement post:

  • 2,360 new levels (100+ hours)
  • Custom levels, level editor & global level sharing
  • Leaderboards and replays for every level
  • Local co-op mode (up to 4 players)
  • Local competitive mode (up to 4 Players)
  • 63 tracks by top electronic artists
  • 60 color palettes to customize the game’s look
  • Secrets, challenges and lots more to explore

Given the original game was entirely grey on slightly lighter grey and didn’t feature any music at all, nevermind was solely single-player, that’s a lot of new stuff. On the level editor side, they’ve dedicated an entire trailer to that alone:

It’ll hit Steam in a week and will go live at the $15 mark – around £9.99 / €14.99. If you want to try the original it’s still free online or through a download. Try it – it’s ace.
