N++ Minimalist platformer releases on Steam

n++-fact-paced platformer coming to linux

The final and definitive entry in Metanet’s minimalist platformer series hits PC today! The original N debuted 12 years ago on the PC, and N++ brings the series back to its home turf. Boasting over 2,000 hand-built levels, Metanet has made the possibilities endless including a level editor and global sharing — players will have at their disposal endless levels while also being able to flex their creativity to challenge others.

A gorgeously polished platformer that remains familiar while still innovating on its own formula.

Watch the launch trailer:

In support of the launch, Metanet Software will be doing an AMA on Reddit beginning at 10 a.m. PDT / 1 p.m. EDT. Follow along or ask your own questions the AMA on Reddit

About N++
Developed in Toronto by Metanet Software (N, N+), N++ (“N PLUS PLUS”) is the final and definitive iteration of the series which helped to usher in the modern era of hardcore running and jumping. The most hand-crafted, high-quality levels in any platformer ever created, at 2360. And with a host of new enemies hungry to destroy you, N++ may be the most intense platforming challenge ever created. It may also be the most stylish: the colourful new visual aesthetic — in collaboration with graphic designer MASA — means that even as you weep openly in defeat, your eyes will bask in the visual splendor which only immaculately anti-aliased vector graphics can provide.
