Congratulations Nifflas (does he still visit here?) That's not the first time Knytt Stories has made it onto the pages of Joystiq.

I was really surprised to see that Chalk wasn't on the list. That was released in 2007, right?

Knytt Stories was nothing special in my opinion. No puzzles, no challenge, no gameplay. It's scary to see so many people are entertained by a dot travelling from one end of the screen to the other. Strange, it actually beat out games with good gameplay.

And that's the truth! You is gonna be flamed foo!

Sorry, couldn't help myself...

You present your opinion rather blunt.
I myself am amazed at what nifflas manages to create with his Knytt games.
You are absolutely right about the game lacking puzzles, but to say it lacks gameplay is absurd. It's a game that goes beyond casual gaming opposite most other home-brewes. The atmosphere is extraordinary! The freedom is, in lack of better description, art. It was amazing that nifflas managed to create the original Knytt, and to be able to make a sequel that exceeded it was even more amazing! There is something about those two games that make them the gems they are. They are indeed simple, but brilliant in their simplicity.

And if you are unable to experience them in their fullest, I feel sorry for your lacking that ability.

Ive never played a Knytt game.

But I do get the feeling that these lists are based more on popularity than actually having played every single freeware game that year. Which is not easy to do but would make things more accurate.

Pissed on a wasp nest where all the little wasps are capable of doing what the queen wasp did but they don't realise it or try.

Excellent.

I think Knytt Stories was big because of the level editor. If it was just a few Nifflas levels I'd have gotten bored much quicker than I did.

The fanbase is a bit crap though. I suggested some nice features for Nifflas before he released 1.1 or 1.2 or whatever. And the people on his forum set attitudes to defend! A bad bunch.

I never played a Knytt game and probably never will. GFX are too important to me.

The shabbiness of the graphics and the lack of enemies makes this game feel more like an engine test.
