July 28th, 2015: N++ Day!
You can get it right now, and you totally should: https://store.playstation.com/#!/en-us/games/n/cid=UP2108-CUSA00041_00-NPPGAMENPPGAMENP
YES! We’re so excited. It’s been a really long road, longer than we expected and longer than we wanted, but you know what? We couldn’t be happier with how the game came out, and we think you’ll be able to see that extra effort and abundance of love that went into it.
It’s awesome. We made tons of improvements since the Beta, including optimizing the size of the save file! It’s at the cost of attract mode / main menu replays, but we think people will appreciate the smaller footprint more than a few hundred replays.
We tweaked levels, we tweaked colours, we put the finishing touches on the animations and got the server running beautifully. The entire team worked our collective fingers to the bone, and play-tested until we couldn’t see from exhaustion. We put everything we have into this game and yet, there are still plenty of things we didn’t get to finish for launch — so expect those to roll out over the next few months!
Check out this amazing launch trailer we made:
ARGHH it’s so punchy and beautiful!
Here are some quick stats:
-2360 unique, handcrafted levels (it would take at least 30 hours to speedrun this game)
-52 colour schemes
-over 6 hours of music by over 40 musicians
-Solo, Co-op and Competitive Multiplayer (Race)
-built-in level editor with online global level-sharing
-highscores with replays for every level, including all player-made levels
For those of you wondering about the price, it is $19.99 to start, and that gets you the game and a “lifetime pass” to all future DLC. We’re planning a huge update that will actually raise the price, and are not planning on putting it on sale much, so if you want this game cheap, don’t wait. Strike while the iron is hot! Or lower cost, anyway.
If it sells well enough on PS4, we hope to be able to afford to port it. We cannot guarantee this will happen, and we don’t know what platform it will come to first if it comes to any. Steam is likelier than most, but again, we have to see how things go. So if you want to see this game anywhere else, please do us a solid and spread the word! We are a tiny team with a tinier budget, and we need all the help we can get.
But it’ll be worth it! The more hands we can get N++ into, the happier the world will be as everyone enjoys smooth, glorious colour and acrobatic ninja action.
So go get the game everyone, and thanks in advance — there’s a special thank you on the credits page to all you N and N+ fans who have enjoyed our work over the years. Here’s to you.
