hi everyone! Wow, we made it — 2018 is almost over.
The big news this year: we celebrated the launch of N++ on Nintendo Switch back in May, thanks to the incredible team at Blitworks. Since then, the game has been enjoyed by a whole new audience, and it’s been so gratifying to see that.
It’s not too late to grab a physical edition copy with a manual designed by yours truly! It’s a really special package we think you’ll love, and you can get it from Super Rare.
So aside from N++ related stuff, what else did we get up to this year?
We did a lot of traveling this year, to meet with friends and colleagues for future projects, to explore cities (our greatest source of inspiration) and enjoy life, and mainly, to soak up lots of fresh ideas as we think about what is next for Metanet Software.
We’ve also been teaching part of a Game Design masters program in Milan, which has been an interesting challenge. It’s quite different from what we’re used to doing, and has really made us think about the process of designing and developing games. It has been incredibly inspirational, and even though we’re the ones teaching, we’ve also learned a lot as part of the process!
And we’ve been prototyping — we’re still not sure what we want to make next, but we’re so excited to continue to figure that out. We’re playing around with small concepts and thinking about what feels great to play, what is most intriguing and interesting, and what excites us the most. We currently have no idea what we’ll go forward with — but that’s ok. Our plan is to figure that out in 2019. We’ll let you know as soon as we’ve got something to share — hopefully you’ll be as excited as we are!
Until then, thanks for playing our games and for coming along for the ride. We think the future is going to be bright.
Happy Holidays, everyone!
We wish you all the best 🙂
