It has now been 3 months since N++ launched, and it’s safe to say that there have been some highs and lows. On the plus (plus) side, we’re incredibly happy with N++. It’s a great game that is close to what we wanted to make when we set out on this journey. We’re so happy […]

Yes, itโ€™s happening: N++ is well on its way to PS4. We’ve been working on it since late 2012, so it’s nice to finally be able to talk about it! However, before we talk about the future, lets rewind to the past a little. For those of you not familiar with the backstory: almost 10 […]

It’s that time of year again, the annual migration of game developers to the Game Developer’s Conference in San Francisco.

So here we are in 2011, can you believe it? 2010 went by so fast. It’s going to be a great year, we can feel it. Just after releasing N Arcade Special Edition and feeling very burnt out, we went to Tokyo to try to get some inspiration and motivation to get to work on […]
