Mac and Windows users can finally enjoy Nifflas' latest exploration platformer, Knytt Underground, with a free demo and full game purchase for $14.99. PlayStation users gained access last week, but now the game is available to a much wider audience.
The story goes that "Mi Sprocket is a sprite who develops special powers as she embarks upon a quest to ring the six bells of fate; which if not rung every six hundred years will begin a chain reaction that will obliterate the world!"
I've beaten chapters 1 and 2 rather quickly, but those seemed to serve as extended tutorials for how to play as the legged and ball characters. Chapter 3's map is huge, and I can now use both characters' abilities interchangeably to explore most of the 1,800 rooms in the game.
A free demo is available to download for Mac or Windows, and the full game is available via Fastspring or Gamer's Gate for $14.99. Those wanting it on Steam can help support its Greenlight campaign.
Lastly, Linux users can download a demo of the game in beta or purchase the same full game from Fastspring to get access to the full version Linux betas (and the 1.0 release when it's out).
