We have just released a fresh batch of avatars for you to find!
There are some really awesome avatars in this update, but we don't want to spoil anything for you.
Have fun collecting them all! :D
We have chosen the game Pivot by PodBot as our choice for this week's Pixel Love!
Solving the puzzles in Pivot revolve around turning the screen in 90 degree increments to collect the chests that have been placed throughout the various rooms.
As you may know by now, we really like the look of well drawn chunky pixel art in games and in Pivot this is no exception. The navigation gameplay mechanic in this one was a challenge at first. After a while of rotating the environment, you realise that some of the rooms require you to remember what was in the previous room. You then rotate your current room to the correct orientation and jump onto the chest in the previous.
We feel this game is very well executed and deserves to be this week's Pixel Love game.

Have fun, we'll see you next week for more Pixel Love!
It's Friday, time for another update.
Next week we have a new batch of avatars for you to find and collect. Also Tom has been working hard on improving the messaging system on the accounts. It's looking snazzier than ever with a bunch of new features! We aim for this to be released later next week. Of course there will be another Pixel Love treat for you as well on Monday.
We are always looking for ways to enhance the accounts and user experience, so has any body got any suggestions for things they would like to see improved?
See you next week! :)
We have recently been busy working on improving the comments system used on our games, blog and comments pages.
We have introduced a new "more comments" button at the bottom of the comments. This lets you load in more comments without the need to leave the page that you are currently viewing.
We have also introduced a new notification that notifies you when someone has replied to one of your comments. When you click the notification, it should take you to the highlighted comment where you can view the conversation in full.
You can now also reply to replies in the comments section too.
If you have any bugs that you think we should know about or experiencing issues using your account, feel free to leave comments below or message us about them!
We want to make the experience as best as we possibly can. Thanks for your feedback and continued support everyone!
Today's Pixel Love game is Clockwork Cat, a game made by Patrick Traynor in 48 hours for Ludum Dare "10 Seconds" theme.
This game makes very clever use of the passage of time. We know that this one is short, but we really feel that it shows a lot of promise in its concept and deserves to be highlighted. This game both looks and plays great.

Have fun, we will see you next week for more Pixel Love!
In an unexpected move, Valve Greenlit 100 new games for distribution on their Steam platform. The great news is that our title Flightless was one of them!
We have been wavering between position 70 and position 80 for most of the 10 months that it has been on Greenlight, so to say it came as a surprise to us is a bit of an understatement!
We fully expect that this event will prompt lots of new questions like 'when' and 'how much' and 'give us an update' but please try to refrain. With this coming rather out of the blue we're sorry but we really do not have any new information to share with you all at this time. The fact is that it had been stuck in Greenlight for so long that we had half given up on the project. We will update you when we know what we ourselves are doing.
In the meantime we hope you are as thrilled as we are that Flightless finally got Greenlit. If you don’t know what we are talking about then you can try the demo of Flightless for free here.
Todays Pixel Love game is Soom by Aimar.
Although the game starts with a rather dark intro, it has actually been a real joy to play.
We really enjoyed the varied mechanics in this puzzle platformer and found ourselves scratching our heads at the interesting ways we needed to fold space to pass the levels.
You can expect portal like teleportation, split second avoidance and some tricky yet satisfying puzzles to solve.
Have fun, we will bring you another Pixel Love game next Monday!
It's Friday, time for an update!
We hope you are all enjoying the latest updates to the Nitrome Touchy app, what do you think of the new and improved d-pad? We are really happy with the way it has turned out! :)
Join us next week as we will be bringing you our brand new game... Oodlegobs!
Until then have a great weekend everyone!
We have been hot on the heels of some more bugs here at Nitrome. This is just a quick recap for everyone to see what changes have been made :)
Please report to us if you still get logged out unnexpectedly. It is a tough issue to fix, but we will do everything we can with the information we get on this issue.
Thanks for helping out!
Well well well... I think the word you are looking for is "Oops!"
We missed that one when we rolled out the update! Also we fixed the Touchy bug within the game that prevented you from using the cloud vehicles.
Wow, there are now over 50,000 accounts registered here on Nitrome, great job Nitromians!
We'd like to say a big thank you to everyone that has an account and to those that have been giving us feedback in regards to bugs and the quality of the site experience.
We are listening and are working on introducing more improvements to the service. We are very pleased with the response so far!
Thanks again for being part of the Nitrome community!
Today, we've chosen Once in the Cave as our choice for Pixel Love!
We like the art style in this one. You play as a wizard casting spells of fire and ice to make it through the levels.
The controls have real ease of use allowing the player to fluidly move around the levels. Once in the Cave feels great to play.

Have fun, we will see you next Monday for more Pixel Love!
It’s Friday and what does that mean… well something slightly different this time.
We are very proud to announce that the Nitrome Touchy App on iTunes and Google Play has been updated. So what does that mean to you the humble gamer? Well you can check out the video... or read on, or why not do both!!!
The Touchy technology has been updated and now we feel that the Touchy dpad is the best touch screen dpad interface on the market! All of our previous dpad based Touchy games have been updated. Also we must add that there is now wide screen support for iPhone5 and various Android devices.
And that’s not all! We have 5 more games that have been added to the Nitrome Touchy Catalogue. They are as follows:READ MORE
