Hey Nitromians,

We have just had a really cool piece of fan art made for our upcoming game Bump Battle Royale. It was sent to use by Saugandh Nakkarike over on Facebook.

I think you'll all agree that it's not only great, but perhaps even cooler because the game isn't even out yet. A big thanks and congrats to Saugandh for sending this in.

If anyone has got any other fan art they would like to show off then please send them to us via homing pigeon email, Facebook or post. We would love to see them and will feature the best on our site.

Hey Nitromians

Play Denudation!

Hi Nitromians!

Today's Pixel Love Choice is Denudation made by Zillix!

You may remember Zillix from a previous Pixel Love choice, Exposure.

This game is very intuitive in it's play style/controls and (although short) is a very satisfying game to play. As with Exposure, we really enjoyed the minimal approach in the art style, it really manages to denote everything you need to know with it's limited palette. It also has some great music and sound design.

Click to play Denudation!

Have fun! We'll bring you another Pixel Love game next week!

New Game Preview

Hi all,

We have been a little quiet on previewing our upcoming flash releases of late but that doesn't mean they haven't been going on! So let's sort that out with a quick preview!

Our next release is called Bump Battle Royale which is loosely based on Bumper Cars and Sumo Wrestling. It also happens to be 1-4 player with or without Touchy! This makes it the first non-Touchy 4 player Nitrome game since Rush. It also features a mixture of Nitrome characters and universes!

So have a look at the preview video, it's just a taster for now but more will be coming soon!

Flash Cat fan art!

Hey Nitromians,

Take a look at this great piece of fan art by Koficup over on Deviant art. It's a huge picture of Flash Cat riding his trusty errrm... green buggy, beetle, robot cockroach, thingy?

Thanks for your hard work Koficup, it’s fantastic.

We love receiving fan art so please keep sending them in and we will feature our favourites on the blog.

Hey Nitromians,

8bit Doves is coming to a phone near you!

During the #nitromejam people who follow our twitter feed may have seen a quick experiment Arthur did getting 8 bit doves working on the iPhone. Unity ultimately made it very quick to get a working build as the game is very easy to play due to it only using two buttons.

We're now happy to report that we're taking the project forward to a proper mobile release. We are of course adding support for Android and tablets. We have just finished adding a proper front end and tidying some things up that we did due to the limited time frame of the #nitromejam build. Finally were going to add a lot more levels some new features and split into three easy access packs.

This is a s…

Play Piksels

Hi Nitromians!

Today we've chosen Piksels by Bart Bonte as our Pixel Love choice this week. We love the clean simple design of this one.

It borrows ideas from the well known game Snake, as with each "piksel" eaten, you grow in length. The puzzle element in this is something quite fresh. To complete levels you must align your "snakes" within the goal areas, most of the time involving multiple snakes.

Some levels need each snake you create to be of a certain length. This has you using the walls, path blocking and corners among other elements to get your snakes where you need them.

You may remember Bart Bonte's entry in the nitrome jam, In Drmzzz.

Have fun everyone! We'll bring you another pixel love game next week!

Icebreaker on Amazon!

Hey Nitromians,

Great news! Icebreaker is FINALLY out on Amazon!

During the #nitromejam Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage silently released on the Amazon App Store for Kindle Fire devices. We weren't really expecting it to happen, as we had so many problems leading up to this point. We want to rectify that right now. So if you have a Kindle and have been feeling a little left out you can go now and find out what all the fuss has been about.

Another thing that happened during the #nitromejam was that an update launched across iOS for Icebreaker. We have fixed an issue which prevented people with the original iPad from being able to play the game anymore... sorry! This means they can finally play the Kraken pack, yippee. The issue al…

Ditto Love!

Hey Nitromians,

So you all REALLY liked Ditto huh! The sheer amount of ditto fan art we have seen so far has been really awesome.

First off, is this lovely anime styled piece by Nitzumi over on Deviant art.

There has also been some really nice Ditto fan-fiction written by Random-StoryKeeper over on Deviant art. And also another great written piece by Plasmaster over on the Nitrome wiki. Be sure to give them both a read when you have a spare few minutes.

If you have no idea what they are talking about, then it’s time that you completed Ditto and see what the fuss is all about.

Play Ditto!

We love receiving fan art, so please keep sending us links to what you have made and we'll feature our favourites =)

Play Ripple Runner

This week's Pixel Love game is Ripple Runner by DDRKirby(ISQ)

This is a very demanding runner in which you must make it to the end of each stage using the jump and ripple controls.

The music is synced to the characters actions which sounds great as a result.

The artwork looks great and reminded us a little of our game Ditto

Play Hobo Bob!

Here is our second Pixel Love choice, Hobo Bob. This game was created by Wolve. Many of you may know him from his Nitrome Jam entry: The Mind.

This endless runner really is action packed and very addictive!

We found the best finger placement for this game is similar to home row, but with your right hand shifted one key to the left... so:

LEFT HAND
A S D F

RIGHT HAND
H J K L

It is very satisfying completing this one! Once completed, you are given an Infinite mode to play.

Have fun, we'll bring you more Pixel Love next week!

Play Hare's Harvest

Hey Nitromians!

We've noticed that there has been a slight shortage of Pixel Love games whilst we were jamming, so to make up for that, we'll be showcasing two great pixel loves this week.

First off, we have Hare's Harvest, a great little turn based game developed by Michael Cook.

The game has some great mechanics. Using burrows, stomped burrows, foxes, dogs and farmers, your aim is to make your way through the farmers crop of carrots. There are some great puzzles in this one, with some real head scratchers.

Click to Play Hare's Harvest!

We hope you enjoy playing this one!

Stay tuned today for the second Pixel Love game choice!

New jam skin!

Hey Nitromians,

Phew... what a hot and busy week it’s been over at Nitrome HQ. We have a brand new site skin for the website, featuring lots of characters from the #nitromejam.

For those of you who missed it we have finally sorted the issues for the #nitromejam games. Results for the winner will be announced next Friday so you can play, comment and vote for them here.

Thanks again for everybody who took part in the jam and all our fans for being so awesome, it really was great fun.

Next week we should be getting things back to normal. That means a regular Monday Pixel love slot, back to work on updating the accounts and continuing making some brand new games (more news on these when they’re ready).

Until Monday, have a great weekend.

p.s What's you're favourite Jam game?

Nitrome =D
