We are all nursing some rather sore heads this morning after an early festive chrismas party last night. Check out the group mugshot of the Nitrome crew (and partners).
Our hero Rust Bucket and his turn based friend's are in a spot of bother after being ambushed by a pack of slimes.
You can pick up allies and use them to get you out of a tight squeeze in the endless dungeon and level mode. They mimic Rust Buckets movement so can be used to strategically gain advantage in battle, or hold down multi-switches or save villagers. In Fact they can pretty much do whatever you can... yeah we know, sounds useful doesn’t it?
The current plan (all going well) is to release Rust Bucket before xmas. In-fact its already been submitted to the stores and is awaiting review.
More Rust Bucket hype soon. ;)
Gopogo our free ultra hard platform bouncer is OUT NOW on your devices for Android and iOS. Be sure you check out the AWESOME music by Eirik Suhrke who's titles include Ridiculous Fishing, Spelunky and most importantly our very own Gunbrick and Platform Panic.
Some of you may have noticed the lack of news on the blog lately, rest assured it's not because we are taking it easy. Far from it, we are working harder than ever making a bunch of brand new games for you to get your gaming mitts on. We don't always get the time every week to fill you in with lots of news and teasers. We try to post as much as we have time for, the rest of the time we are hard at work.
Make sure to follow us on Twitter (@nitrome) as-well as our blog for all the latest news, info and gossip.
p.s Has anyone managed to unlock any of the games many nitrome cameo's yet?
Phew! it's Friday again after another extremely busy week. Time to fill you in with some details of what’s been happening this week here at Nitrome towers.
First off our next game Gopogo is out soon, in-fact it's going to be hitting the stores NEXT WEEK and we couldn't be more pleased with how it turned out.
Rust bucket is coming along leaps and bounds and we are wrapping up the finished product into a pretty bow to submit to the stores fairly soon. We are aiming for and Xmas release on this one.
Codename jump is finally being picked up again after a long break finishing off other projects. We will fill you in on some of the details of this as development progresses within the coming weeks. It's so far lookin…READ MORE
Great news Niromians,
Our next game is coming out really soon...
In fact, it will be released on stores at some point late NEXT WEEK!
It's not Rust Bucket that we have been talking about recently but rather 'Go Pogo' which has been developing much more quietly behind the scenes. So with that in mind we thought it was time to change all that and break out a quick little Gif for you all to enjoy.
This is taken from one of the levels in the game but there is also an endless mode for the High score chasers amoungst you too.
More info on Gopogo as we get closer to launch next week!
As a little Friday treat (for those who just don't like to read) we though we'd show off Rustbuckets Endless dungeon in all its glory. A different experience EVERY time you play!
Only the bravest monster slayers will survive to room 10+!
EDIT: There WILL be some sort of training level based campaign to introduce players into the carnage of the turnbased endless dungeon. We will show more of this soon!
We are also planning a larger Level based series of updates that will flesh out the stages into a much larger campaign with new themes and traps being introduced. Much like the original game, but bigger and better.
It's been a while since we have posted... we'll anything really. The good news is that it's not because we have been slacking off. In-fact, we are working harder than ever on a whole bunch of brand new exciting games.
You already know about Rustbucket and Gopogo, But we also have another two games in the early stages of development. We are as ever remaining tight lipped about them for now, but stay tuned to hear more about these in the coming weeks.
Now back to the games you already know are coming!

Get the game for your device here!
Android users - We have updated the App through the Google Playstore so please make sure you have the latest version (1.0.3)
We have had a handful of complaints about crashes (so far usually on lower end devices). The game should technically work on most androids who run 4.0.3 and up. If you can please give us details on where the app has crashed, as-well as your device model and version number. We will try our best to get it working on as many devices as we can, but unfortunately there are no guarantees.

Beneath the Lighthouse is out TOMORROW across your mobile devices, so you wont have to wait long to discover all of the devious traps that lie beneath the lighthouse.
As you can see from the Gif our round headed protagonist isn't the ONLY thing that like to roll. Unfortunately for him, its some huge abandoned sea mines. =(
FUN FACT! did you know that beneath the lighthouse has a Speed run system in place, with Gold, Silver and Bronze reward for the fastest possible times? It's going to be a REAL challenge to get all gold across the board.
More news about Beneath The Lighthouse and our other projects soon.
We are gearing up to the big release of Beneath the Lighthouse with some mouth watering gif's. In the first of which we can see our large headed protagonist discovering a brand new trap 'the auto winch'.
The player can spin a level around using their finger, but the winch will always rotate the level back to it's original position. This makes for some tricky action/puzzles later on, as you have to 'pre' spin the stage the correct amount to pass a number of nasty hazards.
We are really excited about this release and we hope you are too. So if you'd like to help us spread the word, then please share the news with your friends.
Beneath The Lighthouse Trailer!
Check out the trailer for our upcoming atmospheric action/puzzle title Beneath the Lighthouse. It should be "fingers and toes crossed" available for FREE across your mobile devices THIS WEEK!
We are highly optimistic that a premium version might be available on the brand NEW apple TV for its big Friday launch as-well. We are super proud at how well it turned out and that we have finally managed to get a game onto an 'actual' Television is pretty cool.
Finally we are aiming to get a Unity version on our site ASAP with as little gap as we can manage. It is quite a fiddly process though so please be patient.
More news on BTLH and other games soon. =3
I have been listening to your cries in the blog for this weeks missing Pixellove, so without further ado...
Play infiniy inc, by The Shpufa's
Infinity inc, a derelict and deadly facility. (Made for what I can only assume as some sort of sadistic test chamber).
You and your trusty disposable clones must use your grey matter and a bit of good old sacrifice to fight your way through the chambers.
***WARNING!*** this one does contain quite a few low rez red pixels and some crude humour. You have been warned, anyone who is afraid of red squares then this is not for you!
A polished experience with solid atmospheric effects, sound and some neat puzzle makes this a worthy addition to Pixellove.
Let us know what you think of Infinity inc in the comments below.
