Cryptic Upcoming Sequel

Hi Nitromians!

We have something brewing at Nitrome that we think you will all be very excited to play on release! We’re not ready to reveal it just yet though it is well underway, but we will tell you that it is a sequel to one of our most popular games ever and probably the most popular game that has yet to have a sequel!

Ok enough clues... guess away and more will be revealed soon :)

And Your Name is...

Hi Nitromians!

We asked a while back what you thought we should call you all and we had some really fun suggestions with some favourites being ‘nits’ (hilarious but possibly some of you would be offended) , coopers (cool but not really Nitrome), Nitrominions (possibly just pipped to the post), pixel people (cool but maybe too long). Nitromians seemed to go down the best so I think we are going to stick with that for a while and see how it sits with everyone. We’re still open to change it though so keep your suggestions coming in.

You can, as always, feedback on FacebookTwitter, or good old Email.

It has now been over a month since we launched the blog and committed to a post every day for that month so what now? …We literally had far too much news it turned out to share with you in a single month so… drum roll… We are happy to announce that we are going to extend that pledge to produce a new post every day for at least another month!

Our aim with the blog is to make it a definitive destination on Nitrome. It should be the most updated part of the site and one that we hope people will grow to want to check out every time that they visit! We have seen the number of people that come to the blog grow substantially over the last month and we hope this will continue :)

What do you think of how we have been updating? ... Please do provide us

Hearting System

The more observant amongst you may have noticed a heart symbol in one of our designs for the new site and today we want to let you know a little more about what the intent is with this element. It is in essence a ‘like’ button so if you click it in the new system it means you like it or as we will probably be calling it ‘heart’ it or possibly ‘love’ it…..but that might be a bit too girly for the boys

What is probably more interesting is how we are going to use that information. For starters you will be able to see the games you have hearted in a section within ‘games’ so there will be a quick easy way to find your favorites. You will also be able to see with a quick rollover on the front page which games are hearted there and w…

3D Game: Tech Demo!

Hey Fans!

You might be used to the preview videos we've been putting out lately but this time we have something slightly different. For the first time we are trying to give you a much earlier peek at something we currently have in development. We have some commentary over the top, so make sure that your speakers are on for this one.

We thought we would also stress that this game is not Twin Shot 3D or the next Twin Shot game! When testing games we often place in some artwork from other games to get a feel for mechanics and to test for bugs.

Hi Fans!

We showed you a preview image recently of this upcoming game - it's Knight Trap! :)

As you can hopefully see from the video, the concept is a little like frogger in that you have to get your knights safely up to the top podeums. The twist here is that each knight that travels up the level will set off traps and your following knights will have to deal with them. So... better be careful about the route you plan and the timing of when you trigger things!

Enjoy :)

Icons App Style!

You may remember we featured a shot of the new site design a few days ago. One of the main changes for the new design is going to be the use of Smartphone style icons in place of our current mini shots. We hope that through using these we can convey more information in less space while also making them look more appealing!

You may notice that we have little red tags with numbers hanging off the icons as well as some of the other buttons on the site. The idea is that we will start to highlight new content on the site that you the user have not yet played. Site sections will show the number of new items that are there. We are considering having a different colour of tag to show any updates that might have been
made and there could…

So I went down to the local newsagents round the corner from ‘Nitrome Towers’ and sat proudly on the shelf was the new issue of Edge Magazine. I swiftly snapped it off the rack, and parted with my £4.50. Back in the office I’m flicking through the pages, sipping my mug of tea I stop on page 20… “Why?” I here you cry! Because the folks at  Edge have chosen our laser totin’ game Canary as their internet game of the month.

So well done to Chris and Stefan, and to everyone at Edge for their impeccable taste!

According to Edge “Canary has an old-fashioned, beat-the-screen structure with a simple but consistently surprising gameplay mechanic.” If you want to read the article about Canary, pop down to your local newsagents and grab a copy. – Happy reading!
