For this week’s ‘Memory Lane’, we are taking you way back to one of our classic games – Twang!
Twang was made for MTV with programming by Chris Burt-Brown and artwork by Mat and Jon Annal. The game won the Peoples Choice Award at Flash Forward ’08 in which Nitrome became the proud owners of a big orange rubber arrow!
In the time of its development, Twang went through many redesigns. An instance of one of the redesigns is of the background environment. Originally, the background features in Twang were made up of red hues and were then changed to purples. After this decision, Jon was often accused of making all of his games purple! :)
We have posted up some early development shots of the game so you can see how the game may have turned out!

Wow - we have some pretty awesome fan art to show you today Nitromians!
The art is in the form of... ...dominoes!
This video was made by a Nitromian that goes by the alias of 10asti10 on youtube as a tribute to Nitrome reaching 100 games!
The video title tells us that there are 3776 dominoes in the video, that must have taken a lot of time to set up! We thought this video was really cool!

Thanks a lot Alex, we can see the hard work that went into that design! :D
If you have any fan art you have made about Nitrome please do send it in! We love everything we get sent especially if it is our work applied to something we have never seen before. We will feature the best, most striking and most unusual pieces in our blog.
Well Nitromians... Friday's here!
Thanks again to everyone for voting for our games in Jay is games 'Best of 2011' and helping Canary get to 1st place in the action/arcade category!
Why not join us next week as we will let you know about our next game and a very special piece of fan work that will be directly influencing another upcoming release!
Until then, have a great weekend! :D
Thanks for all of your support over at Jay is games!
Due to the votes made by our loyal fans, Canary is now the Best Browser Action/Arcade Game of 2011, Hurray!
We are really happy to see Canary win as there were some great games nominated in the same category and for people to choose ours out of the group really means a lot to us!
So thanks again to everyone for voicing your opinions on the best of 2011 and enjoy our new games throughout 2012!
You may remember this game was featured as a preview a few months back and finally we now have our game Rainbogeddon ready for you all to play!
While we have kept the main aim of munching pixels to finish each level we have focused on adding variety to the format with different monster (ghost?) types, some new level elements and most notably by the inclusion of several power ups which vastly alter the gameplay!
Drill through the level with the drill attachment, teleport from enemies with a handy placement of your teleporter, create protective bubble zones to hide in and more.
Please note that this may be the only post this week due to Tom posting this from his holls. We will resume normal blog service however next week!
Thanks goes out to everyone that voted for our games over at the Mochis! We have now got three of our games into the Mochis as finalists!
We are really happy to receive such awesome support from our fans! We will keep you up to date as to how we do in the awards!
Thanks again for playing our games and supporting us!

We hope you enjoyed the latest category in the blog 'Memory Lane' and finding out a little more trivia about Square Meal. We look forward to you joining us again next week whilst we bring you more Nitrome goodness!
Have a great weekend! :D
Welcome to our newest blog category ‘Memory Lane’. Every time we feature this in the blog we will be picking out one of our past games to reminisce about. This reminiscing might feature points of interest about the games development, initial sketches or other interesting things about the franchise as a whole.
On the front page there is a picks section (when we haven’t got a category such as winter taking its place) every time we feature something in memory lane, it will take place in one of the game slots. We will use this feature to keep the section fresh and make you aware of some of our older classics.
Our first pick for memory lane is Square Meal which was our last game before we expanded to our London based offices and …READ MORE
This is what we are proposing to have in the version 2.1 update. Some things are subject to change as the site develops and takes shape but this is what we are aiming towards and hope to achieve in 2.1

Friday is here Nitromians!
We hope that you have lots of fun battling it out in our latest update to our game Lockehorn. We’re sorry we didn’t manage to get the chance to start up our new blog category this week as we had the release of Lockehorn. Next week we will start our new blog category up and bring you much more besides!
Until then, have a Great weekend!
It’s time for our big Lockehorn (ver 2.0) update!
We have added an all new battle mode with 14 brand new arenas so grab a buddy and see who can be the rightful leader of the Elk tribe!
We have also included a new easy mode for the one player mode so those of you who found the original too hard can give it another shot! You can toggle between easy and normal modes on the level select screen so feel free if you want to up the challenge or make it a little simpler if you get stuck! We have had bags of fun testing this and hope you enjoy it as much as we have!
Lockehorn 2 Player: Click to Play!
Great news on the horizon for Lockehorn fans!
We have been working on a significant update for the game which offers a robust 2 Player versus game mode. Basically, if you look at what we did with Test Subject Arena, we will be offering something with just as much if not more substance but this time within the actual Lockehorn game.
The game will also contain an all new ‘easy mode’ and some small bug fixes. This is something that we would have liked to have included in the original release, but due to it being a winter game and that ideally tying to Christmas, it unfortunately had to be released. We are thrilled that the game is doing well enough that we are now able to add in more content. Thanks for all that keep playing the game!
Look out for this very soon!
