Description

Under the name Nifflas, I have been developing video games since 2003. I like to focus on atmosphere and exploration, which can be seen in my games Knytt and NightSky. I enjoy working on every aspect of development but find collaborating with others much more interesting than working solo. Most recently I collaborated with Knapnok Games on a Wii U title called Affordable Space Adventures.

History

In 2003, I started to develop videogames as a sparetime hobby without any intention of doing it professionally. After having released two incredibly difficult videogames (#Modarchive Story and Operator Status) about an IRC chat channel for musicians, I decided to create something more accessible and ended up making Within a Deep Story. Though I still heavily underestimated the game's difficulty, many players ended up liking it anyway. Two releases later (Knytt and Knytt Stories), I decided to try selling my games. Since 2007 I've been developing indie games full time.
