N++, also known as NPLUSPLUS, is coming to Steam later this month. The game, a former PS4 exclusive, will get a full Steam launch in August 25, as announced during Gamescom.
Here at Gaming on PC we had the pleasure of testing the PC version’s beta release, and we can report that it’s an excellent conversion, with a full set of options and a level editor that will make potential PC players cry tears of joy.
In addition, the game’s price has been lowered to US$15 (it costs US$20 on PS4) in order to lower the barrier of entry.
You can see the level editor in action here:
N++ is a fast-paced, momentum-based platformer about darting around obstacles, narrowly evading enemies and collecting gold in a beautiful minimalist landscape. It’s the first N game on PC since 2004 and we’ve spent those 12 years perfecting the platformer.
N++ is all about using your momentum to complete levels and get high scores, but in this sci-fi world, there’s a slew of inadvertently homicidal enemy robots trying to prevent you from completing your goal.
Through the hand-crafted (NOT procedurally generated) levels, you’ll experience platforming at its most intense. Using only your fluid movement, you need to ‘solve’ each level and get to the exit.
In addition to the lengthy and challenging single player campaign, we’ve packed a ton of features into this one last entry in the N series including:
-2,360 hand-made levels
-Custom Levels, Level Editor & Global Level Sharing
-Leaderboards and replays for every level (even the ones you make)
-Local Co-op Mode (up to 4 players)
-Local Competitive Mode (up to 4 Players)
-63 tracks by top electronic artists
-60 color palettes to customize the game’s look
