About the Knytt Experiment, I was thinking about just that ever since Knytt Stories came out. It just didn't seem quite like Nifflas' style. It seemed like he was trying to catter, even if just a bit, to the wishes of the people that wanted more 'action' in his games. They shouldn't be playing those games to begin with, really, if they were looking for 'action'.

I'm personally glad he cancelled KE. Hopefully his next games will retain the WADF and Knytt personalities. Screw what the audience thinks. If you're gonna make a free game, you make it anyway you want.

RE: the KE news. I'm quite thankful for that. Knytt is the only game of his I like, KS lost the atmosphere for me. There (or at least since I last checked) hasn't been a map as expansive and fun to explore as Knytt 1's.

Chances are I wouldn't have liked KE or anything else he brings unless it's as good as Knytt 1 on every level it surpassed other games as.
