[[caption-width-right:265:The Knytt can climb, and jump. And walk. ([[SuperDrowningSkills But not swim.]])]]

An incredibly relaxing {{Freeware}} platform game by Creator/{{Nifflas}}, the creator of ''VideoGame/WithinADeepForest'' and ''VideoGame/KnyttStories''. The game combines basic gameplay elements of the ''VideoGame/{{ICO}}'' series with the drowsy atmosphere of ''VideoGame/{{Creatures}}'', only cuter, and shorter, and happier. And with really sweet retro graphics. And made of breathtaking SceneryPorn.

The story is quite simple: The Knytt, a weird little creature, gets abducted from his native planet by an alien. However, before reaching its supposed destination, the alien's ship crashes against an astroid, and the alien makes an emergency landing on a nearby planet. If he ever wants to get home again, the Knytt must help the alien recover the parts of the spaceship which has been scattered all over the strange planet.

The strange little world is a gorgeous, diverse maze full of little houses and curious little critters. Some want to attack the Knytt, whose only power is jumping -- it can't fight or defend itself. Some just live their own little lives while the Knytt walks by.

The game can be finished in less than an hour, but its non-linearity gives it a high ReplayValue. There are also a few hidden shortcuts and massive bonus area too, if you know where to look. You'll probably want to play it a few times over. With a nice cup of tea.

* BubblyClouds: At the very top of the map.
* CheatCode: Two secret locations may be used to obtain a code.

* ShoutOut:
** The word "Knytt" is from a character in ''Vem ska trösta Knyttet'' (''Who Will Comfort Toffle?'') by [[Literature/TheMoomins Tove Jansson]].
** One area resembles the castle from ''VideoGame/{{ICO}}'', which ''Knytt'' is heavily based on.
** Knytt's home turns is very similar to, if not outright being, the same area as the tutorial level in another of Nifflas's games, WithinADeepForest.
* SpikesOfDoom: The more eastern areas have golden spikes that, like liquid, will kill you on contact. Greener spikes appear at the very bottom of the map as well, leading to tricky platforming in the optional bonus area.
* SpinOff: The game's opening sequence appeared in the tutorial level of ''VideoGame/WithinADeepForest'' originally.
* SuperDrowningSkills: If the Knytt touches ''any'' liquid, it dies.
* UndergroundLevel: Almost the entire game other than the surface and BubblyClouds areas.

* WaveMotionGun: [[spoiler:Das Magdenburska Martian Deathray Pantzer Crawler.]]
* WallCrawl/WallJump: The Knytt's main power.
