Kyntt is a FREE action platform game by independent developer Nicklas “Nifflas” Nygren. It features exploration, atmosphere, and infinite cuteness. Non-violent, simple fun. It’s more of an exploration game than an action game so it bodes well for those looking for more of a casual experience.

Kyntt is a mysterious adventure, much in the vein of Out of This World or ICO, in which you explore around a strange world after being abducted and subsequently crashing. Kyntt roughly translates to “mini”, and yes, your dude is really small! It’s a simple yet bizarre and addictive game.

The backstory to the game goes something like this: A peculiar creature living on a unique planet, the Knytt (which roughly translates as “tiny creature” in Swedish) is abducted by an alien in a spaceship for no apparent reason and taken into space. Traveling through space, the UFO flies into a meteor and crashes on a nearby planet. Luckily, the Knytt and the alien survive, but the UFO is a wreck. How can the Knytt possibly find its way back home again? That’s your job. Good luck!
