All our Reasons to buy Saira!
« on: December 12, 2009, 03:58:55 »
Heya people!


1. It's a great game, and without purchasing you can't go everywhere, do everything, discover all of it...!

2. You want Nifflas to like you even more!

3. You have too much money on your credit card, it's too heavy in your purse!

4. You havn't splurged for several hours now!

5. Well, the season is the reason!
It's a great gift for christmas, with which you in a cordial way tell your friends
"I'm waaay more intelligent than you, blockhead, I give you this game just to make this clear,
 I will beat you at unraveling it's mysteries in NO TIME!
Yes thats the menu, wan't me to help you start it?"
 
Tell me your reasons!

1) It's pretty!

2) It has some funky menu music.

3) Nifflas is just plain deserving, and £10/$17 is nothing for a game this awesome.

4) You get to give someone a nice gift of an awesome game for $2 or so.

There are more, but they've gone missing..

Can I wish for unlimited wishes? No? Aww, well... I'll use my first wish on some cake!

Also, another reason is that, in true Nifflas style, it's so serene, and relaxing, even when
Spoiler: (click to show/hide)
that you could almost fall asleep playing it. That is, if it wasn't so gripping at the same time.

Anyway, it's 3:30am, and I'm up early tomorrow. Sleepy time for me!

Okay, I bought the game. :D
I think the biggest reason is to support Nifflas with future game development. Just by playing the first few levels, I can see how much effort he has put in to creating it, and it just makes me happy to know that the money that I am giving him will help him create other great games in the future.

Yep, you two did! (help him create more)

In, combined, 34 ways... ^_ ^
I will start stalking (oh, yes, becuase I really havn't up until now!) Nifflas and capture on camera how happy he gets when you are this considerate.

Or...
Well...

We are though facing the problem of Nifflas actually not soaking praise the way he should.
Sorry to tell on you Nifflas, but
in order not to get too saddened by flamers, I think he tries not to get too happy when complimented.
That's a shame!
And it's quite common, to shut off in that way.

My reason:

The challenge of making a custom level. That's it.

Oh, and it's finally nice to get an extra excuse to give Nifflas money, even if its only 17$.

1) Because Nifflas games are awesome
2) Because if you've played the demo you'll know it's awesome
3) Because Nifflas put a lot of work into it.
4) Because I haven't played it yet, so if you don't want to be a knytt in a pineapple suit, you'll buy it.
5) Because Beomene looks like she'll go off the deep end if you don't.
6) Because of all the great graphics
7) Because Nifflas made it
8) It's the only Nifflas game to begin with 's,' the most common starting letter in English.
Lurk more.

Saira är ett vackert lågmält spel med tung atmosfär, en fortsättning på en redan spännande spelkatalog från en ärlig spelskapare. En utmaning man inte bör missa.

http://www.blogemup.se/?p=4830



Within a Deep Forest. Knytt. Knytt Stories. Three fantastic exploration platformer type games by Nifflas. Perhaps some of my favorite games. They're also freeware. To my surprised, Nifflas released a new game just a few days ago called Saira. I haven't played much of it yet, but what I've played so far has been quite good. One thing that differentiates Saira from his previous titles is that it's being sold for $17. I have no issue with that as Nifflas is die fick-zauberer.

It is. This game is amazing!
http://www.gamebuilder.info/world/node/640



Previously teased as "Project Q", Nygren's latest 2D platform game is heavily influenced by classic puzzle adventure games and uses a new unique graphical style combining high resolution photography into a lush and mysterious world. Developed almost as much in the outdoors as indoors, Saira relies heavily on recreating a beautiful universe with up to 11 layers of high definition parallax scrolling in a world that only Nicklas could create.

http://ebook30.com/games/games/158525/saira-v1.0-by-nifflas-games.html

I'm really liking this one, the graphical style is great-- I like that he decided to diverge from the pixel style. Pixel graphics are great, but there are plenty of other styles to be explored and I love to see something new.

I thought that it was really beautiful to see trees wave in the wind and to see the world move in the background and foreground as you travel. I thought it was good that a single screen is no longer limited to the size of a single screen and that you see more of the current area as you explore.

I thought the puzzles were great. The platforming was fun and fluid. It seems like the only logical direction to go after Knytt Stories.

I played the demo for a half hour or so earlier today, and I don't know why people are having such negative reactions towards it.
I absolutely love Knytt and Knytt Stories and just about all of Niffla's games. This game was no exception. I was having a lot of fun playing it and have every intention of purchasing it.

A new nifflas game? Bought it at once.

A new Nifflas game? Excellent.

Shit, jag blev rätt hypad här. Vill dock höra lite recensioner och så om spelet innan jag skaffar det själv. Ser bra mysigt ut dock. (Som alltid när det gäller Nifflas spel) - Lobban

Most important reason for me to buy this game would be:

- Nifflas made it, so it must be good.

After that:
- It has great graphics, which is nice for a change. Adds to the atmosphere.
- Great concept in movement, giving it almost ninja-like movement. I always like that in games.
- Big variety in puzzles. You'll be assured that throughout the game you'll never play the same kind of puzzles over and over again.

Only downside would be that one environment isn't being reused all the time, which would happen in WaDF or even Knytt Stories. Not that this is a bad thing, its just something I always enjoyed in his games; clever usage of the level.
