About the game

Knytt Stories is a 2007 minimalist platformer game from Nicklas "Nifflas" Nygren. Its uniqueness is that additional levels can be installed in the game (which are essentially separate games, but on the KS platform). Themselves as new levels can be easily created by players using the built-in level editor. The game also features good ambient music and convenient controls. Plus, it's free. As a result, the game gained great popularity all over the world, more than 3000 levels were created. And even though software KS is outdated, the game still has loyal fans who continue to play it and create new levels.

How to install a new level in Knytt Stories game

LMB drag the level file onto the rabbit game screen. The level will start to load, as the load proceeds, the rabbit will jump to the right, when the load is over, the message "Finished!" and a card with the name of the level. If you need to load another level, you can drag it right after installing the previous one (you do not need to re-enter the installation menu).

Playing Techniques

- When you need to jump onto the ledge that hangs over you, then you need to jump when the knitt is in the middle of the point that makes up the diagonal (45 degrees?) With the point you need to catch on. You need to very accurately and quickly when jumping, first press to the side where the ledge is, and then in the opposite direction to catch on to it.

- When we have an umbrella and a double jump. How to jump from ledge to ledge on the ceiling. Squeeze the jump and sideways towards the ledge, fly to the middle of the ledge or a little further (holding the jump to soar), then simultaneously press the jump and umbrella buttons to remove the umbrella and jump a second time and almost immediately press in the opposite direction + up to catch on to the ledge.

- Longest side jump. We press to the side, run up and jump from the edge of the ledge. At the highest point of the jump, open the umbrella (sideways and the jump is clamped). Having steamed a little (xs how much exactly), simultaneously press the jump and close the umbrella (this is very difficult, you can try it together or on the keyboard) and at the top point again open the umbrella and soar until the end (sideways and the jump is clamped).

- The longest and highest jumps (no umbrella). There is a jump and a doublejump, if you need to jump as far as possible to the side, then you need to jump in this direction, and do doublejumps when you are on the same line (horizontal) with the target point! But if you need to jump as high as possible, then doublejump should be pressed early.

This is an experimental page dedicated to the game Knytt Stories. I would like to make a full-fledged site, on a separate domain, which will collect all the interesting information about the Knytt game universe. For this I will need help creating content and editing the English version of the site.
