After an epic 4 year development the wait is finally over!
After an epic 4 year development the wait is finally over!
We have now launched a solution to let our users play all 130+ Nitrome Flash games on the site. The games are still technically running in Flash so they will run exactly as they did in the past. Hurray.
We are doing this with the aid of a downloadable player called Supernova. Once downloaded clicking on the games will run them as before with one small difference in that they will now appear in a new window. Roughly speaking Supernova contains it's own browser that has a Flash Player built into it and it is this that allows the games to run.
You can download it by clicking on any of the Flash games and following the download buttons.
Currently the player is Windows only (Their site says a Mac version will come …READ MORE
We are thrilled to announce that we have a brand new game that has just launched...Super Leap Day!
It is available NOW on Apple Arcade for iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and Mac!
Super Leap Day is the sequel to Leap Day and much like in that game the key hook is that there is a new level every day for you to play and it can all be played with a single tap.
You may have noticed by this point that we have not made the game in pixels this time out! We are known for making games with pixels so that may seem a little unusual. We still love pixels but we also have been looking for the right time to break the trend and try something new. It seemed a risk to apply this to a sequel but it also …READ MORE
It has been a long time since we last posted on the blog so there is a lot to get through so settle in!
Today’s big news is that we can finally tell you what we are doing to keep our flash games alive past the end of this year when flash will be removed from popular browsers.
We have behind the scenes been working with the super talented guys at Poki (https://poki.com/) to make our games playable in HTML5! This means they will remain playable in browsers the way they were designed to be played!
The first game is Bad Ice Cream which you can play TODAY by navigating to our brand new HTML5 section: www.nitrome.com/html5-games. More games will be following starting with the Bad Ice Cream sequels over the next two …READ MORE
It has been a long time since we made a post here and this probably will serve as the final post on the current website.
This post is to tell you about some important changes we are making largely in reaction to a new European law called GDPR that has came into effect (we will get to that). More importantly Nitrome has changed a lot in the last few years as we have shifted our focus from browser games to mobile and now also PC and console (I hope you guys saw that Bomb Chicken was coming to Nintendo Switch). It was about time we changed the website to reflect that and so the upshot is that there is a new more modern site in development (we will get to that too).
So what is GDPR?
Well in a nutshell it’s a la…READ MORE
we have a new game in development for Steam/PC...yes you read that right for Steam! It's called Bomb Chicken and you play as a Chicken who lays bombs rather than eggs!
You can't fly so but you can stack the bombs as high as you like to reach places as long as you do it before they all blow up!
The bombs can be kicked by walking into them which is handy if you want to tackle some of the enemies and they have a multitude of other uses too....a swiss army knife of tricks!
The game is currently on Steam Greenlight which is what we need to go through to get it onto Steam. If anyone has a steam account we would really appreaciate if you could head over to the page and vote for us here
Finally a lot of people may…READ MORE
we have been working hard behind the scenes on some new games and its time to show you some of what were upto. Check out Flat Pack which some of you might recall is following on from an idea we had many years back which we referred to as project surface.
Essentially it is a 2d game played out on the surface of a 3d object.
Well this just goes to show that given time we do go back to some things and now in Unity rather than flash this idea seemed much more possible.
For now this is just a small teaser but there are many more cool things to show on this game at a later date.
what better way to end the year than with a brand new game? Today we have launched sequel to our stretchy adventure Silly Sausage: Doggy Dessert. Set within a Dessert themed dreamland there are many new obstacles and enemies to deal with from Cherry (on the cake) bombs to Enemy Cream that you literally have to eat through. New to this version are special side challenge rooms with Dog Treat prizes to collect and we even round off the game with an epic boss fight against a wedding cake at the end.

Leap Day now has cloud saving on iOS (android is proving a little more tricky, but we are making good progress)
What does 'Cloud Saving' actually mean you ask?
-It keeps all of your Leap Day data synced to play across all of your devices, neat! Meaning you can play on one device and carry on your progress on another.
-Never lose your characters and level progress ever again. Gone are the days of broken devices and lost save date, huzzar!
In other news we are currently fixing a bunch of things in Leap Day such as:
-Cloud saving on Android,
