The official title is “Brutally Unfair Knytt,” but you can also call it “K.N.Y.T.T.” (Knytt Needs Your Tricky Tactics).
The mod features loads of new stuff: new item locations, a modified map, new backgrounds, B.U.T.T.O.N. characters, absurd B.U.T.T.O.N. content, a new ending, and lots of other secret goodies. Um, and there’s even an “Adult Mode” – yes, seriously. We promise that it actually has an effect on the game world. Those more perceptive of you may be able to figure it out 🙂
Working with Nifflas on this mod has been such a fun opportunity. Knytt is, quite literally, is one of my all-time favorite games. When I discovered it back in 2007, I was absolutely floored. The lonely atmosphere that Nifflas manages to conjure up with his careful balancing of graphics, music, and gameplay is one-of-a-kind. I do adore the follow-up game Knytt Stories of course, but for me Knytt will always be “the original.” Speaking as a player, the game stands as one of my formative gaming experience.
Sure, our irreverent mod kind of “spoils” that atmosphere – very intentionally so. But hey, a mod is a mod, right? To think that four years later, I’d still be living in Copenhagen, working with Nifflas himself on a mod of the game… well, it’s a little too much to process. Life is crazy!

By the way, rumor has it that there are some strange, secret photos hidden somewhere in the B.U.T.T.O.N. webspace. No comment!
Update: we should mention that Nifflas deserves the vast share of the credit here. The mod itself was his idea! All we did was add a modicum of silliness and B.U.T.T.O.N.-infused absurdity. And Nils drew the avatar graphics (and the other three B.U.T.T.O.N. characters – search for them!)
