Knytt Stories design tour

Add Comment! By David Rosen on December 9th, 2008

I just finished my second design tour video, this time about Knytt Stories. Since it doesn't use hardware acceleration I had to use my video camera to record it at a consistent framerate, so I apologize for the slight lens distortion!

I asked Nifflas how Knytt is meant to be pronounced and he said "Knytt is hard to pronounce unless you speak Swedish. I don't think you have our 'y' sound, and the K is strong and does not disappear, like it does in the word 'knit'." I ended up just going with the 'knit' pronunciation and not embarrassing myself by attempting the Swedish one :) In response to the whole video, he said "There's nothing I want you to change! I'm very honoured that you did this, not to mention that you really seem to like it a lot! Thanks again!"
