Metanet Software launches N v2.0

While the world awaits the release of Metanet Software’s N++, the Toronto indie developer came another step closer to closing the chapter on its popular N series today, launching the final update for N v2.0.

“It took eight years, but we finally managed to finish the update to N we’ve been planning since 2005,” studio co-founder Mare Sheppard tells Dork Shelf.

Three of the biggest highlights to the release of v.20 of the browser-based N include two-player local co-op, a whopping 300 new levels — including levels from N’s incarnations on other platforms (XBLA, DS, PSP) — and arcade mode.

Along with the help of Toronto studio Golden Gear Games, Metanet has also added a new UI. Other updates include improvements to N-Editor (appropriately dubbed “Ned”), anti-cheat technology, as well the addition of level sharing integration, an account system to manage user-made levels and game progress, among others.

Metanet kicked off 2013 with the public beta of v2.0 in January, as announced on its blog.

With this latest version now complete, Sheppard and co-founder Raigan Burns are working full-steam ahead on N++, and according to this short teaser, the game will be “an aspirational re-interpretation.”

N v2.0 is available to play and download for free.
