Knytt Stories. From Nifflas, the maker of the lovely and fiendishly difficult Within a Deep Forest, and the lovely and relaxing Knytt comes another simple platform game, this one user-modifiable. (Previously)

Why? Why just as the semester is starting? why, damnit, why?

Oh sweet, I've been waiting for this! The last Nifflas thread turned me on to Knytt, Within a Deep Forest, and Cave Story (not a Nifflas game, but mentioned as an influence) - three of the most fun, simple platform games I've played in a long time.

It's too bad that, I, like Dismas, desperately can't be distracted for the next few weeks. DAMN YOU NIFFLAS

If you're going to cross-post from jayisgames, shouldn't you include a Via?

There's been a countdown timer on Nifflas site for a while now; CrunchyFrog didn't necessarily cross post from anywhere.

Oh boy! I was waiting for this. I've played Knytt but not WADF. Can't wait to play this tonight... wait, I have to go to a party or something... god damn it! Tomorrow then.

So serene and beautiful. Thanks for the heads up CrunchyFrog!

SmileyChewtrain, you should definitely try Seiklus if you haven't yet, it is very much like those games you mentioned and it's also free (download link)

Glow Bucket- I've played a bit of Seiklus, but it was right on the tail end of playing the aforementioned three games and I think I got unfortunately distracted. Now that some time has passed, I'll definitely check it out! I remember it being pretty great, and I think I've read that it was a big influence on Nifflas and his "mood" platforms.
