The future of N is as bright and colourful as the game itself. Okay, it's actually way more colourful -- the game is pretty gray. Watch for more updates on Metanet's devblog!

The new N 2.0 codebase has undergone two prior revisions, in the form of N Arcade Special Edition (available only on the Torontron and the various Winnitrons) and the N Holiday Contesque. We held an open beta and fixed a whole bunch of bugs in 2012-2013, and it's finally ready for you to enjoy! N v2.0 will be the best browser version of N — we’ve taken it as far as we can within that (somewhat limiting) framework. To take N even further, check out the plus versions, N+ and the upcoming N++. Read on!
From N, to N+
N+ will rock your world. The plus in N+ means new levels, several amazing modes of multiplayer, sweet next-gen graphics on the Xbox version and neat pixel art on the DS/PSP versions -- what more could you ask for? Click these links to find out more about N+ on Xbox360 LIVE! Arcade, and on Nintendo DS and Sony PSP. Get your hands on a copy and give it a try!
Onward to N++
N++ is going to be the last, and it will be the best. N++ follows in the tradition of N+ and improves on it; it’s a bigger, better, more fully-featured version, with everything N has, plus plus: New levels, new graphics, new sound, new game modes — N++ is an aspirational re-interpretation of the game, and we’re putting everything we have into it. We are using it as an opportunity to try out some new ideas we’ve been playing around with, to refine some existing game modes/mechanics and to finally perfect global level-sharing. N++ will fill a different niche, and allow us to explore some avenues we’re excited about that don’t work in the web version. Check out the dedicated N++ website and watch Metanet's devblog for updates!
