Nia: Jewel Hunter

Hey all,
Here is a game we have coming out on Forest Moon - a puzzle platformer set in Egypt! It came out previously as 'Naila' (by accident) but its receiving a bunch of fixes and improvements now before release.
We had already signed with the developer but they forgot they had set the release date when they did. Anyway - its a pretty neat game, interesting idea. The rotating building stuff reminds me a bit of 'Fez'.

Developed by TvoiNet Games!

Definitely remember seeing this released before, like you said.

Why was the name of the game changed from Nia to Naila? Just wondering.

I thought Naila just sounded really (awkward)

Ah, I agree. Looking forward to Nia! Posted on the Naila thread that it looked interesting when the thread was posted.

Sweet! I was thinking about this game a few days ago, but couldn't remember the name to look it up in search for a status update.

Thanks!

Accidentally a day early or did you just want to hustle the release up?
