I played a demo of both these games and have been waiting months for their greenlit! Specially for the greenlit of Knytt, which was the first game I ever upvoted on Greenlight :)

Yeah, indeed!

Knytt Underground is fun.  I've been playing it with my kid for a while now (she's just learning to read, so I skip over and "paraphrase" the text where it isn't appropriate for a little one) and it's pretty good.  Nice tight platforming controls, very atmospheric.  The character sprites (some literally called sprites in-game, BTW) are cartoon-styled, and seem a touch out-of-place, but are expressive enough to carry the story along.  I got it when it released on Linux (it was on Desura then) and have been enjoying it since!  Being on Steam will certainly do good things for the dev, I'm sure. :)
