Are you able to recognize all the games by listening only 8 seconds of one of them songs? As lovers of Nindie music, it was so much fun to create this minigame. We hope you enjoy too playing it inside 3Souls!
If you still don't know how to unlock this easter egg, it's really simple. Find any spot where the main character doesn't have a thought and press the soul 4 times. After this, a small plate will fall from the corner bottom right of the GamePad. Behind you will find some music notes. Press those and the minigame will start.

Let's warm up with the intro of the second chapter then! Here you have the intro by Suez of Nophes and the Sleepless City!!
Stay tuned tomorrow, we still have big news ;)
It's been a while we launched the first part of 3Souls, Nelesa's chapter. And really soon you will be able to continue and finish the complete game of 3Souls.
So it's time now to recap the first chapter to get ready for the coming two missing chapters!
After breaking out of her cell, discovering the Tales of her Son and 5 ML rules which explain that Suez has more to do with her imprisonment than she thought, Nelesa finally arrive to her Telescope...
Check the next video to remember the events of the ending of the Nelesa's chapter, and get ready to start soon the final two chapters!
Stay tuned tomorrow, we have more news coming this week!
In November 2014 we introduce you for the first time 3Souls with a small teaser. It was the beginning of an idea that we want to transmit to you, users, for our first game as Red Column.
Many things happended since, and many changes since we announced that we were developing the game. But very soon the wait will be over and you will be able to play the complete game.
But now that we have shared a sneak peek of the 2 missing characters, his souls, backgrounds and music styles, we would like to show you that teaser again and the main concept behind it!
"Each Soul has its own SHAPE". We want to create a game with 3 character really different from each other. Although they look really similar, them soul shape his personallity during the game with a different voice and way to describe the world.
"Each Soul FEELS different". As you have already seen, the soul has a big impact on the way they feel them world going from the sad chalk of Nelesa, to the happy brushes of Nophes and finishing in pencil with Nidemon. All this accompanied with his on music style.
"Each Soul PLAYS differently". And the last one, chaging the way the character deal with the story. The sad Nelesa more focus in platforming. The happy Nophes heading more into a puzzle adventure. And Nidemon, with his quick race against the clock!
Now its time for you to enter in the world of Mustland and meet these 3 characters and the story that link them all. We really hope you enjoy each of the aspects of the game that we have been working on to make this initial concept a reality!
Stay tuned this week, we have more news coming!
Here is the last of Nidemon's secret! Listen now the music notes that will race together with Nidemon between the walls of Paperthin Farm!
You can check other songs from the OST of 3Souls right here.
Ready to end this adventure? Really soon you will be able to play the two last chapters of the game!
Last week we introduced you finally to Nidemon and his background design. What about the gameplay this time, you would think?
Well, you will go from the slow pace adventure of Nophes to a opposite one in Nidemon.
This time the events happen on a abandoned farm: Paperthin. You have to know that the farms in Mustland isn't like the ones that you already know. You can't just hang around and doze off counting sheep. Each floor of the farm has a timer that closes the door to the next room after timing out. After crossing that yellow barrier, that you can see in the image, the timer will start counting down. Once the door locks shut, the flowers will get your mask!
So, don't dawdle! clock is ticking!
We can finally introduce you the third and last character of this story! His name is Nidemon and his grey soul reflect... well, you need to play the game to find out ;).
We do can tell you, that as the sadness of Nelesa was reflected on the style of the background as Chalk, and the happiness of Nophes was printed as colorfull brushes of paint... Nidemon soul will also be reflected on the design of his chapter, making the game in his case look like a full drawing of pencil in black and white.
So here you can finally see for the first time the look of Nidemon chapter: Paperthin Farm!.
In the last two week we spoke about how the main soul of the Ánima define the backgrounds designs of the game as well as the gameplay itself. Well, this doesnt stop here!
The music notes from Nelesa accompanied in her saddness, but as you already know Nophes has a different main soul, so this will also change the tone of the music.
Stay tuned for the week! We will start showing you for the first time background style, gameplay and music from Nidemon, the third chapter!. In the meantime, enjoy the first track of Nophes: Sleepless City!
Last week we mention how the stages from Nelesa and Nophes use different styles (chalk versus brush) and this is because each Ánima have a different soul. Nelesa is sad Ánima and Nophes is a happy one.
But this is not only reflected on them levels... it will also change the gameplay for each chapter!
While the first chapter was focus on a puzzle/platformer gameplay, this is more focus on a puzzle/adventure one! Here is when we introduce the new elements: the items!
Nophes is a happy ML Guard, which is a kind of a police/detective from the world of Mustland that make sure that everyone obey the ML-Rules to keep the order. He will be searching for another Ánima, who has broken 2 ML-Rules and you will be there to help him out.
During this chapter then, you will find different items, to get to another places, and to get other new items.
You can check for example in this picture the main shop of Sleepless City, where they will offer you different items that will help you in your journey.
This is so different to Nelesa's chapter that you can't even die in this chapter!! (well... I would be careful anyway, Sleepless City can be dangerous sometimes).
Ready to put your detective cap on?
Nophes will be the chapter that follow the Nelesas's one and the events from him will actually happened before the ones in Nelesa.
Those events will take place on the the luminous streets of Sleepless City, a city that unlike the Moon Prison, which it was seen by Nelesa as a drawing in a board with chalk, this will be seen by Nophes as a colorful drawing in a canvas with brushes. Because... every Ánima has a different soul... and sees the world in a different way!
We share with you today the most important building on Nophes chapter: the Big Bang Fun Club!... Do not get confuse with the famous one full of green creatures! ;-)
Let's celebrate the 1 year anniversary of the launch of the first chapter of 3Souls with a big sale!
50% off now available on Nintendo eShop for America, Europe and Oceania for one week!
You can buy right now 3Souls for only €1.80 / £1.60 / $1.95 and start getting ready for the coming soon free update with the last 2 chapter of the game!
The Memory Palace is a big part of the main story that take place in 3Souls. Although they are not essencial, those memories will help you to understand better the story and each of the characters.
In the chapter that is now available, Nelesa, she will tell us a story that occurred before the ML-Rules existed. This story is called "Tales of My Son".
Every day during this week, we will invite you to discover this memories and help you to find them on the first episodes of Mustland. Those memories will be always next to the beds of thorns...
Here is a walkthrough of where to find them:
Today we can confirm that Barry Dunne from Nintendo Impact Gaming!, will collaborate on the last chapter of 3Souls with his voice, bringing Nidemon to live!
We would like to thanks Barry for this great collaboration and his support from his channel always!
Check on the next video, the last gameplay from Nintendo Impact Gaming!, showing the Co-op mode from the demo already available on eShop.
Last week we talked about the Vault in the menu, but that will not be the only update on the menus of the game.
We will update to a better and more detailed backgrounds for the menu system of the game.
Take a look here to the comparison with the menus before starting a new game and while you are playing the Nelesa's chapter
Those update as the artworks of the ending videos are made by our friend Luckytime!
An small but important detail. As you can see on the new menu, the option "Play Episodes" is not there anymore.
This is because the episodic format will disappear after the future update and the game will be a standalone game which will tell the story of 3 different Ánimas.
We will reffer to each part of the game as chapters, and you will be able to select which chapter to play once you finish the full game.
This would be really helpful to search for those collectibles that you missed the first time that you played (like Nindie songs or Memories).
This week we will talk about the Vault and the coming changes on it.
1.- First, a new element on the top right corner: porcentage of the total of the game compleated. This will give you a better idea of how much are you missing from the entire game.
The game has different collectibles: ML-Rules and Memories (Tales). Those will help you to understand better the story and the world of Mustland. But it will also help you to unlock parts on the Vault.
For example, to unlock the music from one chapter, you will have to find all the Memories from that chapter. Then, to unlock the ending video of one chapter, first you need to finish of course that chapter, but with all the ML-Rules of that chapter.
2.- ML-Rules: there is a total of 13 ML-Rules written in this story, althought in the world of Mustland there is place for 16. Our character knew the normal 8 rules written a long time ago, but nothing about the 5 new ones that they will find.
You will find then 5 ML-Rules with Nelesa, 4 with Nophes and the last 4 with Nidemon.
3.- Memory Palace: each of the chapters have memories of the Ánimas hidden around mustland. In the case of Nelesa, those memories will tell you a story about her son. You can find those thoughts sometimes near to the beds of thorns around the Moon Prison. With a total of 6, those memories are called: "Tales of My Son".
The new chapters will have also hidden memories around the world of Mustland (6 for Nophes and 5 for Nidemon). We can reveal today the titles of those memories!
The new feature announced last week will not be the only change on the game after the big update coming with the 2 new chapters. We will also change the camera position during the whole game.
Before, the camera followed the player all the time, and his position would be always the center of the screen. This sometimes bring to some problems when the player is on the limits of the stage, making half of the screen with info that they dont need and the other half missing important info like for example platforms.
With this change, the player will be mostly still in the middle, but on the limits it will not happend anymore, offering a better gameplay to the player with this new update.
This change, for example, will let you enjoy the whole Sleepless City, in one of the two coming chapters, Nophes.
Later this year we will launch a free update that will include the chapters of Nophes and Nidemon, the other two Ánimas of the game.
But on this update, we will include as well some other changes on the gameplay to make a better experience of the game.
One of them will be a requested feature by the users: to be able to look up and down at any time on the game.
We hope with these inclusions to create a better game experience for everybody!
We have some big news about 3Souls. After a lot of thoughts, we have decided that instead of a DLC, the chapter 2 and 3 will come in a free update!
This means that if you buy the game, which include the chapter 1 of Nelesa, you will receive the chapter 2 and 3 in a free update once they are ready to launch.
We are working really hard on those chapters, and it's taking longer than we first planned. For this reason we would like to compensate all the players that are waiting, with the news that once we have ready the chapters, they will receive them as a free update. Our goal is to launch them in first half of 2017 ;-).
But this is not all of it. We would love to share our first project with as many people as possible, so now you can get the game with the first chapter for half of the price during Xmas!
