Metanet Software Inc. is an independent game development company founded in 2001 by Mare Sheppard and Raigan Burns. It is based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

In March 2004, Metanet published a platform game called N, which received the Audience Choice Award at the Independent Games Festival in 2005, and the Audience Choice Award at the Slamdance Guerrilla Games Competition in 2006. N is currently in version 2.0. The company had planned to develop a new game, code-named "Robotology", but has since been put on indefinite hiatus. In an interview given to PC Gamer magazine, Metanet stated that Robotology will heavily feature ropes and focus on physics behavior. In early 2013, Metanet released a beta version of N 2.0 in-browser, and on May 18, 2013, released the N 2.0 proper.[1]

Metanet has also released other projects, including Office Yeti, which is, according to Metanet, a free flash single-player action/puzzle/simulation game in which players assume control of a yeti who works in an office, and also stated that the game is like: "Skool Daze + Harry the Handsome Executive + Metanet = Office Yeti".

Metanet announced that it will alternate between freeware and shareware for its upcoming releases. N+ has been released on the Xbox Live Arcade service, the Nintendo DS, and the Sony PlayStation Portable. N++ released for PS4 as a timed exclusive on 28 July 2015, and it was released via Steam on August 26, 2016.[2] It received a Nintendo Switch release on 24 May, 2018,[3] including a upcoming limited-run physical release on the console[4][5].
