What if a clumsy adventurer makes a huge mistake, which puts his world into grave danger? The answer to this question is A Knight’s Quest.
„Dispatching enemies with a stylish thrust of the sword, rail-grinding across huge chasms high above tumbling waterfalls, wall-running over perilous traps or solving puzzles by controlling the elements—it’s all in a day’s work for Rusty, video gaming’s newest hero who’ll be making his debut in the epic adventure A Knight’s Quest.
Daring, debonair, and just a little bit daft, Rusty is a kind-hearted, but clumsy adventurer who accidentally starts a chain of events which threaten to destroy his world. To right his wrongs, he’ll need to solve mind-bending conundrums, fight challenging enemies, defeat huge bosses and platform his way through a fantastic open world in this lavish take on classic action-adventure games.
Funny, fresh and genuinely breathtaking, it’s a thoroughly modern take on classic adventures of old, as players will discover when it launches,” publisher Curve Digital’s press release says. There are some bold statements to be found here, so it better prove it, or it might be another faceplanting title this year.
The game, which has a significantly mobile-ish art style, was announced by Curve Digital on Twitter. (That is a unique approach, we’ll give the publisher that.) The developer is the team known as Sky9 Games. The twist here is that A Knight’s Quest (which is set to be about thirty hours long) is already set to launch this autumn on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. The price will be 25 EUR/25 USD/20 GBP. The game already got a gameplay trailer, so you can decide easier whether you should keep half an eye on it, or to shrug and move on to the next interesting thing. Let’s take a look at it:
