It's time for other adventure-fantasy games to MOO-ve over as Atari, Inc. is pleased to announce that Once Upon A Knight for PC shipped to retail stores nationwide today. Once Upon a Knight offers a milk-based economy, mother-in-laws, flying witches and secretive knights named Floyd. With the best elements of conventional real-time strategy (RTS) action and role-playing game (RPG) adventure mixed together into one highly-entertaining and humorous package, Once Upon A Knight is the ultimate RTS & RPG experience for the hardcore gamer and medieval-philes.

"Atari is proud to deliver Once Upon A Knight as we believe it's an incredibly original endeavor that will challenge both players skills and imaginations," said Nancy MacIntyre, vice president of marketing for Atari's Beverly studio. "With its humorous storyline, incredible graphics and pleasant blend of RTS and RPG, Once Upon A Knight will appeal to a large number of gamers looking for a refreshing new gaming experience."

The game transports would-be knights into a fully animated medieval fantasy world laden with treachery and nagging mothers-in-law, delivering a powerful gameplay experience while never taking itself too seriously. How can it be serious when the most valued resource in the game is milk? That's right, Once Upon A Knight's milk-based economy requires players to be kind to cows and collect a herd if they wish to build up their armies and defend the kingdom.

Developed by Reality Pump, Once Upon A Knight features over 20 missions, hundreds of quests, creepy monsters, 80 different characters, countless spells, weaponry, and online play. Up to eight chivalrous gamers can test their skills at once and battle online to discover who the ultimate medieval master will be.

Once Upon A Knight is available for PC CD-ROM at a suggested retail price of $49.95. This product has been rated 'E' for Everyone by the ESRB.
