'Fallen Knight' (ALL) Gets Dated, Shows Off Combat, Boss, Morality Mechanics - Trailer

by Rainier on April 13, 2021 @ 3:06 p.m. PDT

Fallen Knight is a side-scrolling action platformer, featuring intense sword fighting gameplay with challenging boss battles and a rich story.

Fallen Knight is a futuristic knight’s tale that lets gamers play as a descendant of the great Lancelot in King Arthur’s tale.

Players will take on the role of Lancelot the 50th in a futuristic setting, facing off against six unique enemy heroes with a dark past of their own. Lancelot must save his city from an evil organization, The Purge, that intends to reveal the ‘truth’ of what is hidden below the city. His journey will not only shine light onto the secrets hidden in the dark but also challenge what it truly means to be a knight.

Expect a Dark Souls-esque challenging experience coupled with a fast-paced sword action gameplay that will punish players for every little mistake, and reward generously with every victory.

Save the city from a deadly terrorist organization hell-bent on exposing the truth you were sworn to protect.

Fallen Knight invites you to blur lines between integrity and responsibility as you battle against old acquaintances and new enemies in this sword fighting action platformer.

With the disarm mechanic, players are given the option to kill or disarm enemies. Will you uphold or break the Knight's Code of Honour? Choosing to disarm enemies unlocks alternate endings and earns 'honour points' granting access to different upgrades and abilities.

Strike - The Black Lightning

Lightning fast ad a specialist in close quarters combat, Strike puts an end to his opponents before they even notice. Rumoured to be a former champion, and now notorious as a merciless demon, he is an elite member of enemy forces, The Purge.

Knights Duty...

Save your city from The Purge, an evil organisation that intends to reveal the ‘truth’ the knights swore an oath to protect. Uncover dark secrets as your moral fibre hangs in the balance.

Pierrot - Emo Walker

Known underground as the Code Breaker, Pierrot is a dark and sinister mystery clad in neon lights. Little is known about his past, but Pierrot is severely disabled, a result of surviving bouts of heinous torture at the hands of his foes. He now wears a suit fashioned from the Knights' very own Holy Technology, and carries an evil force within him thirsty for revenge.

Kill or Disarm?

Choose to kill or skilfully parry and disarm enemies. Exhibiting the mercy and honour expected of the Round Table is more difficult, but will earn you valuable 'honour points', and even unlock multiple alternate endings!

Juggernaut - Lord of the Blast

The Lord of the Blast? Yeah, he's exactly what he sounds like! Renouned for his heavy armour, explosive mines and devastating Blazing Shield, everything Juggernaut touches turns to dust. Not known for his cruelty or viciousness, Juggernaut appears to have an ulterior motive and hidden depths - perhaps things are not quite as simple as they seem...

Become Unstoppable...

Collect honour points to upgrade your health, abilities, and attacks. Ranking up your 'Wrath of God' meter allows players to heal more often, a crucial component if you want to survive!
