The lights are on
Black Knight Sword is an upcoming downloadable title from Hungarian developer Digital Reality and cult favorite Japanese team Grasshopper Manufacture. If that sounds like a strange pedigree, you're right on target. This game looks bizarre in just the way I've come to expect and want from Grasshopper's releases.
Check out the trailer below to get a glimpse at the gory, side-scrolling, slash-em-up gameplay. That looks fine enough, but what seems especially appealing about Black Knight Sword is its unique puppet theater style, with shifting backgrounds and cardboard cut-out enemies.
Take a look for yourself below and then read Jeff Cork's impressions from Gamescom to get a little more info on our hopes and concerns for this title.
It does look peculiar. I like the diarama style of the game. I'm curious if there's a real story there, or if it'll be more focused on the side-scrolling action.
Wow that actually looks really cool, and its got a microwave how sweet is that!!!
Well that was odd.
This game looks really cool but I will be waiting till summer to get it most likely.
The graphic are great for a 2d game.
Looks different. I like it!
This game would make a nice launch title for PSVita.
this looks really good, i might get it, i love weird things.
What was that weird face monster thingy
New IP looks awesome enough to warrant my purchase.
The game Rock of Ages is pretty cool too and it has puppet characters and stuff like this. The music is good too.
It just might be weird enough...to be bad
The theatrical style looks super cool, and I hope that voice is in the game.
stunningly strangely weird
