Today, Double Fine Productions announced that it will publish Foam Sword Games’ Knights and Bikes, the crowd-funded co-op action adventure game.
First time hearing about Knights and Bikes? Here’s everything you need to know:
Story Overview –
Knights and Bikes is a co-op action adventure game set in a beautifully hand drawn 3D world. You play as our two heroines, Nessa and Demelza. Nessa is an orphan from the mainland, who has run away to the island searching for her past and her identity. Demelza is a video game-obsessed islander searching for the truth using clues from her favorite game.
Gameplay Overview –
Local Co-Op – Play through the entire game alone with AI helpers controlling the other characters in your party or have a friend join you on this mysterious adventure.
Explore – Jump on your bike and ride through the ominous wilderness areas of the island following the ever trusty beak of Captain Honkers.
Treasure – Trade collected treasure to acquire new abilities as well as upgrading those you already have by employing the various odd abilities of rescued islanders.
Quests – Complete the noble requests of the islanders to win their favor by rescuing loved ones, finding ancient relics, and solving puzzling mysteries.
Battle – Keep an eye on your health as you fight your way through treacherous dungeons using your improvised arsenal. Execute your combat abilities against possessed creatures to free them from their violent spiritual possession.
Boss Fights – Each “dungeon” will be punctuated by an intense boss fight that will test your strategy, dexterity, and preparations.
Additionally, Knights and Bikes will be playable for the first time this Saturday (November 5th) at the Day of the Devs’ show.
Knights and Bikes is set to release for PS4 and PC sometime in April 2017. Meanwhile, a new trailer was also released, you can check it out below:
