Today’s Spotlight is Puddle Knight, a colorful puzzle game by Lockpickle.
In this mud-based puzzle game, players control chivalrous knights escorting nobility through the dirty streets. Move your knights around and use their capes to create pathways for damsels, kings, and priests so they don’t get their fancy clothes dirty.
You can find the launch trailer below.
Puddle Knight is available on Windows PC and Mac (both via Steam) for $12.99.
You can find a rundown of the game (via Steam) below:
Puddle Knights is a puzzle game about wits, chivalry and mud. In the game, valiant knights of varying cape lengths assist Ladies and Bishops across mud formations that threaten to dirty their precious hems. As the motto of the Order of the Puddle Knights says: a badly designed sanitation system gives ample opportunity for heroism!
As the player, you will coordinate the movement of both the Knights and their less mud-resistant superiors with the goal of escorting them to their designated exit. To achieve this noble purpose, no sacrifice is too great: capes will tear and heads will be stepped on. However, it is your head that will be doing most of the heavy lifting in these puddle puzzles!
