PQube Games have announced Fallen Knight, a 2D action-platformer by FairPlay Studios.
In the game, players control a distant descendant of Lancelot in a futuristic setting full of robotic knights and warriors. As a noble knight in shining armor, Lancelot views killing as an absolute last resort. In gameplay terms, this means that the combat is focused on skillfully disarming your foes instead of outright slaughtering them. This mechanic also plays into the game’s multiple endings.
You can find the announcement trailer below.
