Today’s Niche Spotlight is Fight Knight, a retro-inspired mixture of grid-based dungeon crawling and first-person brawling by Team Sorcerobe.
Ascend a dark tower full of evil monsters as an armor-clad pugilistic paladin. Solve puzzles, interact with others exploring the tower, and fight the tower’s dark denizens with a unique combat system that blends traditional grid-based movement with fast-paced brawling action. Customize your knight with new gauntlets and a variety of signature moves. You can find the launch trailer below.
Fight Knight is available on Windows PC via Steam for $19.99.
You can find a rundown (via Steam) below:
THE TOWER ascends without warning. It consumes the land it rises from, growing ever higher with each appearance. Those trapped within the Tower’s shadow are cursed to live in an eternal night… until, before long, it vanishes as quick as it came. The wise can predict its next appearance, and fools seek the treasures within. But the Tower is full of the twisted forms of the people and places it has consumed in its many ascents, preventing the brave and the ignorant alike from climbing its cursed halls. Surely some great reward awaits the one who reaches the top! But with such powerful and evil sorcery afoot, who could possibly reach its summit?
FIGHT KNIGHT is a mix between a first person dungeon crawler and a high speed action game. Climb through the many unique floors of the Tower and get to know friend and foe alike! Solve puzzles, collect artifacts, and help FIGHT KNIGHT grow in power. Encounters take place in real time, through grid-based melee combat. Wits and reflexes will pave your way to victory. Will YOU master the Tower and those who wait within?
