At Windows Central, we always try to bring you news about interesting independent games. Today, we're going to talk about a Zelda-like adventure called A Knight's Quest. According to the developer, Sky 9 Games, A Knight's Quest is a modern take on the adventure games of old. It's coming to Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4 this fall for $25.
You step into the shoes of Rusty, and your task is to dispatch enemies with a stylish thrust of the sword; rail-grind across huge chasms; wall-run over traps; and solve puzzles by controlling enemies. There are a lot more abilities like Spirit Powers to play with though.
Daring, debonair, and just a little bit daft, Rusty is a kind-hearted, but clumsy adventurer who accidentally starts a chain of events which threaten to destroy his world. In order to right his wrong, he'll need to solve mind-bending conundrums, fight challenging enemies, defeat huge bosses, and platform his way through a fantastic open world in this lavish take on classic action-adventure games.
Unlike many smaller titles, A Knight's Quest features a 30-hour playtime. It looks great and we hope that it'll be Xbox One X Enhanced when it launches in a few months. We'll keep you posted as soon as we receive a concrete release date.
