-'How does it go, again?'

-'The Knight fell from the Spire, and then died. The End.'

Good Night, Knight is a dynamic sneak-and-slash RPG that mixes procedural generation with hand-made puzzles and story! Featuring heavy-hitting deliberate combat, robust stealth mechanics, a huge selection of versatile items, and unique threatening enemies to face!


KEY FEATURES:

  • Strategic heavy-hitting combat: Skill, timing, and good positioning are key to your survival.
  • Robust stealth elements: Sneak, peek around corners, with the help of the dynamic field-of-view system and learn where enemies are patrolling to catch them off-guard. Or hack-and-slash your way through them all!
  • Procedurally generated dungeons: Randomly generated areas and a mix of hand-made puzzles make each campaign unique and interesting.
  • Huge amounts of loot to find and equip: Mix and match gear, potions, and curses to find your preferred playstyle.
  • Risk/Reward management: Choose between retreating to rest or venturing onwards for extra rewards.
  • Extra challenges: Enable many different extra challenge modifiers for even more rewards, but don't get too greedy!
  • Prepare yourself for battle: Food, ingredients, and provisions help you stay in top shape during battles. Gather resources during combat, and manage how much to spend during preparations.
  • No permadeath: Progress is saved while advancing through the campaign. And just like real life, death can still be very costly.
  • Optional Ironman mode: In this game mode, if you die, everything is lost! Only for the toughest Knights!
  • Dog petting: Pet a dog.

Here's a wee vid on it :) 

sweet, new update ^^

Gave it a go...

I just picked this up recently and just wanted to drop my two cents on it. The game is a WONDERFUL throwback to the old age of games like Link to the Past. 

What I haven't seen anyone here write is: The writing in this game is PHENOMENAL. Honestly the writing alone is worth picking this game up. I know everyone talks about the combat and controls, but the WRITING. MY GOD. 

It's so rare that I spend time chuckling while playing a game but this one did it. Well done.

I received an early access copy of this game for review purposes, big thanks to RedEmber for that!


So here is my honest, in depth review and opinion of the game so far.

It's a pretty slick little hack n slash rogue-like title, come and check it out!!

The item salesdude doesn't seem to actually be taking my materials when he sells me something, so I just bought a whooooole load of 'em in one go. Guessing that's not behaving as intended.

(+1)

Nope, that's now fixed. Thanks.

recieved a key for this game from indie boost and quickly fell in love with it. Tight controls and loved the humour. Planning on doing a full play through on stream soon 

Good Night, Knight in its current state is polished as I would definitely recommend this game to those a fan of the genre.

Even if you are not into dungeon crawlers, the art style and combat system will pull you in!

Here is my in-depth review!

review of the game!

it's still in Alpha  o . o; 

full review on a game in Alpha...

I am aware it's still in Alpha, I even mention that in the review. I also never mentioned a "full review", only "in-depth".

All versions of the games development need feedback so that developers can take that information and reference it when adding or removing features during it's development cycle. Yes the developers can work without such feedback, but with information from their audience they can bring the community together to create a game both the fans and the developer(s) want.

eyo ^^ i've been playing this since it was in pre-alpha alpha ;3

just wondering what's on the updated features ? :3

game has improved vastly since the last time i played it, i checked it out on the stable alhpa build update :3

keep up the good work!


scratch that - i opened y eyes and read the change log LOL.

thanks!

I did enjoy the game, there are some room for improvements. However, here is a gameplay highlight of the game for those who are interested in the game.

can you play this game with playstation controler?


I would love to see this on linux as well

Excellent work. Remind me.

Hope this will be available on steam

Game is releasing on GOG soon at least ;3

this game looks awesome man i'd love to play it one day hope you can keep it going strong

I would love to help out test for you!  After seeing the game play and how awesome the characters are, this is a game I'd definitely buy.

Saw this on Reddit, looks class :)

saw this on reddit, looks awesome. PM me if you are looking for contributers!

Any way to play this at the moment?

Hey. Looks good. Saw in /r/gaming

Another vote for putting it back up to download.. totally understand it being a work in progress tho. Just looks cool and I'd love to try it.

(+2)

Can I get a link to the demo?

Open source? Looking for contributors? If so, can you please PM me (not promising time, but I would like to help anyway I can; coding/testing)

Same, been a programmer for a while but looking to take up game development as a hobby. I'd love to contribute just for the experience.

(+3)

I would love to play this game, it looks very fun, but I don't see a download link. What should I do?

(+2)

Saw the spider GIF from reddit! Only an evil knight would step on such a nicy little creature's web. Poor creature

Strange but I can't find download link.

Hey, I'm working on a proper demo, it was too time consuming maintaining that one while there's so many changes going on, better have just the main game as the focus right now.

Oh it's fine. I'll wait for the next demo. ^_^

(+1)

I would like to know where I can play this? Or better yet support it?

Created an account finally. Please implement an option to disable the slow-mo killcam when finishing off the last enemy in a room, it will get old fast. I don't think I have found any more bugs that you haven't fixed like the potion ones, but my save game worked from 1.01 to 1.02, and it broke on 1.03, forcing me start a new game. I am also not able to access any key binding menu.

Hey thanks for all the feedback, right now you can skip the slow-mo by pressing Tab, I'll add a disable option too for sure. The next update will probably break saves too, but I'll avoid it as much as possible after that.

Please add some sort of notice to it, there'll be a point in time where you can remove it from your game as any changes you make will not break saves, thanks.
