Ever wore your coat like a superhero cape? Then this could be for you.
Knights and Bikes is a co-op adventure game from Rex Crowle (Tearaway, LittleBigPlanet) and Moo Yu (LittleBigPlanet, Ratchet & Clank). It stars two heroines, Nessa and Demelza, on their search for the truth behind an island’s mysterious legends.
Today FoamSword announced that over the weekend, Knights and Bikes passed the 100% funding mark raising over £100,000 on Kickstarter and shall be coming to PS4.
The game takes place on Penfurzy Island, off the coast of Cornwall, a place of medieval legend, and modern tourism. We pick up the story in the 1980s when the island faces fresh challenges that can only be met by the island’s two most overlooked heroes: two young girls.
You play as Nessa and Demelza. Nessa is an outsider from the mainland, who is searching for her family’s past. Inspired by her favourite video game, Demelza is an imaginative local who believes in the island’s legend. Together they explore the island both on foot and on their bikes, searching for treasure, discovering new locations, recruiting new gang members and getting into trouble.
When their investigation awakens the malevolent spirits of history, the girls must use their unique skills, and their bikes, to save the island. They deal with the threat with bike-jousting, Frisbee-throwing, puddle-stomping and whatever other kid-like schemes they can improvise. And with each islander they rescue they learn new abilities to enable them to do more and travel further.
