2Awesome Studio has announced today that Horned Knight will be releasing on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC this Winter, 2020. And if that’s too long of a wait for you, then you can go ahead and try out the free demo that’s available now on Steam as part of the Steam Autumn Festival.
Horned Knight is a 2D action-platformer that harkens back to the old days of gaming on a rubbish telly and without an internet connection. It looks familiar, doesn’t it? Shovel Knight, anybody?
“In Horned Knight, calculated movement and agility is key. One small misstep can lead to your demise through 32 pulse-pounding levels, offering various challenges from fireball wielding skeletons to venomous snakes, spike traps, pools of lava, and much more!”
