A Knight’s Quest
First announced over two years ago, A Knight’s Quest has finally resurfaced. Curve Digital and Sky9 Games have announced that it will be released this Fall in Europe and North America, and that it will cost 24.99€ / $24.99 / £19.99.
Here’s a trailer, some details, and some screenshots:
Dispatching enemies with a stylish thrust of the sword, rail-grinding across huge chasms high above tumbling waterfalls, wall-running over perilous traps or solving puzzles by controlling the elements – it’s all in a day’s work for Rusty, videogaming’s newest hero who’ll be making his debut in A Knight’s Quest.
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.
Our hero begins his adventure with just a trusty sword and basic shield, but he’ll soon unlock ‘Spirit Powers’ – spectacular abilities which have the power to transform not only himself, but also the world around him. At the tap of a button, he can harness the powers of Fire, Ice and Time to devastating effect, using them to conquer enemies in battle or solve environmental challenges.
And what environments. The game takes place in the kingdom of Regalia, but Rusty’s adventure will take him to the desert town of Zameris, high over the ice-laden Peaky Peaks and into the Cursed Swamp, among many others. Along the way, he’ll encounter a colourful cast of memorable characters which bring the world vividly to life.
Of course, not everyone is friendly. From General Windpipe to The Watcher and many more besides, peril is never too far away. And on top of the standard bone-bashing foot soldiers, grunts and minions, at key moments in the game, players will need to tackle screen-filling bosses in spectacular set pieces.
Despite its 30-hour play time, A Knight’s Quest never feels bloated. Many modern adventure games introduce all kinds of additional systems – ones which can often become fussy when players expect finesse. But A Knight’s Quest is an action adventure pure and simple. Combat is fast and fluid, and platforming a dream, with Rusty’s repertoire of acrobatic moves effortless to pull off. Playing the hero has never felt so rewarding.

North Star Digital Studios have announced that they are bringing Evolution, a turn-based strategy game adapted from the Evolution board game, to the Nintendo Switch. It will be released in early 2020 in Europe and North America.
Here’s a trailer, some details, and some pictures:
In Evolution, players selectively develop a species to survive the harsh realities of the natural world. Start from humble beginnings with an intuitive learn-while-playing tutorial and decide what traits would benefit the creatures most. Are they at risk of being eaten by predators? Horns or a Hard Shell may provide protection. Not finding enough food on each turn? The Long Neck trait makes previously inaccessible food a valuable resource.
Tinker with the nigh-infinite amount of genetic combinations while enjoying new artwork, animations, and a campaign mode with enemy A.I. bosses. Take these epic battles for survival on-the-go with the flexibility of the Nintendo Switch. Pass and play multiplayer means a whole room of friends can try their hands at building the most capable species.
For those who prefer online play, evolve on the go with cross-platform multiplayer offering opponents from around the world. Combined with a skill-based matchmaking system, fast-paced, balanced competitions are always available.
