If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind game that’s steeped in Philippine and Greek mythology, then we highly recommend the upcoming indie title Good Knight. Developed by Team Good Knight and published by Doublethink Games, Good Knight is a Filipino one-button bullet hell game that has an original metal soundtrack.
Besides that, the game is a wonderful blend of different genres – shooter, rhythm, arcade, retro, and more.
Using Philippine horror and literature along with Greek mythology, you control a Spanish knight as he traverses through bullet hell. It’s also worth noting that Good Knight is heavily inspired by Dante’s Inferno.
The gameplay is easy in the sense that you only have to press one button. With this sole button, you will be given the ability to attack, turn around, speed down, and more.
You are also tasked with just one job, and that is to survive bullet hell. Now, this latter part isn’t so easy. You will literally be in bullet hell i.e. you have to dodge and survive a stream of bullets heading your way.
You don’t have to do everything alone, though. Good Knight allows up to four players, and all four of you have to dodge the bullets. Sounds stressful, yet fun.
Good Knight has won several awards in the Philippines, such as ‘Best Indie Game’ at the Electronic Sports and Gaming Summit (ESGS) 2019. It’s currently scheduled for release on Q4 2020 according to its Steam page, and a mobile and Switch version is planned for 2021.
