Description

KnightOut is a party game for 2-4 players! Play with and against your friends in a frantic battle. Half the battle is won by building an epic castle with deadly weapons and traps. Charge into sword duels or keep your distance with long range weapons. Each game starts with both teams building a castle outfitted with cannons. Then, all hell breaks loose! Cannon balls fly, stone walls crumble, and your knight takes to the turf, slashing his sword. Once you’ve destroyed your opponent’s base and K.O. the king or queen inside, you win the round. You need three K.O.s to win the match. After each round you can rebuild your castle.

History

KnightOut will release into early access on Steam March 27 2020 followed by a full release on Steam and Nintendo Switch later this year. Development of KnightOut began in 2017. The same year KnightOut was funded through a crowdfunding campaign at Fig.co. The game reached 204% of the goal. Since then the game have been in development and a ton of new features have been added.
