The Sand Knight

  • Short Description

    • Kill your foes and power up your mech in this combat-heavy game of
      destruction and mayhem. Maneuver around the battlefield, avoiding enemy
      fire while dishing it out in kind. This game is all about tanky
      bullet-hell combat while exploring a power fantasy through various
      upgrade paths.

  • Long Description

    • Rampage through your enemies in this twin-stick kiter fighter.

      Kill your foes and power up your mech in this combat-heavy game of
      destruction and mayhem. Maneuver around the battlefield, avoiding enemy
      fire while dishing it out in kind. This game is all about tanky
      bullet-hell combat while exploring a power fantasy through various
      upgrade paths.

      The Battle for Sansil Prime
      As you battle through the game, you will defeat enemy soldiers, mechanical
      armors, and mechs in a progressive twin-stick bullet hell. Experience
      combat as a tanky mech, choosing from a variety of weapons including the
      Machine Gun, Flamethrower, Rocketlauncher, and a Sword! Throughout
      each level you will encounter story elements and boss battles as you
      collect resources to increase your mech's capabilities. Between each
      level you apply your upgrades and continue on in a highly replayable
      experience. Should your mech fall in combat, you have one final chance
      to redeem yourself on the battlefield as an evasive pilot in a classic
      1-hit death bullet hell experience.

      This game provides the player with opportunities to engage in tactical combat

      maneuvers against various AIs, strategic upgrade choices, and multiple forms of
      mid-combat resource management. Optional challenges ramp up the difficulty of

      gameplay while rewarding you with the resources to empower your mech.
      Can you master the gameplay to defeat the Militia's armies?

      This game features two modes:

    • Legend of the Sand Knight:
      A story-driven linear experience meant to ease the player into the
      game's mechanics and allow for an exciting hand-crafted adventure.

       

    • The Sand Knight Chronicles:
      Continue to battle in the war-torn world of Sansil Prime in a
      procedurally generated rogue-like where you can put your mettle to the
      test in an ever-increasing challenge mode.

      Story Summary:
      On the colony world of Sansil Prime, two militaristic groups vie for
      control of the planet after the homeworld comms went dark. The world is
      on a collision course with catastrophe, with a large population of
      colonists stuck in the middle of the conflict. Presented with an
      impossible choice, Sammi and her colleague, known only as "The
      Mercenary," set off on a mission to stop these tyrannical factions and
      free their countrymen from the oppression of evil men.
