Last Knight Looks Pretty, Silly, Pretty Silly

Toco Games’ infinite-running jousting type game Last Knight has all the knobs on that such a game could bear – like a story mode, customisation of your knight, dynamic weather, first and third-person modes, quests, and much else besides – but most importantly it has just landed on PC. You should check out the really rather flashy trailer, below.

    Very nice! There aren’t enough horse simulators out there as is.

    • LionsPhil says:

      I’m not sure it really fits the word “simulator”.

      Although the bit at the end does seem to indicate that the player’s control is over the horse, not the knight. I now want a game mode where I have to buck various unlikable heroes into colourful giant spiders while trotting away unscathed and cackling to myself with my malevolent horse smile (see: banner image).

        What are you talking about? Adventures like this one is why I stopped riding horses.

  3. Kefren says:

    It looks fun and fast. Unfortunately one thing that puts me off is collecting coins, that always breaks my immersion in games. There’s something about it that irritates me when I play.

    • Spakkenkhrist says:

      So nothing else in the video strikes you as vaguely immersion breaking then?

      • Kefren says:

        I don’t claim that my sentiment makes sense! Within the world of the game, racing along and battling monsters while dodging obstacles makes sense. But coins floating in neat lines? Doesn’t seem to fit in with the internal logic.

    • riverman says:

      I’m with you, and it’s the reason why I hated sonic but loved supermetroid; I am too neurotic to collect “most” _____, so if I am going to collect *all* _____, I want the ______s to be varied and semi rare, and serve a purpose other than “points”

  4. RCoon says:

    Reminds me of some of those levels in crash bandicoot.

    • riverman says:

      which ones, all of the ones?

    • Barnaby says:

      I thought the exact same thing as soon as I started the video.

      And not all of the levels required the constant movement as shown in the video. Most of the time you could go at whatever pace you wanted, with small stints of having to run without stopping.

    It’s a shame we just decided the Infinite Runner genre should be free.
    Unless it’s free.

  6. Jawzer says:

    The sound in that video was bloody awful, crushed to oblivion!

  7. Drake Sigar says:

    What I do, now I do for my people and for RPS. And may they forgive me. This is my last act as your commenter. Do not be afraid. All things change. I am Drake of RPS, and I command you now… all… to buy! Buy like you’ve never bought before!

  8. cpt_freakout says:

    Sounds joust like my kind of game.

  9. Jorum says:

    Not my kind of game but I suspect my kids will love it.

  10. Gap Gen says:

    Is this a new game? I don’t remember Last Knight at all.

  11. Turkey says:

    No, thanks. I don’t want to play a game where cartoon horses stare directly into my soul and judge me.

  12. RazorGecko says:

    This seems like a fun arcade game that mostly children would enjoy.

    The thing is that if this was a mobile phone game more people would be interested in it since it naturally looks like one in my opinion.

  13. realitysconcierge says:

    My girlfriend just bought this game, but she wasn’t given a copy… Now we’re just waiting on support :(

  14. Moraven says:

    Rather have this on my Tablet.

  15. ADamnYankee says:

    No wonder that green knight was getting his butt kicked, he’s holding his lance in the middle! That’s not how you hold it!
