If you’re the broody type, the story of a dad making a game with his daughter’s character designs might warm the cockles of your heart, and you’d fall over your big lousy gloopy soft self as you stumble giggling to buy Super Chibi Knight [official site].
If you’re a steely sort, someone who prefers their game news stories to revolve around teeth and the blunt-forceful removal of teeth, you might be interested to know that the developer dad in question (not to be confused with a game dad) was one of the folks behind Abobo’s Big Adventure and several old Newgrounds games you may remember.
Super Chibi Knight is a hacky, slashy, jumpy, platformery, action-RPGy, adventurey sort of a game, made by dad Nick Pasto and daughter Bella. Her side’s story, concept art, and voice acting, which he makes into the game. Supported by a Kickstarter in February 2014, it’s the sequel to browser game Chibi Knight, which you can still play for free to get a feel for what it’s about.
Super Chibi Knight is out on Steam for £6.29. Here, have a launch trailer:
