Last Knight is over-the-top jousting action in a beautiful brutal fantasy world! It comes with bucketloads of content and is inspired by outstanding third-person platformers like Crash Bandicoot.

Sketchfab Last Knight Models

Steam now supports Sketchfab which is a good reason to show off all the Last Knight models I put up there over the time:

The stylized (stylized even more) castle and some landscape you see in the Rogue Rider 3D world map:
https://sketchfab.com/models/858dedb5283e4d209abe76a6d904fb83

A bucket smashed to a Smashtastic, you know when you ram a lance real hard in the center of a horned bucket:

This is the package of the official Last Knight cereals. Unfortunately they never came to be, maybe because they are not made exactly for the taste of humans.

The high poly knight and horse riding on and on and on and on and...
https://sketchfab.com/models/4de5daefe8d145fbb8ad168718093636

A whole low poly stylized Last Knight world. As you can see the world is not completely flat. It is also the same setup you see in the intro trailer, when you set it to first person you can fly through it yourself.
https://sketchfab.com/models/4629b972551c4faf89e6dead5f5fe705

Here are all the 7 wonders of the world. You probably have not found them all in game yet because the Rogue Rider mode is darn hard. In case you don't want to get spoiled here better look away quickly.

Looks like this Steam Sketchfab support is limited so there a now only 5 wonders of the world or you click these 2 links:

The update I uploaded yesterday ends the Easter Event and fixes mushrooms disappearing. It hopefully also fixes a rare issue with loading story levels.

Sad that you can't eat any Last Knight cereals? Well, you can atleast 3D print some Last Knight merchandise yourself! For free! (3D printer required)

Easter Event

Easter is almost upon on us this means it is time to grab your bunny mask and joust some evil Easter bunnies or anything that could be one!
Of course you also need to shove a lot of eggs turn your throat til you explode. Wait, no, just enough so you don't starve.



Here is the introduction to the Easter event:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_CoKCSQGDKY

In case you have not found a Bunny mask yet you better get going and find one. Luckily in this Easter event they are much easier to find, just look out for some giant Knight Suprise TM eggs.

Here is a small sample of the randomly generated bunny masks:


If you now want one for your Easter decoration or just to paint something more exciting then a odd distorted spherical thingy you can print this bunny head with your 3d printer: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:633685 No 3d printer? Don't worry, in a couple of years everyone has one.

While the Easter event is going on you can also search for eggs in the menus which change things in various ways. Just click on them to crack them open and again to deactivate them.

This update has a couple of changes requested in the forum:

- Easter event
- AZERTY french keyboard layout support
- Right Thumbstick press is now a 3rd person camera cycle button (With a keyboard you can now cycle through with pressing K)
- Fixed Water Buckets and Lava Buckets being swapped in the stats screen
tl;dr:
Eat bunny masks, wear eggs, hug evil Easter bunnies

Happy Easter! (in advance)

“Its just damn fun. That is why we play games, right?”

“By the end of a run-through you will be left breathless and your brain buzzing as it slows back down to reality.”

Lista de características

  • OVER-THE-TOP JOUSTING! - Countless enemies had been shot, hacked and slashed in the history of games. Now it is time to ram a wooden lance in some gut, send your foes flying, and watch them bite the dust! Body parts ripping off, ragdoll horse physics, and destructive environments included.
  • A BEAUTIFUL BRUTAL WORLD – Dive into a magical fantasy world full of treasures and adventures! Don't be fooled by the cartoony looks: here, simply bumping into a silly wooden fence spells a sudden end to your hero's life. If you fancy dying in a more heroic way, how about getting swallowed by a giant toad, falling into a lava pit, exploding from eating too much turkey, getting impaled by a Hitler Snowman, or just getting lit on fire by a dragon!
  • BUCKETLOADS OF CONTENT – Divided into three major parts - the Story Mode, the Endless Journey Mode and the Rogue Rider Mode - this game has a lot to offer and there is always something new to accomplish, find, or unlock. Power-ups, characters, view modes, mutators, quests, game mode variations, randomly generated hats, you name it! Did you ever wish to be a skeleton king with a fancy wig riding over rainbows on a flower-pooping pink unicorn? It's all up to you in this game!
  • INSPIRED BY CRASH BANDICOOT – Good third-person platformers were always hard to find on PC, when consoles sport countless shining examples: the first Crash Bandicoot titles, Spyro, Ratchet & Clank, and Super Mario were all a big inspiration for Last Knight. This game kicks it up a notch with non-stop jousting action, no-health instant death, procedurally-generated worlds, as well as custom-crafted levels with Knightmare levels in-between. To top it off, the new Rogue Rider Mode pushes it all into a rogue-like direction, and if you don't like third-person view, try playing in first-person mode!

Acerca de este juego

Last Knight is a unique genre mix that combines platforming, action-packed riding
and ragdoll physics driven jousting! It is fast-paced action in a never ending randomly generated Unreal Engine powered fantasy world!

The story mode put it's player in control of a squire on its way of becoming a knight. But before he can prove himself, events of epic proportions make him the last hope for the kingdom! On his heroic adventure he will have to fight the horned bucket heads and oversized hungry creatures. He will have to get through a wide range of dangerous environments as well as his own Knightmares. But beside the story there is much more. Various game modes let you adventure through always different never ending generated worlds filled with riches and dangers. On your journeys you will also find quests that will take each of the characters on different missions in the hunt for fame and glory as well as gold and chivalry. Gold can be spent on fancy power ups, while chivalry can unlock world bending mutators and different view modes like the intense first person view. Cutting-edge features like a fully dynamic randomized weather system and a collision system that can alter basically everything of the world geometry make this game even more over the top.

Features:
  • A full-fledged adventure in the story mode
  • Randomly generated world in the different endless modes
  • Your own adventure in a generated kingdom in the Rogue Rider Adventure mode
  • Wide range of different fantasy environments

A very underlooked game, almost 3 years later I decided to write what I really feel about it.

It's a really enjoyable rumner game, and a sadly underlooked one.

Provides a good amount of challenge and unlockables
The graphics are the best in the runner genre
theres a lot of comedic elements
the gameplay is easy to just pick up and just play but hard to fully master
there's a lot of collectibles, hats to be found.
there's a couple of game modes even a story mode
the port is a solid one doesn't feel like mobile at all
the music is great and chilly
map overall has enough variety, snow terrain, lava terrain, forest terrain etc

A great fun and casual game to play specially after much shooting :D

Easily recommend for a short price like this, it can provide plus 10 hrs of gameplay.

If you've ever played games like Temple Run or even Crash Bandicoot levels where you need to keep moving, you'll get the gist pretty quick. We soon discovered that you can choose a random camera mode so we decided to have a challenge to see who could win. Enjoy yourself! 9 out of 10!

This game is fun.
The characters look interesting, not only the player's character but also the monsters.
Easy to control with both keyboard mouse and controller.
Music gives the sense of speed and shapes the knight's image.

However, the launching load time is way too long than acceptable.
(Imagine loading some cuties which have less faces/ verticals/ edges in the models takes longer than those you can see in Dark Soul, Shadow of Mordor.)
Maybe bcoz of the shadings?
It's kind of wasting the graphic loads on the background and lights.
It quits after playing a while with "very low" visual quality setting.
When other games with higher requirements don't, I don't quite understand this.

Besides, although the basic gameplay is good, I guess there is still space for more - more than "Temple Run" with a horse, a lance and without those boost items. Maybe I'm still at the "beginning" of the story mode?

It would be a yes for recommendation of some of the things above can be fixed, especially the launching part.

Really good "light" game that you will fire up for a brief session (just to notice after the session that it was anything but brief). Multiple game modes, my favourites are; story to get you started, endless to get your skill level up a bit & hunt those quest&achievements, rogue rider mode to test your skills & obviously hunt achievements. This is one of those games that you can feel the love poured into making them while you play.

+Fun game to hunt achievements.
+Lancing is really satisfying (physics-based, enemies will fly far if you hit them right etc.)
+Humour is good
+Price is really fair for many hours of fun you will get out of it!

-There could be more things explained, you have to figure some things for yourself (obviously not that of a big deal though)

A fun endless runner with a unique style. This is a much under-represented genre on Steam and for me it is breath of fresh air. Some of us are a bit over tablets and the pay to win rubbish and would rather play a good casual games on the couch with no strings attached. Graphic style, level themes, camera effects, slow-mo replays and music are all great in big picture. Controls on the XBox controller are tight. Though it is not quite as polished as the promotional videos suggest does, it gets quite tricky and frustrating at times and a little tedious after a while. All said, if you're looking for something a little different on PC, then its hard not to recommend this game.

this game is hilarious! if you like humorous things at all, its a must buy considering the price. I picked it up on sale because I was on the fence, but seriously well worth its regular price, seems almost too low for a game of this calibur. do not let its ultra low price fool you. its definitely one unique ride you don't want to miss, fun for all ages, and I'm 46!

Extremely fun and addicting endless runner with plenty of games modes, upgrades, unlockables, and quests to keep you occupied. Easy to pick up, hard to master. Wasn't really expecting much going into it if we're being honest, but I was surprised at the amount of content and the quality of the game in general. The jousting mechanic is extremely fun and is a major reason you'll keep coming back. When you defeat someone or are defeated, it'll do a cool slow-mo effect like when you die in GTA or a similar game. It's always fun to watch slow-mo ragdoll physics, especially with a horse involved this time. The game's cheap, pick it up and have some fun.

Idea simple pero muy entretenida y con gran rejugabilidad.

Tiene 3 modos de juego:
> Historia - A mi se me ha hecho excesivamente corta, me lo he tomado más como un tutorial.
Aunque esconde alguna sorpresa como poder variar el punto de vista del jinete para emprender las carreras.
> Sin fin - Se generan los mapas de forma aleatoria y sin tregua pasas de un escenario a otro y otro y otro...
Uno de los puntos fuertes del juego. Cada carrera de obstaculos es distinta y nunca sabrás lo que hay a la vuelta de cada arbol.
> Aventura - Dentro de unos límites, puedes ir eligiendo el siguiente escenario hasta completar el mundo creado de forma aleatoria.
Aún se está trabajando en este modo. Muy prometedor.

Existen multitud de retos con los que ir obteniendo puntuación para desbloquear nuevo contenido, tanto escenarios como artefactos y elementos para personalizar a nuestro jinete,

Sin ser un juego al que dedicar un par de horas seguidas sí es recomendable para cortas sesiones de vicio.
Y lo dicho, siempre con un escenario nuevo.

Last Knight es un juego en el que controlas a un caballero montado a caballo, armado de su lanza de justa. El objetivo es avanzar por un nivel interminable y generado automáticamente a medida que vas jugando, esquivando los obstáculos, derrotando en una justa a otros caballeros, acabando con los diferentes animales que trataran de hacerte caer de tu caballo, y recogiendo los cofres y las monedas de oro en el camino.

La idea es simple, y de hecho el juego básicamente es eso, correr y aguantar todo el tiempo posible sin morir. Parece incluso algo repetitivo, pero es muy adictivo. El juego tiene muchísimo contenido con tres modos principales, y éstos se subdividen en otros modos de juego mas, multiplicando así todos los modos diferentes que tiene el juego. Con el oro que se recolecte en el juego, se pueden desbloquear otros caballeros con sus respectivos caballos y lanzas, y durante el modo "endless" se pueden encontrar distintas misiones que realizar, específicas para cada caballero. Las misiones no son tan sencillas, pero tampoco son imposibles. Diría que ellas dependen 50% de la habilidad del jugador, y otro 50% de suerte en la generación del nivel correspondiente.

Uno de mis puntos favoritos es que los personajes no son de una pieza, es decir, si derrotas a un caballero en una justa, y lo haces en el punto correcto, es probable que su cabeza salga volando por los aires, o que al caer del caballo, choque con una roca y su cuerpo se despedace y se esparza por el piso.

Cada cierto número de misiones cumplidas, se van desbloqueando mutaciones para el caballero, como poder jugar con un caballero sin cabeza, o poder modificar el tamaño de la cabeza a gusto del jugador. Cambiar la vista de tercera persona, a primera persona, o vista desde arriba, y muchísimas otras mutaciones.

Existe un modo en el que no sólo debemos preocuparnos de los enemigos y los obstáculos, sino que también de recoger comida para que nuestro caballero y nuestro caballo no se mueran de hambre, pero tener precaución de no recoger demasiada o éstos explotarán. Cada comida es específica a uno de los dos, así que hay que estar atento a esto también.

Eso no es todo, el juego ofrece un buen número de "logros" que desbloquear, y no son los típicos "termina el tutorial", sino que requieren algo de habilidad y suerte, y con cada desbloqueo, un poco de satisfacción personal por haberlo obtenido. Y con cada actualización que el juego tiene, llegan nuevos modos de juego con sus respectivos logros especiales.

El juego ha evolucionado muchísimo desde Early Access hasta el lanzamiento final, y el creador del juego dice que seguirá añadiendo contenido nuevo, por lo que no puedo más que recomendar al 100% este juego, es muy barato y tiene muchísimo mas contenido que otros juegos de igual o mayor valor. Las gráficas son agradables, la música es correcta, y lo mas importante, la jugabilidad es muy buena.

This game is actually suprisingly fun to play on the PC. While I understand it is a mobile port, the added content, improved graphics, and friendly Dev all make it worth while.

It is a nice casual game to pick up and play for 15-30 min during breaks.

One thing to watch out for though is how often the screen shakes. It shakes a lot to simulate riding a horse. Something I found to counter this shaking is to actually ride a real horse while playing the game. Works great.

This. Game. Is. Awesome!
Seriously. There isn't much to the game overall. You are a knight in armor on a horse with a lance, and you basically ride, jump, and joust your way through various levels while avoiding obstacles in your way (or smashing into/through them). There are a lot of game modes including an actual campaign, endless riding, and so on, plenty of upgrades and unlocks, quests, lots of little tweaks and skins, etc...

On the surface, this game seems overly simple, but it is really just pure, simple fun. The physics in the game provide lots of hilarious screenshots, especially the slow motion death scenes, which are abundant and cool looking (both yours and the deaths of your enemies).

This is definitely a game you can play over and over, for brief blasts (30 minutes) or for extended play periods.

This review probably doesn't do justice to how much fun this game really is, but I definitely recommend this one highly. You will appreciate it whimsy and its gameplay.

8 out 10 for good, pure, fast paced fun.

Fantastic little game that develops a simple idea with a surprisingly good result: it's funny, addictive, challenging, with sense of humour, good sounds and graphics, different game modes, rogue-like endless runs, customizable heroes, crazy quests, etc.

It's in early access yet but I can't wait to see the final release. Besides, many interesting extra features might be added, it has enormous potential for that, and I hope the developer will add them sooner or later.

Excellent game. PLAY IT!

Last Knight is a runner game frequently compared to Temple Run but honestly feels alot more like a game based around the Warthog level in Crash Bandicoot 1. There is a mode that allows endless running but there is also a story mode and an addictive rougelike mode. Hats, power ups and a food system offer a surprising amount of content for what appears to be just another runner. It is a good looking game running in the Unreal engine and has tons of charm. Accidentally making your rider eat a giant meat stacked burger and then fearing the sight of floating chicken wings is definitely a unique and rather comedic experience.

The sound effects and music are very well done and perfectly fit the theme of the game. Most importantly controls are tight and responsive making moments when a rival rider or monster knock you off your horse feel fair. The rag doll effects when you best your foes is a very enjoyable effect that never gets old. Though this is not the kind of games you would play for hours on end, it's more of a go to game when you have a bit of spare time and want a simple yet challenging gaming session.

This is one of the very few Early Access games that I am glad I supported, friendly dev that is open to suggestions and a released product that feels complete and polished. If you are one of those people that stare at your Steam list wondering what you should play I can think of no better go to game than Last Knight Rouge Rider Edition.

Transitioning mobile games to PC is a fickle thing. Going from a platform primarily played in short bursts while waiting in line or for a call, to one that people tend to set aside hours of their time to play something more substantial, often leaves mobile to PC ports feeling watered down; too shallow to keep the players interest when there is so much else to play and better left on the platform they originated on. This isn't to say I'm in any way opposed to mobile games coming to PC, but the way games are approached on the two different platforms is so different that it's often hard to bring one to the other without losing something along the way.

Last Knight fits into all of this for the fact of it being an endless runner, a genre often cited to have began with Canabalt but was certainly popularized with mobile games like Jetpack Joyride and Temple Run. Toco Games aren't looking to make just another runner however. Instead, there's a clear vision at the core of Last Knight that they feel the genre has room to grow past its time waster roots into something more compelling and engrossing. Fantastic visuals are the first to sell this idea, with noticeably higher production values than you see in most games of the genre, with tons of color and visual effects making for an impressive display that really makes you feel they're onto something. Looking past the pretty graphical prowess however, the game begins to show it's not as far off from its shallow contemporaries as it would like you to think.

Though split into three modes, classic endless running, a campaign, and a still in production choose-your-own-adventure experiment, the gameplay of Last Knight is relatively the same throughout all of them. Mounting your horse and grabbing a lance, you ride through levels dodging left and right between obstacles, jumping gaps, grabbing coins, and occasionally hitting an oncoming rider off his horse. It's a traditional but perfectly solid design, whose flaws lie in how actually playing it feels.

Endless runners rely on quick reflexes, which in turns require you be able to see the obstacles in front of you in time to react to them. Last Knight fails both of these by positioning the camera in possibly the worst view it could be, creating a painfully low draw distance that barely allows you to see ahead of you at all, but certainly not enough to dodge obstacles consistently with how slowly your rider moves from side to side. It makes death feel cheap and random, like you simply got unlucky by being on that side of the screen when they through something at you you had no chance to avoid. I also found myself feeling rather seasick from the view angle, which for those often prone to motion sickness in games may make the game unplayable.

Last Knight fails again in regards to making itself a game that players want to return to. Level designs are decent when you are going through the story and only seeing each area once, but in endless mode it quickly becomes obvious how little variation there is between sections, and as a result I became bored of the mode after only a handful of runs (which for an endless runner is essentially a death sentence).

I can't recommend Last Knight for a variety of reasons, but perhaps the biggest one is that for how hard it tries, it winds up even less than the free (some would say throwaway) runners that populate mobile and flash gaming. It's impressive visuals can only do so much to hide the dull and forgettable gameplay underneath, that all the while did nothing but make me wonder why I wasn't playing any number of other games instead. I'd like to say Last Knight still has potential, that while it's still in early access it has time to be reworked and improved into something more enjoyable, but at this point and with how tightly ingrained its issues are I'm really not sure it does.

Really addictive game! Relies on the endless running genre where mobile games like Temple Run and Subway Surfers succeded in gaining millions of downloads. But this game adds a lot more than just running around and avoiding obstacles. It introduces Jousting which brings some action to the genre where the other games missed. The visuals are charming and even the evil characters/hellish environments have a peculiar charm in them. The soundtrack compliments this charm and the game overall will keep you smiling as you play it (Though it does have those frustrating moments which you experienced in other endless runners). The game does have decent variety as it offers a decent number of customizations and modifiers to play around with. Considering the low price point, this game should certainly come under your instant buy list.
