Update #21 - Sinister, Salmon and the Spiked Shield



Hello friends!

We have a pretty big update for you this week. The long awaited Sinister and Salmon are joining the Knight Squad and the Spiked Shield has been stolen by the trolls and put in the hands of the knights.

Changes
  • Added two new unlockable knights: Sinister and Salmon
  • Added one new weapon: The Spiked Shield
  • Changed the controller manager to fix all remapping issues
  • Passwords for online games are now set in the lobby
  • Minor bug fixing
Sinister is unlocked by completing the Extermination (7 kills) achievement. Salmon the fishy knight is locked behind a very well known code for all the old school gamers out there. Does the Konami code ring a bell?

Let us know if you have any issues with this update and thank you for playing Knight Squad!

Well, the game is fun in concept. But the fact that no controllers work via Steam Link or GameStream, kinda makes playing with a large group useless. I can't imagine in this day and age making games that can't support playing locally via steam streaming. We're not all crowding around my computer desk sharing the only chair in my office, when I have a perfectly good TV with a sofa in the other room.

Fix this.

Can easily sit in the game room and play with someone for an hour through capture the flag and all the other game modes. Just need a better online structure so it is easier to play with eight someones.

Bought this game yesterday because I was having some friends over. We planned on playing a bunch of games but ended up playing just this for most of the day. It's very fun! We played a variety of game modes in the afternoon and mostly just played Last Man Standing in the evening, as we perceived that one to be the most fun. We only didn't like the football one.

Some criticism though:
We were playing with 4 people and filled the remaining 4 slots with bots. Bot difficulty was a bit iffy. On higher difficulties bots have excellent timing with their sword swings, making them practically impossible to beat in toe-to-toe melee combat. However, even on Extreme difficulty the AI is still dumb as bricks, so if given enough freedom you can easily outsmart them. This makes the optimal difficulty vary a lot between game modes. For example, modes like Arms Race which just focus on killing as fast as possible were best played on regular difficulty, while on Last Man Standing even on Extreme difficulty the bots struggled to keep up with the players.

I played this game while at PAX South and love it. Bought it while i was there for half price. Currently does not support online play but it does support local co-op play and is a blast and makes a great party game. Even at its current state i recommend the game. They are still updating so be on the look out for the online play soon.

Oh man, this game. I first tried this at PAX Prime 2015, and ended up revisiting the booth the whole weekend to keep playing.

The ideal way to play this really is with 7 friends locally, although the computers aren't awful to play against. It's already incredibly polished for local play, and the developers have said they're working on making the online functional, although I personally haven't tried it yet.

There's a ridiculous amount of content for the price, and once you play it with friends once you won't regret it. It creates a lot of the same moments I remember playing 4-player bomberman on the snes. Tense, interesting, and fast-paced multiplayer couch combat. I probably should have started with that, but oh well.

Seriously, get this game.

Knight Squad was probably designed with the idea, "What if Gauntlet had online multiplayer?" While the game modes consist of your standard fare deathmatch, capture the flag, king of the hill, etc the real heart of the game is in its gameplay and mechanics. Players begin with a short sword but, through Bomberman styled pickups, upgrade to long swords, bow and arrows, kamakazi bombs, and crossbows. One hit kills but respawns are quick creating a fast paced feel to the game that suits it well. The only fault with the current build is that all matches will be played with AI bots. Online multiplayer and a campaign are on the way though so this issue will eventually be rectified.

On the other hand the best part about this game, thus far, is the inclusion of local mulitplayer. With the industry standard of making games without local multiplayer, this is a breath of fresh air. Playing this with a few friends reminded me of all of the great times I had playing 2v2 Smash Bros. Might I say that this is no small feat to accomplish. I still hold Smash Bros to be the best party game for local multiplayer. In fact, both games feature "fun chaos" when first learning the systems and both have a great deal of depth/strategy despite both having appeal to non core games.

I am eager to see what Chainsawsome Games does with the future of this title. Whatever they do with it, though, it is off to a great start.

Seriously this game is amazing! I'm really impressed with the content they keep churning out through the Early Access process.

I was satisfied with the game before they added Juggernaut play style and Ripper power up but holy smokes those two things make the game awesome!

Four player action is my favorite. I can't wait to give it a shot with eight of my buddies!

Knight Squad is a very fun game, there are lots of modality, all different!
For example: there is classic deatchmatch or capture the flag , the Last Man Challenge, Capture the Grail, football and many more!
You can play either in single, against BOT, and online with friends!
In short it is a game really successful, that could take away the social life!

NOTE: Knight Squad is in Early Access and that means this will be a much more condensed review than a final release review. As soon as the game launches I will have a final release review which would be a much more descriptive review. Thanks!

Knight Squad is a 1 to 8 player indie game created and published by Chainsawesome Games. It is available on Steam's Early Access program for the low price of $9.99. The game puts you in the point of view of bird's eye view and allows you to control one out of eight knights. You will control your knight to defeat all other opponents that stand in your way. As the player, you may choose one of the six game modes, each mode having two maps (with the exclusion of Soccer's one map). On top of picking a game mode and a unique map, made exclusively to a certain game mode, you can choose whether you would like bots to play with you, if you are alone. You may set the bots to have a certain difficulty out of the four choices (Easy, Medium, Hard, and Extreme). With whatever mode you choose, whether it's easy or even extreme, you will be challenged as the AI is very well programmed to fight you. How does it hold up?

Knight Squad surprised me. I haven't had this fun playing with my brother and six other bots in years. The AI challenged us to even use teamwork when we were on the same side. With all the powerups and weapons that are thrown at you from enemies, you're gonna need to move quickly to avoid arrows, lasers, and even KAMIKAZES! The list goes on for a while, including ninjas - which fight by your side as you fight enemies - and even being able to drill your way through the map's blocks. You will have a lot of fun with this game, especially as more maps and gamemodes are being added. And, like every review has said so far, I can't wait to kick some butt on online multiplayer!

8.5/10 - Knight Squad is already rivaling some of the best multiplayer games that have come up within the past 5 years, and it's only going to keep getting better! Well done Chainsawesome Games!

A genuinely fun local multiplayer game. While it isn't exactly complex, its easy to pick up and a lot of fun. At the end of the day, sometimes you need a game that everyone on the couch can just grab a controller and enjoy. Knight Squad accomplishes that.
