What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Willy-Nilly Knight created by the very small team of developer, who like this genre and gameplay. That's why we have very limited resources and can't turn all our ideas into the game right now. Early Access give us ability to get your feedback about existing mechanics and improve it.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“No solid release date has been set at the moment. We are trying to do our game as good as possible, that's why we will work on Willy-Nilly Knight as long as we can proud it! Hopefully, the game will graduate from Early Access in mid-Late 2017, but it’s impossible to say for certain.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“First of all the final version will include full support for gamepads (like Steamlink or Xbox) and local cooperative multiplayer.

We also intend to create a deeper combat system and gameplay process, by adding more skills, environments, side quests and so on... Technically we will include into the final version improved textures, improved AI, more hidden items, improved animations, improved object interactions, improved lighting and much more.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently the game is fully playable and generally bug free. At its current state Willy-Nilly Knight contains about twenty hours of gameplay time, based on the great strong story.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The game will likely retain the same price point when it leaves Early Access, but final decision depends on many factors like amount of sold copies in Early Access. Anyway, we will bring our decision a little time before final release, for every user can take the decision to buy game right now or wait until final release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We are really happy to take feedback from our community, because of you gave the great ability to make our game better. The tiny indie team like We are very dependent on your ideas and reports, because only players know what they really want. Share your good and bad experience with us while playing Willy-Nilly Knight and together we will make old-school-like RPG great again!”

Patch Notes v1.0.7

In this patch we changed a lot of key mechanics of the game.

Changes in battle system:
Now all your damage have one of the following modificators: piercing, crushing, slashing, ice, fire, electricity, poison, holy and dark. This changes gave us an ability to increase role of the immunes. Furthermore, now damage type can be more efficient on some mobs then the other one.

Weapon requirements:
From now some skills require exact type of weapon equipped. And of course they change power based on weapon power.

Weapons visualization:
Equipped weapons now changes not only inventory icon, but 3D model in the character's hands too. This applies to all weapons, except bows, they will be ready in next updates.

New equipment type - shields:
Now Arthur can carry shield in the left hand. Shield gave him additional defense. In next updates we will change their mechanic and make it deeper and interesting.

Changes in tooltips:
Information about skills and items now shows in more beauty and readable way. In additions now you can see final attack damage and modifier from skills and items (counted on single base, without enemy defenses and immunes).

This is the first, but very large and important part of changes in game mechanics and visualization. As ever We will proactively track and correct any bugs that appear. Thank you in advance for your understanding. Stay with us and share your opinion, together we «Make the tactical RPG great again!».

About This Game

Do you ever dream of being a real hero from a fairy-tale about dragons, sorcerers and knights? If the answer is yes, then you're in luck. Because you are in a fairy-tale right now! Moreover, you are the Knight by yourself! You are fearless, you have sharp sword and your destiny awaits you. But… There is always a catch.

First of all, you don't know what's going on. Secondly, local Gods have a plan for you. They want you to be their living weapon. To be someone who shall carry their will upon this world. Yes, it's unfair. It's absolutely, completely unfair.

So this is where your journey begins. In Willy-Nilly Knight you have to be a knight in the middle of strange and unpredictable events. If you want to find out the truth, then you should do your best in fighting and tactics. At least it's a tactical RPG.

What should you expect from Willy-Nilly Knight? It's a great story. It takes place in a wonderful world. You will meet many attractive NPCs and build friendships with them. You will master a unique tactical battle system and crafting. And it's just the tip of the iceberg. Really.

  • Exciting adventure of the true hero:
    You will be a vital part of the great adventure and witness many different things. Do you want an example? What about confrontation with Gods? Or do you want to be a part of English folklore? Anyway, this journey will last more than 20 hours of gameplay so there will be plenty of events for sure.

  • It's real-time and turn-based all in one:
    You could discover points of interest in this world in real time. But then it's time to fight game switches in turn-based mode. So you could keep your pace and plan your action carefully. Your action points is your only restriction there.

  • Surprises and references:
    There are so many surprises and references... Could you catch 'em all?

  • Friends Will Be Friends:
    In this journey you will meet many different characters. Some of them will be your enemies, but you could find friends too. Even a true love! All your companions will have unique skill-set so it's your right to choose with whom you want to be on one side.

  • Real handyman:
    There are so many useful things in Willy-Nilly Knight… Armours, helms, boots, gloves, weapons, scrolls, potions. You could buy it. You could loot it. You could craft it! Take your chance to let your imagination run wild!
