Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have been working on NightKnight since 2017 and we’ve now reached the point where we want to get more involved with the global community and grow together.
We showcased NightKnight at different gaming conferences and got so much positive feedback for our current version that we decided to release the game earlier.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We would like to move from Early Access before the end of the year 2019.
This may be subject to changes depending on the features we will implement after getting feedback from the community.”

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

“In the full version, we would like to add -
  • A solid single-player mode with various strategic elements for the player to control.
  • Additional bows to choose from.
  • A co-op and 1vs1 modes.
  • A Multi-Platform mode for a local multiplayer of a VR player vs a Non-VR player (already working on this one).
  • Additional traps, upgrades and hopefully pets to accompany the player.
  • A global ranking leaderboard.
And much more.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“In the current version of the game -
  • Players can try to complete 4 weeks of game-time which translates to 28 waves of enemies.
  • Each week includes 7 different waves and a mini-boss at its end.
  • For each week completion, players are rewarded with a new bow for their weapons arsenal with its own unique style and power ability.
  • Players can also apply different elements to their arrows to inflict greater damage or effect to creeps.
  • Players can interact with different traps that are set alongside the creeps path that can inflict damage or interfere with their way to attack the gate.
  • Players can teleport themselves to different locations around the castle.
All packed into one extremly fun gameplay.”

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

“The game's price may vary to reflect the value added to the game and to appreciate the involvement of players who purchased the game while it's in the early stages of development. The price may vary during and/or after its Early Access.”

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

“All community feedback is dear to us and it will play an integral part in the development process. There is a lot of things to add or improve that sometimes can be seen only from the player point of view. Hence the community is welcome to contribute by engaging in a discussion with us, for example by commenting on the difficulty of the waves, reporting issues or even help with creating new content. Also feel free to send us any suggestions you would like to see in the future version of the game.
We will always be at your disposal via our social media such as our Discord channel, Facebook page etc.”

Update v1.0.3

Hey everyone!

Version v1.0.3 of NightKnight is now live!

In this update, we focused on three main goals -
1. Improving the overall performance of the game on both HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. Expect a much smoother experience while playing from now on.
2. We've now added the use of in-game coins! With them, you can purchase traps immediately instead of waiting until they respawn at the end of each week. This will also be used as our ground base for future updates that will involve a lot more options for purchasing. We'll elaborate more on that in the future :)
For now, you can also see the top richest players in our newly added "Gold Diggers" global leaderboard!
3. As always, fixing various bugs.

About This Game

Story

But unfortunately, the day has come where you have to words into action. A wicked witch has cursed the entire kingdom and turned everyone to undead. This undead army now seeks vengeance and terrorizes everyone in its path. The only way to stop them is to kill the witch, leaving a trail of destruction and death wherever they go as they will not rest until the witch is found and killed!


Your mission is to defend the castle gates from the undead army who attack at night, protect Princess Day and defeat the wicked witch. You will be rewarded kindly for your efforts each week you survived.

  • Bow mechanics based on real-life physics.
  • Diverse and unique types of enemies with different behaviors.
  • Use different types of bows, each one with its own unique style and power-ability to push the undead from taking over.
