At the Toronto Game Jam (TOJam) over the weekend, indie developers from all over the place got together and made some games. They’re still in the process of being pulled together and put online, but one that’s caught my eye is Knight & Damsel. I came for the pixel art, but stayed for the premise.
It’s is a “competitive two-player feminist puzzle platformer”, in which the knight is trying to rescue a damsel who, uh, doesn’t need/want to be rescued. So the chase is on.
The game (or, to be fair, basic playable concept) was done over the course of the jam, and was the work of five guys, including Sound Shapes’ Matthew Kumar and Vic Nguyen.
If you like the sound/look of it, Kumar tweeted that the “version we made for the jam proved the concept, am hopeful that we can find more than just time to make it something special…”
