What is Grapple Knight?

How quick are your reflexes? Grapple Knight is a fast paced 2D platformer that is currently in development for Windows, Mac, and Linux. Alongside a retro inspired art style and soundtrack, Grapple Knight seeks to challenge players to use quick combinations of slides, grapples, and attacks as you guide the hero through a myriad of environments and enemies.

"...it's basically like a new MegaMan game without any of the Capcom trolling antics" - CinemaBlend

The Story so Far

An evil Alchemist has claimed the Kingdom, and it's up to our hero, Jouren, to break his tyranny. The Alchemist's control runs deep, with now dangerous environments and full of twisted creatures that will stand in Jouren's way. He won't be alone on his adventure, as he takes up the mantle of Stroud, a once proud knight that fell at the hands of the Alchemist. As Stroud bestows onto Jouren newly granted magic abilities, he makes his journey for the Alchemist. The player will guide Jouren, sliding and grappling through the environments at fast speeds, and cutting down his foes along the way; increasing Jouren's abilities and strength, ready to take on the Alchemist.
