I'd like to announce a new project for the Knick series.
Since KNICK! actually kicked off to a more complex title, I decided to make a new debut game. This one will stick to much more simple roots, but still providing the basic gameplay that future Knick titles will build upon.
This will be Knick's FIRST adventure - The dark Lord Frank shows up on Knick's doorstep and kidnaps Dunny. Knick goes off to save her and defeat Lord Frank and his minions. Along the way, he runs into the Princesses who have small troubles of their own.
Knick will trek through 4 large levels, each ending with a boss and a few mini quests in them. All mini quests are optional, but the bosses are mandatory. But each mini quest will grant Knick assistance in the perils to come.
Knick will stick with his most basic of skills - fists and feet combat. Short-ranged attacks, but he'll learn new moves through mini quests.
There'll also be achievements, small secrets, and reasons to play through more than once.
I hope to start AND FINISH this game before 2013, but no promises. I plan to make this game within one or two months. I'll actually be making this game during my spare time while working on a larger game with a friend.
This will be a solo project. I'll be throwing my own money to get a musician, but the art, animation, and coding will all be done myself. There wont be any voice acting.
I'll post it on DeviantART, Armor Games, Newgrounds, and Kongregate.
It won't be under any fancy "company" name - it'll just be "A Game By Nick Roger".
