    KnifeBoy: a 2D MetroidVania game heavily inspired by Guacamelee, Axiom Verge and Dark Souls, spiced with some Light-RPG goodness and humor, set in an "Early Age Steampunk-Universe" with an unique graphical design.

    The Hub - a place to hang out with the locals, view your collectibles, trophies/achievements, grab a sidequest... Or just take a break from the outside world and enjoy tonights performance.

    Here are some pictures of the "Day&Night" mechanic and hopefully it gives you an idea what we are trying to achieve here. During Night, enemies are stronger and you can access places you wouldn't normally do. The Hub is a place you want to make sure to return to. Here you can read comic books (collectibles), view your progress, accept MonsterHunter-ish-SideQuests and check your IN-GAME (?!?!) trophies/achievements.

    GIF has bad quality BTW!

    We're trying to give TwinPeaks (hometown) a lively atmosphere and a place to kick back and relax.
    Feel free to ask questions about the game!

    I just bought a Green Steam light package and I'm working on a trailer, more GIFs and more info about the game and hopefully have it Green-lit on Steam! I understand its not much info here... But based on that GIF and the design... Do you guys think I'm in the right direction?
