In a peaceful and magical world, an evil force called ‘The Reaper’ has taken over and corrupted the souls of the innocent.
One hero sets out on an incredible journey to cleanse the souls of their allies and restore peace.
Soul Knight is a 3D action-adventure platformer where you play as an agile fighter.
Use the unique dashing ability and other techniques to pave your way through the world and fight the evil within.
Use and learn abilities to progress further in your journey. Find all the ‘Soul Shards’ spread out over the world, cleanse them, and restore peace.
You should watch out though, ‘The Reaper’ is not to be taken lightly, he is always watching, and an unfortunate crossing seems inevitable.
Best Student Game:
Soul Knight features beautiful art, a plethora of mechanics, and a fairly large world, complete with varying environments. The game itself has been worked on for sixty days, making it an impressive feat of development. Inspired by classic 3D platformers, our goal was to create a game which brings back those nostalgic memories of wonder, while breathing new life to the genre. We hope that we can take this game further and release a full title by the end of next school year, and we would like to publish the game with a publisher, hopefully the Dutch Game Awards can help us get closer to that goal.
An aspect of the game we believe to be very note-worthy is the art. We are just a group of second year students with a lot of different art styles who managed to create a good, cohesive looking game. We have a character with a unique recognizable appearance, and together with the art style we set for the game we achieved our goal of giving the player a wonderful nostalgic experience. People who play our game are reminded of the good old-fashioned platformers and they naturally love the style of our game. But if you really want to know why we deserve the award, you should take a look at the art of Soul Knight and let that speak for itself.
