Cyber Rhino Studios, the developers behind the upcoming 2D action game, Gryphon Knight, have released a new gameplay trailer for the game after a long hiatus. The developers even apologized for staying quiet so long as they’ve been working to finish up the game as fast as they can.
The new gameplay trailer shows off multiple environments from the game as well as a few new bosses that weren’t revealed in the Kickstarter campaign’s description. Be sure to check out the new gameplay trailer at the bottom of this article. The developers are nearing a release date announcement for the game as they finish up the final touches on the game, according to their latest Kickstarter update.
If you’re only just now hearing about Gryphon Knight, the game is a 2D mash up of a bunch of different gameplay styles including shoot em ups, exploration and intense end of the level boss fights. The game will tell the story of Sir Oliver and Áquila (the Gryphon) as they traverse through 6 different and varied levels that all include 2 bosses for players to defeat. The games’ many bosses range from giant knights, to angry gorillas and plenty more fantastical creatures.
In addition to the game’s main story mode, there will also be a Retro mode and Boss Battle only mode. Details have not yet been released for either after-mentioned game mode. Boss Battle mode is probably self explanatory, but the developers haven’t revealed yet how the game’s Retro mode will be different than the main game.
Since the project only acquired $19,000 in funding on Kickstarter, none of the stretch goals were hit which kept the game from having additional levels on top of the original 6. The stretch goals also included an additional female protagonist, co-op and even enhanced visuals for the game which included some nice looking weather effects. You can learn more about Gryphon Knight by checking out the Kickstarter page which includes information on the game’s many bosses, weapons, locations and more.
Gryphon Knight will release on the PC, Mac and Linux with gamepad support. The developers are planning to announce a release date in the near future.
