[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

We are formally announcing that Shove Knight will not be joining the cast of Knight Club! Given the number of games the blue boy is in these days, and the fact that we get asked every single day when he is joining Knight Club, we figured it'd be best to make an official not announcement trailer. Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xb5y2qTd8mo&feature=youtu.be

However, there is more news! Knight Club, the 2-4 player platform fighter, is now free forever! Previously this was exclusive to the Humble Trove, but will be available to anyone starting August 30th completely free of charge! To get access to the download, all players will need to do is sign up for the Gutter Arcade mailing list over at www.gutterarcade.com Trailerhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JgoboACk6Yg KNIGHT CLUB Is a 2-4 player action platform-fighting game that brings traditional fighting game elements into an unlocked, free form movement playstyle. Equip your favorite armaments and do battle against your friends locally or online!

Compete with your friends in classic Versus Mode, rumble for glory in Royalty, tussle for territory in King of the Hill, or get loose and pass the controller in Party Mode!

Choose from nine playable Knights such as the virtuous Penelope, the loveable idiot Horace, or the dexterous amphibian Gil!

Wield one of four different weapons, each with its own unique moveset and playstyle! Traverse nine unique stages from the tops of ancient overgrown castle ruins, to the depths of a blistering volcano workshop!

About Knight Club: Knight Club is the first game from Gutter Arcade Rooted in traditional fighting game mechanics, Knight Club aims to bring a unique experience to the platform-fighting game genre. With no ring outs, players will be locked in combat with their opponents until one Knight is left standing. Designed as a competitive game, Knight Club has a ton of mechanical depth and nuance despite its simple controls. Not the kind of person who cares about frame data, and wavedashing? No problem. There are game modes for every kind of player! Round up your friends and play some 2v2 King of the Hill, or pass the controller in Party Mode. You can even play up to 4 players online in any of the four game modes. Knight Club will be releasing on other platforms shortly after the initial Humble release.
