Explore a mysterious British island in the 1980’s

Knights and Bikes is an upcoming Co-op action adventure game developed by Foam Sword, and is set in a hand painted 3D world. The game takes place in 1980’s ‘Penfurzy’ – a fictional British island and place of medieval legend. You play as Nessa and Demelza – two young girls, one an outsider from the mainland, and the other an imaginative local. You explore the island using your customizable bikes in the search of treasure.

During their investigation, the girls unleash evil ancient spirits on the island. They must fight back by bike-jousting, Frisbee-throwing, and puddle-stomping the enemies in order to save the islanders, learning new skills from those they rescue.
