Grasshopper Manufacture does some quirky, yet interesting work, often courtesy of auteur director Suda51. Their latest game is a collaboration with Digital Reality, who also worked with them on previous downloadable game Sine Moria. Black Knight Sword uses a dark, yet charming puppet theater aesthetic to tell the story of a knight and his sword, questing through a sidescroller. The game also features music by former Silent Hill composer Akira Yamaoka. And as of Tuesday, it is out on PlayStation Network!
Unlike Sine Moria, there’s no exclusivity window for this game, so those who only have access to Xbox Live Arcade will be happy to know that they can download Black Knight Sword on Wednesday. It looks really great, and considering the studio behind it, I’d highly recommend checking it out!
