The latest build of Grapple Knight can be found here:

Play as Jouren as you take up the mantle of a fallen knight to journey through a myriad of environments and battle hordes of twisted creatures; on a quest to stop the evil Alchemist and free his grip from your homeland!

Grapple Knight is a momentum based, action platformer that pays homage to the games of the late 80's and early 90's that Red Knight Games grew up with.

  • Xbox and PS3 controller support*
  • With the help of your companion Stroud, use your spirit grapple to jump, grab and swing through environments, comboing all the way.
  • Using your magical axe, defeat the monsters which stand in your way, sometimes even using them to reach heights you never thought possible.
  • Avoid the pitfalls and dangers the Alchemist has placed in your way using all the powerful and acrobatic prowess at your disposal.
  • Uncover the tombs of fallen warriors that grant special attributes and perks allowing you to customise your experience and play your way.
  • Gain new abilities and attacks as you defeat bosses and the Alchemist's most powerful creations, transforming Jouren from a common man into a knight of legend.
  • Enjoy 16 bit style graphics and music to take you back to that nostalgic era of challenges and gameplay that captured the hearts and imaginations of many.
  • Will be available on Windows/Mac and Linux.
*-PS3 controller support currently only available using MotionJoy to emulate Xbox controller.

This game is dead?

k, this is a bit disconcerting. It appears that Red knight games stopped communicating some time around June in 2014?
Their twitter, webpage and kickstarter campaign doesnt have any more posts from them after that date and people are starting to get concerned... :( I really wish they would finish this game.

So uhm... Is this game still happening? I mean as far as I can see there haven't been a single update in over a year here, so... Yeah.
