Brazilian indie studio Cyber Rhino Studios has released a gameplay trailer for their upcoming shoot 'em up Gryphon Knight Epic. As Sir Oliver and Áquila, players must face off against hordes of deadly, enchanted enemies. The onslaught of magical foes is backed by other talented knights and their own special steeds, complete with potent abilities. Much like a Mega Man adventure, defeating these riders will give the player access to their weapons. In addition to new weapon types, players will be able to find potions and squires to help them on their way to defeat the fantastical threat facing their kingdom.
Honestly, Gryphon Knight Epic looks like the kind of game that would have done really well as a Super Nintendo or Sega Genesis title. It definitely looks like the kind of game I would have rented from a video rental store (remember those?) and never been able to beat. Maybe this is the next Shovel Knight?
Gryphon Knight Epic will be releasing on August 20 for PC, Mac, and Linux.
