Looking for a unique stress-busting (or inducing) video game to play on the PC?

Good Knight, a "Filipino metal one button bullet hell" game set in a Gothic steampunk Philippines, is coming out on Steam Early Access this Friday, September 17, at 4:00 pm.

The visually striking game described as "Dante's inferno meets Philippine Horror bullet-hell" was created by Filipino game developer Team Good Knight and is distributed by Goodthink Games.

Influenced by classic games like Super-Hexagon, Castlevania, and Touhou, Good Knight tells the story of a Spanish Knight battling demons in hellish environments.

The button-mashing shooting simulator fuses shooter, rhythm, arcade, and retro elements in an action-packed video game. Players must use their agility to dodge an endless stream of bullets coming their way, all while solving puzzles. 

"You only need one button because you only have one job—survive from the bullet hell! With this magical button, you are able to perform turn around, attack, speed down, sustained attack," reads the game's description on their Steam page.

Good Knight boasts of an all original rock metal soundtrack and unique visuals including abstract blood, hack slash style violence, a demonic world, and a naked demon with a doll anatomy. The game can accommodate a maximum of four players.

Good Knight has already been recognized with several gaming awards, including “Best Console/Desktop Game” at the 2019 Electronic Sports and Gaming Summit.

Good Knight will be available on PC via Steam early access here starting Sept. 17. An app version for mobile devices and consoles like the Nintendo Switch are also planned.
