Team Cherry's entry for the Ludum Dare Game Jam 27!
Team Cherry: Rohan Fraser Ari Gibson William Pellen
The theme of this jam was 10 Seconds. So we present to you Hungry Knight, a determined little adventurer with a big appetite. Fight your way through a strange wasteland, keep yourself fed every ten seconds, and accomplish a miracle. Others may perish at your hand, but such is the remorselessness of this world.
A challenging action game. It's hard, but you can do it! Be brave.
