The tale of KNIGHTSHIFT is one of epic deeds. In the great palace courtrooms, the minstrels sing of the return of Great Prince John from his gallant battles to vanquish the forces of evil. The tale tells of imprisoned princesses, the slaying of ferocious dragons and of the Prince being generally heroic and just - as every good Prince should. The minstrels also sing about MILK. Yes the COW producing, bottled kind.
KNIGHTSHIFT delivers churn loads of addictive game play, across a land of treachery and nobility - while never taking itself too seriously. Rewriting the fantasy gaming rulebook - KNIGHTSHIFT introduces players to a milk-based economy, flying witches and terrifying mother in laws! Set in a living, fully three-dimensional game environment, KNIGHTSHIFT bewitches the players PC with breathtaking graphics and effects. The unique combination of genre elements, matched with 'Python-esque' humour creates a uniquely entertaining experience.
The strategy section of the game consists of three addictive, story driven campaigns - each presenting new challenges to the player, across a variety of beautiful landscapes. Players are able to develop their characters and gain access to new weapons, special armour and magical items.

An extensive role-play element plays as a hack-and-slash single-player adventure, with the player accompanied by an entourage of soldiers. Players generate their character from one of eight different classes, including knights, barbarians and wizards. Various statistics, including strength and stamina are adjustable to personalise the player's character. Collecting gold from fallen enemies allows the player to purchase weapons, armour, and other items from merchants.
