Description

Knight Squad is an insane 1 to 8 players chaotic arena friendship destroyer. Take on current friends and future frenemies in any of the incredibly fun game modes, ranging from Last Man Standing to Medieval soccer. All of that using only weapons from the middle age… and laser guns… and miniguns.

History

Knight Squad is Chainsawesome Games’ second title and it was born from a prototype that earned the studio the grand prize in the 48-hour Game Jam of the Pixel Challenge in 2013. Thanks to a solid business plan for this project, Chainsawesome Games won the grand prize of the Catapulte contest presented by Ubisoft Quebec in 2015 and the studio has received $50,000 for the marketing of their game. Knight Squad was then released in fall of 2015 and has been downloaded on the Xbox One by 1.7 million users through an exclusive partnership with Microsoft.
