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.

This may not be a good game, but lets not forget that these guys made something *functional* in just a day

So this is where it all began...

only complaint is the swipe on the bigger guys feels a bit too wide- and the lag, even for a good pc im having trouble since this is running at maybe 20 frames

also the midwife is best omnomnom monster girl

Team Cherry hangs out on newgrounds? BASED

Although this is the first game team cherry made, and after it came the absolute masterpiece that is Hollow Knight. I still feel like I should review this in the most unbiased way.

Starting with the art design:
Meh. It's not too bad. Looks decent.

I like it. The "Reviving a friend" thing is a story plot I don't see often but I know that I'm in for a treat if I see it. I really wish there was more effort put into establishing the plot. Like maybe showing what happened or an explanation to why the Knight is so hungry. (tiny nitpick but why doesn't the Knight have a mouth if this is a game about eating things?)

Gameplay: This is where it goes downhill.

The game gets massive frame drops at random, the enemy variety is bad, the combat is just press "Z" and pray that the enemy didn't attack you during the frame drops. The area is pretty bland and the setting is never established.

I really wish people didn't spam good ratings just because the like Hollow Knight, I mean, I love the game but I wish you didn't support their other game solely for the fact that this is also from the Hollow Knight creators.

Also, why isn't there a pause button??
