Eternity does get repetitive.
Often your brother challenges you to a duel for your birthright. That stubborn oaf!
Immortal as you, there is only one way to make him stop – fight him till he yields.
No matter the injuries or insults you must never surrender, but remain …
Headstrong!

The theme of the game jam was “standhaftig”, Danish for steadfast. Inspired by the resilience of The Black Knight in Monty Python’s The Holy Grail, we decided to make a fighting game that can only be lost if one chooses to surrender. Throughout the fight the steadfast knights will keep insulting each other with taunts appropriate to the state of the game.
