Un jeu d'aventure de type médiéval mettant en scène des affrontements entre machines à laver, par le studio Detocroix Company.

Legend of the Knightwasher est un jeu d'aventure de type médiéval mettant en scène des affrontements entre machines à laver médiévales.

A la fin de la guerre barbare l'un des chevaliers du roi trahi ses frères. Il marchait à travers la ville, à travers les portes du château royal, tuant chaque chevalier dans son sillage. Lorsqu'il arriva à la salle du trône il y trouva le Knightwasher (NdT:chevalier machine à laver), le conseiller général, le Crownwasher (NdT:machine à laver de la couronne), le roi, et aussi le noble seigneur Torl le Redshredder (NdT: la déchiqueteuse rouge). La bataille fut courte; Darkwasher, le méchant chevalier, avait employé les services d'une nettoyeuse inconnue. Les machines bestiales à son service étaient quasi immortelles et le combat tourna court.

Knightwasher fût tué, de même que le vrai Crownwasher du roi et les nobles Redshredder. Knightwasher s'éveilla à la voix froide et chatoyantes de la mort. Toutes les couleurs tournèrent au rouge. Ce fût sa dernière escale avant le repos dans l'au-delà. Knightwasher entendit la Mort demander à son roi s'il avait des dernières volontés. La voix du roi se fit plus forte, presque pieusement, quand il prononça ces mots : «Je souhaite que le nom de Knightwasher n'ait jamais existé dans votre livre".
La mort se fit silencieuse quelques temps jusqu'à ce que finalement elle dit en ces termes : «accordé».

Puis vint le tour de Knightwasher, mais la mort fût incapable de porter un jugement et de retirer ses liens avec ce monde. La liste de la mort ne contenait plus le nom de Knightwasher, et son ouvrage ne pouvait donc s'accomplir. Le souhait du roi avait laissé Knightwasher dans les limbes, et la mort mis 26 ans à trouver une solution à son sort. Knightwasher sera exilé et de retour dans le monde et il devra se racheter .. ou trouver un moyen de faire revenir son nom sur la liste des vivants et des morts.

Description [en]

At the end of the barbarian wars one of the King's knights betrayed his brothers. He marched through the city, through the gates to the royal castle, murdering every knight in his wake. As he arrived to the throne room there stood the Knightwasher, general and advisor of Crownwasher, the King, and also the noble lord Torl the Redshredder. The battle was short; Darkwasher, the evil knight, had employed the services of unknown washers. The beastly machines in his service were near immortal and their strikes shook the ground.

Knightwasher was killed, along with the true King Crownwasher and the noble Redshredder. Knightwasher woke to the cold and shimmering voice of Death. All color has bled out. It was his last stop before whatever lied in the afterlife. Knightwasher heard Death ask his King if he had any last wishes. The King's voice was booming, almost godly, as he said: “I wish Knightwasher's name never existed in that book of yours”. For a moment Death was silent until finally he spoke one word: “Granted.”

Then came the Knightwasher's turn, but Death was unable to pass judgement and remove his ties to this world. Death's list no longer contained Knightwasher's name, so his duty could not be filled. King's wish had left Knightwasher in a limbo, and only after 26 years had Death devised a solution for his fate. Knightwasher was exiled back on the world and he would have to redeem himself.. or find a way to get his name back on the list of living and dead.


☑ Medieval adventure game featuring a "race" of washing machines
☑ Physics based combat with lances, one handed weapons and ballistaes
☑ With a friend (at least local friend) or alone
☑ World shaped like a hexagon with six continents circling a great sea with vortex in middle leading to a void below the world and the whole thing is floating within stars (p.s. you can fall off and die permanently)
☑ Joyful pirate ship and sea shanties
☑ Redeem yourself or not
☑ Narrated by.. Oh! That's really nice!
☑ Meet Death, some Titans, few peasants, couple of undeads and talk with them. Maybe kill a few of them, probably not all, but most should be possible. Maybe you shouldn't kill them though, but if that's what you desire, sure why not whatever your free will and empathy or something like that
☑ Wake up in a grave, unless of course you are no longer "immortal", then you won't wake in it
☑ Loot some barrels and chests. Maybe even someones wardrobe. Look around your little backpack inventory, throw some stuff out to fit in the brand new boots you can't even use. You're a washing machine, right?
☑ Read semi-bad poetry, but poetry none the less
☑ P.s. even though there are washing machines, you won't see a single "Who washes the watchers if not washers themselves?"-jokes in it. I have very serious humor.
☑ Drink some deadly potions, meet with Dea-... I mentioned him already? Oh eh uhm... Well create some deadly potions!
