Welcome to Rampage Knights! This guide is intended to give new players a general overview of Rampage Knights, and it's mechanics, controls and interfaces.

What is Rampage Knights?

Rampage Knights is a cooperative beat 'em up game mixed up with randomized dungeon crawling and exploration, which you can play alone or with a friend online. You play as a hero trapped by a spell in a magical forest. All paths lead to a nearby ruined castle, where the source of the black magic covering the land is dwelling. Gear up with awesome and ridiculous weapons and spells as you descent into the deep labirynth to face its sinister master and break the curse.

A limited Tech Demo is currently available, with the game expected to enter beta in late 2014 or early 2015.

Gameplay

The Camp

Inside The Camp.
Upon starting either a single player or co-op game of Rampage Knights, players will find themselves in The Camp. This is the hub of the game, where players start and where they respawn when they die. Here, players can change their appearance and attire by speaking with Igor. Several other NPCs are present, although they cannot be interacted with.

The Graveyard

To the left of The Camp is a graveyard. When the player enters the graveyard, a single Skeleton will spawn but will not attack the player. This makes it perfect for practicing combat before entering the game proper.
