Hey everyone! Welcome back to another TGON Plays! This week, I’m bringing you something VERY special to me. In fact, I completely forgot about this gem until I saw it for sale at a local gaming shop. Medievil was released in 1998 and follows the story of a knight named Ser Daniel Fortesque. Ser Daniel lived during ancient times, in a land called Gallowmere. Before he was knighted, he would tell stories to the King of his adventures across the land, slaying dragons and defeating evil. The king knew his stories were far fetched, but because he enjoyed the tall tales so much, he gave Daniel his knighthood.
However, when an evil sorcerer named Zarok threatened to take over the lands, the King feared that people would learn the truth about Ser Daniel, and that his stories of victory were a farce. So he placed Ser Daniel on the front lines of the war against the evil sorcerer. Unfortunately, Ser Daniel died from the first arrow fired, and did not live to see the king’s forces prevail against Tarok.
The King told a legend of Ser Daniel, and how he was the one who struck Zarok down, though he knew this to be untrue. A great monument was erected in Daniel’s honor. However, thousands of years passed, and long after the king and legends of the Knight of Gallowmere had been forgotten, and Zarok rose to power once more. The powers that be decide that their hero is to be a resurrected Ser Daniel Fortesque. They wake his bones, and give him a second chance at redeeming the honor he’d lost many years ago.
In this game, you get to play as Ser Daniel, a skeleton Knight with an important mission. You can use swords, shields, throwing daggers and, when your weapons cache has been depleted, you can even use your own arm to defeat Zarok’s army of the undead. You get to travel through various points in a cemetary and take on hoards of zombies, as well as a handful of mini-bosses to get to Zarok. Keep in mind this game is nearly 20 years old, so the graphics aren’t spectacular, but it’s still a marvelously fun game to play. It’s originally for the Playstation, so if you’re not able to play it for yourselves, be sure to check out some gameplay of it on Youtube. That’s all I’ve got for you guys this week, tune in next week for another TGON Plays! Thanks for reading!
