“Escape the Knight” is a traditional Side-scroller video game. It follows the story of Sylvia Livingston, a kidnapped princess. Unlike the typical damsel in distress, this princess will make her own escape. First, she must defeat the 7 knights of toxic masculinity; Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy and Pride.
It aims to bring awareness around the toxic behaviour of hypermasculine gamers, and the effects of it on female gamers. The game aims the typical “toxic” behaviours of males that affect woman back at the user. The Player’s goal is to make their escape, defeat her captors and claim back her “crown jewels” (pun intended) and hopefully learn a lesson along the way.
