We're pretty big fans of Knights and Bikes here at Push Square Towers. It's effortlessly adorable, tells a heartwarming tale, and provides a rollicking adventure for kids big and small. In fact, the island setting of Penfurzy has allowed for not just a video game. Before the game was even released, two books were spawned, continuing Nessa and Demelza's shenanigans in another medium. It doesn't end there, either, as Knights and Bikes could well be appearing on your TV screens too.
It's been optioned for an animated series by Tiger Aspect Productions. Essentially this means that the company has bought the rights to produce a television adaptation of the IP, meaning a series could still be a while off yet. Still, a Knights and Bikes TV show is a brilliant idea; it has a great art style and a whimsical cast of characters that seem perfect for a series.
Rex Crowle of developer Foam Sword Games seems understandably excited about the venture: "The energy, humour and joy that continually bursts out of TV animation was a large inspiration in creating Knights And Bikes, not just in the way it looks, but also in the themes and tone of the game. It’s a fantastically fun new development for us to be working with Tiger Aspect on a Knights And Bikes animated series, and taking things full-circle."
