Spiral Knights Description
In Spiral Knights, players take the role of the eponymous Knights from a space-faring civilization. The setting of the game is a mixture of science fiction and fantasy, with the Knights exploring and fighting for survival in a world called Cradle run by Clockworks, encountering different enemies and challenges along the way.
Players create their Knights from a selection of armor, helm, and color selections. There are also optional accessories to use. Players may also further personalize the height and eye shape and color. After naming their Knight, players will be taken to the beginner or tutorial area called the Crash site, with the task of locating the Rescue Camp.
Once a Knight finishes the tutorial area, they will be able to access Haven, which is the main location where the players in the world can interact. Haven is broken into the Town Square, Arcade, Bazaar, Garrison, with important structures such as the Gates, Laboratory, Guild Hall, and Hall of Heroes.
Knights in Spiral Knights can group together in parties of 1 to 4 members. Some areas in Cradle will require the assistance of other players in order to explore and successfully achieve their goals and Missions. There are many resources and materials to acquire, which are used to upgrade abilities and equipment, the most common being Heat. Knights can also establish Guilds, which provide bonuses and benefits such as the Guild Storage, Guild Treasury, and the Birdsong Emporium.
