WATCH THE VIDEO: PS4 gets first platformer title in Knack

Publish date:

Having worked on Crash Bandicoot, Jak and Daxter and Ratchet and Clank, PS4 lead architect Mark Cerny has found a new platform star in Knack.

The title centres around a scientist who, after studying ancient relics for years, finds a way to bind them together and bring them to life in the form of Knack.

Knack can embrace relics into his body to grow into a huge machine and he can also absorb ice, metal, and other substances into his being.

The bad guys come in the form of a goblin army threatening to destroy mankind and Cerny describes the gameplay in Knack ‘a little bit like Crash Bandicoot and a little bit like Katamari Damacy.'
