Knack was the first Playstation 4 game revealed but that doesn’t mean it’s not impressive. If you’re a fan of Pixar movies like Toy Story, then you’ll probably be interested in this. Knack is a creative action game that puts you in the shoes of none other than Knack, a creature made of powerful, ancient relics. The gameplay consists of battling foes in large open environments by using your ability to expand and stretch your physical size.
Watch the Knack trailer below, which includes some gameplay video…
Knack is being developed in house at SCE Japan Studio. The design is being lead by industry luminary, Mark Cerny, the creator of the arcade classic, Marble Madness, and many other games. Interestingly, he’s also the system architect for the Playstation 4 driving the developer and gamer driven vision of the console.
We think this game looks great and serves as a nice demonstration of what a first generation PS4 game can do. Graphically, Knack is beautiful, showcasing incredibly natural lighting and shadows along with the numerous objects on screen. Knack could be the Crash Bandicoot of the Playstation 4 era.
