Knights and Bikes lands August release date

Spoke too soon.

The lovely-looking Knights and Bikes finally has a release date - and it's soon! Steam and PlayStation 4 versions of the game will drop on Tuesday, 27th August.

If you're not familiar, Knights and Bikes is an indie adventure game set on the British island of Penfurzy during the 1980s. It comes from the brains of developer Foam Sword, a studio set up by former Media Molecule employees.

Knights and Bikes is a hand-painted coming-of-age story starring two kids exploring the island on their bikes and finding legendary lost treasure. Think The Goonies mixed with Tearaway by way of Costume Quest.

If that tickles your fancy, here's a trailer:

After popping up at various indie shows over the past couple of years (I've seen it at least twice at London's EGX Rezzed, that show run by Eurogamer parent company Gamer Network) it's great that the game isn't far off. I've got tyred of waiting!
