Set 14 years ago, a brutal war has taken place between the rebellious Wizarding Knights and the cyborg army of an evil emperor. The final battle ended in a giant explosion that left a large crater, revealing the underground paradise built by the ancient race of giants. The world collapsed after the explosion, both sides fled the earth to underground shelters.
Switching the scene to the present time, the player assumes the role of Rayne, a former Wizarding Knights trainee who left the team before the war broke out. Sorcerer Knights are superheroes whose power depends on the citizens’ trust in them. Although content with her quiet life, inside Rayne still has a desire to become a witch knight. And the chance to prove his prowess came when the enemy Golem army was revived and plotted revenge. The mayor of the town assigns you the task of repairing the city’s infrastructure while defeating the enemies.
Players will move from room to room, discovering the correct path to complete the mission. Some rooms can only be opened through certain paths, while others require unlocking with specific items or abilities. The gameplay of The Knight Witch combines Bullet Hell with the use of magic. As you level up, different perks are also unlocked. If the Knight skill sets focus on increasing gun power, the witch skill sets improve spells through the game card system. Players can choose from a set of skills or a combination of both.
The game card system is built relatively easy to understand. Throughout the game, you will collect magic cards to make offensive or defensive moves. Each card has a specific amount of mana you gain from damaging enemies. The card has no limit on the number of uses, but you can only hold a certain number of cards at a time.
The player can manually aim the gun at the enemy in a 360-degree direction or use the Auto Aim auto-aim feature. If you are not confident in your ability to aim, leave this responsibility to auto-target the nearest enemy. However, when using this feature, the damage level will be weaker than manually aiming.

From the beautiful visuals to the clever game design, the entire experience leaves a good impression on players. The Knight Witch is promised to be the name mentioned in the nominations and wins many awards in different categories.
