I hope so, Knack was probably the second best PS4 exclusive in its 1st semester, after Infamous Second Son.

Good fucking lord, why, Sony, why

If you have extra money lying around, why not make Puppeteer 2 or Patapon or anything but this garbage, good GOD.

I meant a game that targets the demographic you listed, which is literally Ratchet and Clank.

I'm impressed you compared Knack to a dedicated 3D Platformer like Crash Bandicoot then immediately went on the record to call Knack a 'lite platformer' . Well done man.
Did Mark Cerny piss in your cereal bowl this morning or something? Chillax dude.

Please tell me this is a joke.

Like... why would a Knack 2 even get made anyway? It got obliterated by the critics, and it's fair to say that if it wasn't a launch title for an immensely anticipated product then it would've faded into obscurity almost immediately.

I don't want to live on a planet where Knack 2 gets made and Puppeteer 2 doesn't.

I know people like to make fun of Knack, but I think there's potential for a really good platformer here.

Yes, please be true.

The game in co-op and Hard difficulty was a ton of fun. If they can address certain things it can legitimately be a good solo game as well.

What a waste of time and money if true. Could have used that cash and given it to some other dev to make an exclusive good game.

Yeah, if this thing is getting a sequel I sure hope The Order gets one aswell.
Well game budget was not same for both. Order sequel needs high production values which requires a lot of money compared to this cartoon platformer. Order 1886 sequel is possible only if RAD can convince Sony that they can make a better product or some one from Sony WW Studios are really interested and believed in it.

I never played Knack, but is the character so terrible ? Gameplay can be improved, easily.
I actually really think Knack's character design and visual aesthetic is dope, which is one of the main reasons why I bought the game at launch.

Shame about dat gameplay

I beat Knack a few days ago. It was ok. I had fun.

As usual the internet hate is overblown

I've never played Knack, but it looked like such a boring game from what I've seen. But it's always nice to see cartoony mascot games and there's always room to improve, so I'm okay with this.

thank knack
