The game is still being developed, and it currently includes chapters 1 to 3— around 10 hours of content! There's one more chapter and an epilogue left, and they will be released as free updates to those who already own the game.

Join a ragtag band of misfits as they piece together how Ader, a one-eyed farmboy with seemingly impossible dreams, becomes the most celebrated knight the kingdom of Acazhor has ever known. This gorgeous, animated visual novel unravels in unexpected ways with a perfect blend of mystery, comedy and romance.

  • A grand, mysterious tale

    Come, traveler, and listen to the tale of Ader-sind of the Upperfield, the greatest knight the kingdom has ever known! The bravest! The most handsome! The... yeah, no, let's try this again.

  • Choose Ader's fate

    Take care as you play, because your decisions throughout Ader's tale will ultimately impact his relationships and decide the outcome of his story.

  • Fully voice acted and bursting with charisma

    Every character you meet on your journey through Acazhor is fully voiced and overflowing with personality. Dodge prying questions from an enigmatic sorceress, avoid the ire of your grumpy boss, scrape funds together for your next meal with a tone-deaf bard, engage in philosophical conversation with a giant tree man and more.

  • Beautiful illustration and animation

    Closer to a cartoon than simply a visual novel, every scene in The Hayseed Knight is hand drawn and lovingly animated to truly bring the characters and world to life.

  • Passion project

    Created primarily by one dedicated person over the last three years, The Hayseed Knight is a work of love and truly reflects the heart and soul poured into it.

  • Unique Fantasy World

    With deep lore and a history all of its own, the world of The Hayseed Knight extends much farther than this story and is ready for you to dive into using the in-game encyclopedia.
