Knack looks like one of these things you trot out to show off how many particles you can juggle onscreen at once. The protagonist, I mean — that’s his name.
Directed by PlayStation 4 lead architect Mark Cerny, Knack the game is about a creature composed of ancient relics (or put another way, a bunch of ancient relics bound together and made conscious) helping humanity battle goblins, who’ve emerged as a lost species (just go with it). While Knack stands just three feet tall, he can glom on bits of metal, ice and more, transforming into a colossal wrecking machine you’ll unleash to fend off the invading goblin horde.
