About Balancelot

Group of students created first version of Balancelot during school project. Balancelots was well received by gamers and it caught the attention of YouTubers as well. Jestercraft helped during the development, but also took a crusade to get the game available worldwide.

Poor squire dreams to attend and conquer kingdom jousting tournament. By being poor, he can't afford a horse. Unicycle happens to be close enough, so the epic journey may begin!

Player gets to use controller or keyboard to balance the clumsy but fully functional unicycle. Thrust with your sharpened lance when encountering threats from local mythical monsters. Climbing over the dead enemies with your unicycle may be the last climb you take. Crush your enemies, drive before them and hear the lamentation of your one-wheeler!
