Plot

The story follows a trio of knights: Romulus Blood (Keith Ferguson), a human knight and former head of the House of Blood who made a pact with a demon known as The Beast (Steve Blum), along with his younger brother Remus (Andrew Kashino) and Remus' wife and princess of Cavalier Sylvia Gradis (Megan Hollingshead) while they are at the end of their lives after the entire House of Blood is slaughtered under the orders of the king Kirk Gradis (Steve Blum) and his charismatic, tyrannical wife Fatima (Wendy Braun). Over the course of the game, The Beast grants each of the three characters a second chance at life as necromancers with the ability to turn their still living enemies into undead soldiers.

As the story progresses, each one of the three knights goes after several individuals responsible for taking part in their deaths and soon discover a fruit known as the Fruit of the Holy Tree, a demonic fruit that turns its user into a demon. It is later revealed that Fatima also controls a portion of undead servants of her own and even various genetically engineered soldiers called Ouroboros created by the mad wizard Lord Follis (Liam O'Brian).

It is later revealed by Fatima's younger brother the Jester (Thomas Browmhead) that Romulus was the one who was inadvertently responsible for the deaths of Sylvia and Remus. During the attack on the House of Blood, Romulus was one of the knights participating in the attack and was searching for the two of them in the midst of the chaos. When Kirk's knights captured them, Romulus summoned up all of his rage and slaughtered every one of htem, but accidentally killed Sylvia and Remus during his rampage. Later having earned the forgiveness of Sylvia and Remus, the three knights go to finally confront and ultimate kill Kirk Gradis, who had lost everything and became horrified by the uncontrollable powers Fatima had given him.

In the finale, the truth of Fatima's rise to power and the dark powers she gave to her subordinates is finally revealed: Fatima herself was once a human who made a pact with The Beast in a demonic realm called The Void and that the power was not really magic, it was an infection. Fatima also reveals that she created the Holy Tree in order to get rid of humanity's fear of death and creating her own ideal world in where humans are immortal and will no longer bear the burden of life. In an act of desperation, Fatima fuses herself with the tree and becomes a demon called Yggdrasil, only to be killed by the knights. In her last breath, she offers a crystalized stone made of demon blood to protect the knights from the beast, which they destroy in defiance toward's The Beast's desire to control the trio. Furious at their rebuke, The Beast warns the knights that they will die again and that they will go to hell after their deaths. In the game's epilogue, the trio admits that they will serve the punishment for their sins in vengeance as "undead knights."

PlayStation Store Error

On October 1, 2009, the Undead Knights demo was mistakenly replaced with the full game on the PlayStation Store, giving consumers an opportunity to download the full game for free.[1]
