Ludum Dare:

This game was created for the 33th edition of the Ludum Dare competition, in which you have to create a game with a certain theme within 48 hours. In this edition, the theme was "You are the Monster". That's why in this game you play as a Dragon, slaying knights who want to kidnap save the princess.
