While I have no particular memories of this show (Perhaps because its production run ended when I was only 3 years old), I personally feel that the children’s game shows of my youth were very creative and innovative in comparison to what I generally see on the television nowadays (Exceptions permitting of course).
Knightmare was a British children’s show aired between 1987 and 1994, and was an adventure game show where a team of three children had to lead their fourth team member through a medieval castle environment. The catch is that the fourth team member known as the “Dungeoneer” was sightless and had to rely on the guidance of the three others to escape. Of course the environments relied on blue screen technology and was essentially a virtual reality game show…. but it has had some degree of popularity since its run ended.
However as part of Youtube Geek Week, the show’s original creator Tim Child alongside a number of new and returning cast members returned to do a full-blown one off special of Knightmare. In this special it is not children but popular Youtube stars who appear as participants with Ashens taking the lead as Dungeoneer with Danisnotonfire, AmazingPhil and Emmablackery as his guides.
