Re: Shovel Knight

Looks pretty sweet. Reminds me of Castlevania or SMB.

Will it be coming out on Steam?

Re: Shovel Knight

Wow you haven't heard of this yet? It was Kickstarted last summer.
Release date is June 26 for Steam and Nintendo platforms. It's been a long wait.

Re: Shovel Knight

Yacht Club Games (the developer) is an offshoot of WayForward of Shantae fame.

The studio is generally known for amazing sprite art and creating difficult and breathtaking (albeit slightly flawed) platformers.







They also make a lot of cheap licensed games "to pay the bills".

Re: Shovel Knight

The game should be out on Thursday. I've been waiting on this project since I helped kickstart it way back when. I know that more than a few users in this thread are in the same boat.

Re: Shovel Knight

Game is now out for us backers.

IGN review: 9/10

Quote:
I absolutely love Shovel Knight. It doesn't only understand what retro gamers want; it also understands exactly what it is, copping plentiful inspiration from the past while forming it all into its own game. At seven or eight hours long your first time through (and a New Game+ mode once you beat it), it lasts longer than your typical throwback, and all of that time is well-spent, whether you're getting through a new stage, going back to an old one to grind for money to buy upgrades, or exploring its many secrets. It plays brilliantly, looks stunning, and sounds great.

Shovel Knight is my favorite game of 2014 so far, and a true testament to the power of the old-school. Whether you were weaned on an NES like I was, or don't yet know what you missed in a time before you were born, Shovel Knight is an absolute must-play.
Hope this review trend continues.

Really? I just checked and it said it won't be unlocked for another 7 hours. Not that I could play it now anyway (stupid job thing).

Re: Shovel Knight

If anyone wants music rips from the game, post requests and I'll get back to you as I find the music sheets. I can record from either the 3DS or PC version, your choice.

Cool and pretty smart of Yacht Games to give this guy a spotlight on how he did it rather than just write a lamenting post about cheaters ravaging their game. Also, interesting read.

Old news but I just saw this and thought it looked awesome.

Xbox Shovel Knight spoiler alert.

Looks like they toned down the Battletoads difficulty for the coddled generation though.
