After the game releases, the soundtrack will be available digitally with a 'pay as you want' model, like many of Jake's soundtracks. However, ALL Kickstarter backers will have early access the Shovel Knight soundtrack as it is created. Lastly, there will be some other fun stuff that will only be on the CD!
Shovel Knight is currently announced for (Windows) PC,Wii U and 3DS! After that, the sky's the limit and we want to put Shovel Knight on as many platforms as possible, depending on our time and resources. We all own Vitas, PS3's, and Xboxes, and would love to see Shovel Knight on there too! As soon as we have something to announce, you will be the first to know!!
We're planning to do EFIGS for Shovel Knight initially. That's English, French, German, Italian, Spanish. If there is interest, we can certainly look into adding more. If you are interested in helping to translate the game, feel free to contact us and maybe we can get even more languages into the initial release!
Shovel Knight has an always-on internet authentication to improve the multiplayer experience and save your game on the cloud! Nah, just kidding. Our PC version will be DRM free, but any other platforms the game is released on ( Steam, for instance ) would obey the rules of that service.
YES!!!! We have plans to localize the game into EFIGS (English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish) and have it playable on consoles and handhelds from those regions. Have no fear, we have every intention of releasing this on the EU e-shops and with enough support from other regions, we can expand that even further! Our ultimate goal is get Shovel Knight in the hands of every human alive.
