The critics have spoken! Shovel Knight was an enormous success at PAX East! Our booth was busy the whole time with media, fans, and other devs! We made tons of friends as we gave out our brochures and buttons, worked the show floor, and got the word out about Shovel Knight. Check out some shots of the show floor and the Shovel Knight booth below!
Best of all, we got to see the reactions on player’s faces as they played the game, which made us pretty misty eyed. The outpouring of support has been truly amazing.
But it was way too long to be away! Now that we are back, we promise to you, our wonderful backers and fans, a flow of DAILY updates! Character reveals, stretch goals, live streams of the game being played, and more! We’re gonna bury you in Shovel Knight awesomeness!
Our first live stream of the game is going to be at 5pm Pacific Time this Friday, March 29. We are going to be playing the game demo we showed at PAX, answer questions, and just have some fun. So get pumped for that!
Lastly, we wanted to share one more really cool thing.... Propeller Knight! The next member of the Order of No Quarter!
This is Propeller Knight. He commands the Enchantress' flying machine with the cocksure attitude of a sky pirate! With his Heli-Helmet, he can zoom short distances with ease. Shovel Knight encounters Propeller Knight on top of the aircraft as it zooms through the sky; earth fights against air in a true battle of elements!
• Pros: Talented Fencer, Mechanical Heli-Helmet, Debonair!
• Cons: Arrogance, Lightweight, Outrageous Accent!
