Update #5

Update #5: WE’RE FUNDED!

Wow. Wow! Thanks to you, our amazing backers, we are happy to say that WE DID IT! SHOVEL KNIGHT IS A HAPPENING THING! Let’s Celebrate!

We are so appreciative and thankful, we could cry. It’s been a crazy ride, and we still have a long campaign ahead, but WE’RE FUNDED! Were you worried? We weren’t worried. Ok, we were worried.

But! Let the celebration be short! We have lots of updates to put together, and few other goodies.
Check out our awesome Stretch Goals if you haven’t yet, and stay tuned for big excitement tomorrow. I think we’re gonna take the rest of the night off... well, maybe we'll answer a message or two. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

      Looks like PAX was kind to this project.
      Also: If Fort Knight isn't a thing, he should be a thing.

      Thanks for all your support guys, but as many of you have mentioned, the campaign is not yet over! we'll still be doing updates and live streams and all kinds of interactions with you, our best fans, in the hopes of getting you guys as excited as we are that Shovel Knight will be out. (though it sounds like some of you are already past that excitement threshold!). Keep talking up Shovel Knight to all your friends and we'll see where this next fortnight takes us! ( i had to resist writing Fort Knight, lol)
