Update # 8: Collaboration Day!

Posted by Yacht Club Games (Creator)

Beloved backers, all we ever talk about is Shovel Knight! Yacht Club Games! Me me me! My my my! Now Now Now!

Well today, let’s do something to change that. Today, we are excited to talk about projects we love and are doing collaborations with!

Story War

A card game that gives you an excuse to yell at each other and come up with fake explanations for why...what’s not to love!?  For those that don’t know, it’s a game where you battle your friends by telling stories and making up stuff about the cards in play.  And the Story War team has bestowed upon us the great honor of having a Shovel Knight card in their game:

How could you not want what is surely the greatest card ever created by man?! Unless I guess if you don’t like always being completely overpowered.  

There are two ways to get the fancy Shovel Knight card:

  • If you backed Shovel Knight and you’ve contributed $10 or more to Story War

  • If you pledged for the Story War Deluxe Package

Not bad, huh?  And hey, why not just throw this card into everything you play.  Pretty sure you could use a Shovel Knight card in poker and win every time, no questions asked. After all, he is the King of Spades! Bwahahahaha!

If you are interested, and missed the chance to support their Kickstarter, please check out their page:

The Reward - Tales of Alethrion

Adventure! Magic! Swordplay! Friendship! Animation amazingness. Watch it! Now! Seriously WATCH IT ( there’s a little blood and skin, so watch out, kiddies! ):

The Reward is an animated short we were all in love with; when we found out they wanted to turn it into an animated series, our brains simultaneously imploded from overwhelming joy.  These guys are so close to funding, but:

If funded, they have agreed to put Shovel Knight in an episode!  And we all know the only possible outcome of that is a spin off, Emmy award winning animated series starring Shovel Knight that is then turned into an emotionally riveting off-broadway musical with stirring films and epic novelizations to follow! It’s a sure thing, so let’s make it happen!

Sharing the Greenlight

By now we’re sure you’ve heard about our ongoing Steam Greenlight campaign. You probably even voted “Yes” (we hope)! The battle for Steam’s approval is a long one, however, so spread the word if you can! Here, let us show you how by listing a few others that we find interesting/love to death!

Legend of Dungeon  - Developed by: Robot Loves Kitty. We talked to the devs at PAX and not only is their game amazing, but they are really nice people. We are way excited for this game, so you should check it out too. It’s gonna explode!

Delver’s Drop - Developed by: Pixelscopic. Pixelscopic has been really good to us; they dispense Kickstarter wisdom and excellent gameplay like a delicious candy machine. And not only that, but their game, Delver’s Drop, is the real deal. The parallax on the walls sold us!

Divekick - Developed by: Scrilla Jones. Are you ready to experience the height of meta fighting mind games? What about a joke that has been taken way too far? Either way, Divekick has you covered! We cracked up laughing when we saw this game at PAX East and its a lot of fun too!

      Drat! I missed out on Story War, now I'm going to have to get the card on eBay. I did get in on Delver's Drop though. That one will rank right up there with the Shovel Meister!
