Update #26: Shield Knight and More!
Hey Shovelers and Shovelettes! Our office is set up. We are going full steam. We have stuff to tell you. So, it’s that time again for another Shovel Knight update!
Design Hangouts have been Happening!
As some of you may know, our $75 tier allows backers to join us for design meetings and brainstorm sessions. We have done two so far, and we just wanted to mention how well they have gone. We were worried it might degenerate into a chaotic meme-fest, but we have been consistently delighted at the awesome discussions that we’ve all had, and the great ideas the group has come up with! Thank you to everyone who has been participating! If you didn’t pledge for the hangouts, you can at least peep this awesome whiteboard image from last meeting, where we brainstormed some potential mobility for the playable Order of No Quarter!
Surveys Coming Next Week!
Finally, we’re going to be sending out surveys to all of our wonderful backers next week! If you were worried you missed it, you didn’t! You’ll be able to cough up all of your information to us soon, so hold on tight!
Streaming Games Tonight!
The Yacht Club is fully assembled this week, with all members together in one room! How are we gonna celebrate? By streaming Monaco and eating Doritos Tacos Locos flavored Doritos! We can play other stuff too and talk about Shovel Knight. It’s gonna be fuuuuunnnnnn! Make sure to come tonight at 7PM PDT~!
A Sneak Peek!
We have been working really really hard on Shovel Knight, and it’s starting to show. We’re itching to show everyone a LOT more very soon, but for now, here’s a little sneak peak at what we’re doing with the Lost City - Mole Knight’s domain!
Introducing: Shield Knight!
Sometimes the best offense is a good defense, and Shield Knight knows it. Wielding a pair of Asymmetrical Shields, she deflects both melee and projectile attacks easily before getting into range and crushing her foes! For years, Shield Knight and Shovel Knight were inseparable partners in adventuring; with their expert use of unconventional weapons, they worked as one. Now, Shield Knight’s fate is unknown, but Shovel Knight’s goal is clear: he must journey to find Shield Knight, his lost beloved.
Pros: Confident, Powerful, and Tenacious
Cons: Occasional Recklessness
