Home Stretch and...It's PAX Time Again!
Shovel Knight Progress Update
We can see the light at the end of the tunnel! Shovel Knight is essentially complete, as we continue to polish and fix bugs that crop up. These little changes have made huge improvements in these final days. It’s so close! As production winds down, we’ll have a stable candidate for each version of the game for submission: and then we can announce a final release date! Stay tuned, and enjoy this icy screen shot:
PAX East Is Upon Us!
One year ago, Shovel Knight made its first playable debut at PAX East. Our Kickstarter campaign had not yet ended as we watched Shovel Knight storm castle Pridemoor and defeat King Knight countless times. Now, one year later, we're prepared for 2014! We’ll be in Boston, April 11th to the 13th, at Booth 997! We’ll have Shovel Knight on TVs and on the 3DS, in case you wanted to experience the portable stereoscopic magic. Be sure to stop by our booth to say hello, play through the final version of the game, and pick up some all new buttons or a shirt! Or we could just talk about video games. Everyone here is way behind on their gaming backlog though, so try not to spoil anything, especially about Dark Souls II!
Shovel Knight Shirts Now Available!
Yacht Club Games is happy to announce that we have our first merchandise available through a partnership with Welovefine! From Star Wars to Marvel to Adventure Time to... Shovel Knight! Check em out, and cover your body with what’s sure to be GOTY 2014!
Kickstarter Collaboration Alert: Hex Heroes!
Check out this new Kickstarter by our friends over at Prismatic Games! If you are a Wii U owner, and love party games, Hex Heroes is tailor made for you (it’ll be on PC too!). And guess who’ll be making a cameo appearance?
Not only will our beloved Blue Burrower bring Shovel Justice to the playing field, you’ll also find that Juan from Guacamelee, Lady Faye IV from Rogue Legacy, Subject W from Paradise Lost: First Contact, Max from Mutant Mudds, and Rusty from SteamWorld Dig will all be joining our hero in this quest for Party RTS ( Par-tee-ess ) action. And that list is still growing!
On top of that mountain of awesome, Grant Kirkhope, composer of the amazing music found in Banjo-Kazooie, Donkey Kong 64, and Perfect Dark (among other classics) will be composing the music for Hex Heroes! We are really excited about this project and think you should be too! Check out their new video over at their Kickstarter page, and let’s make Hex Heroes real!
That’s all for now, everyone! Hope to see you at PAX!
