so many differences with the final outcome.
its mind boggling.

Any plans for PC exclusive content? A boss fight against GLaDOS or a TF2 item + themed level where you face off against the RED team in a similar fashion to Xbox One's BattleToads level? (SK IS blue by default)

@Puzzle Solver Yeah, you're cool. Consider keeping unnecessarily venomous comments to yourself.

This game doesn't deserve to be featured in ANY part of Smash Bros. Disgusting.

@Oat Meal
We're only as good as everyone lets us be! Channeling the positive energies of the universe! That's high praise though, haha. I can't believe we pulled past MMX! Hope we can continue to up the ante in future updates!

Totally understand! Thanks for helping your friend get a hold of the game too. :)

Good news, everyone!

After a lengthy campaign, Shovel Knight finally returns his new store page:

Check it out!
Yacht Club Games  [author] Jun 23, 2014 @ 12:42pm 
Haha, thank you for staying tuned! I know its not fun to experience a delay like that, but I hope you enjoy the game just the same!
I can say, without any doubt, that the music will deliver. I hope the rest does too, of course. :)

Easier said than done! You have a whole lot of levels to clear ahead of you!

Glad to have you at the ready! I hope our game proves vastly superior to another day at work!

We ran into a snag with the Steam Summer Sales, but we're working through it. Apologies for the confusion...the best laid plans, etc, etc.

@Turbanmaster™ (!!!)
Us too, haha!
Hentai363 Jun 23, 2014 @ 12:02pm 
Sooo excited
Native Jun 22, 2014 @ 2:07pm 
Why cant we pre-purchase this ? the release date is right around the corner.
AmBrew Jun 22, 2014 @ 12:57am 
Counting down the nanoseconds until the release! I have taken some time off work so I can fit more Shovel Knight in :P
Bariand Jun 21, 2014 @ 6:46pm 
Can't wait! Wanna dig the Enchantress' face for more than a year! :D Jun 20, 2014 @ 9:52am 
sooo excited for this game. When my friend showed me this game last year, i fell instantly in love with this game. Great music, nostalgia.

Just a few more days, hell yeaaah
IKS Jun 18, 2014 @ 10:09pm 
"I am so excited for this. This is my most anticipated game for this year.". And also a last year =) This was supposed to be a keen part of my christmas plans, im so glad it finally arrives. Good things comes to those who wait and now its almost here. Thank you Yacht, rather good-finalized game later than uncompleted some months ago <3
Chakane048 Jun 18, 2014 @ 5:51pm 
I hope there're cross-buy and cross-play options for 3DS and WiiU, cuz I'm gonna buy both.
crumpled666 Jun 18, 2014 @ 4:26pm 
8 Days!
TheKhanMan Jun 17, 2014 @ 7:11pm 
I am so excited for this. This is my most anticipated game for this year.
Yacht Club Games  [author] Jun 17, 2014 @ 10:06am 
This will prove to be an exciting week for us, and I hope next Thursday is exciting for you all.

Meta content is all done (hopefully)! Let's see if that means store page soon too!
Viral the Nightmare Jun 11, 2014 @ 1:31pm 
I really look forward to getting this ASAP. Looks like absolute fun.
Not A Manticore Jun 10, 2014 @ 11:43pm 
When can we hope to see the steam store page :D
AMG | Thicket Jun 6, 2014 @ 3:16pm 
yayayayayayayayay! JUNE 26th! Our patience will now come to fruition!
Yacht Club Games  [author] Jun 5, 2014 @ 6:16pm 
Hello everyone, Yacht Club Games is extremely proud to announce that Shovel Knight will begin his adventure on June 26th. I would post a larger announcement, but let's just transition to the Steam store page and community hub soon instead!

Apologies for this. Once we chose to delay our date (but were unsure when it was delayed to) it was difficult to revise this information properly. Some websites won't update without a new date to commit to, etc.
Cozzie Jun 5, 2014 @ 3:46am 
It's near impossible to find when this'll be released. The devs website, this page, the latest trailer, kickstarter and the game site all have different release dates that are all past. Hopefully I'll remember to check back at some point and see it's been released because GOD IT LOOKS SO GOOD.
Yacht Club Games  [author] Jun 4, 2014 @ 12:26pm 

Well...I suppose this is what live streaming services were made for... let me get some hot sauce ready. You know...just in case.

Yes, haha! We've been in contact with Gaijin Goombah since around the Kickstarter days. Loved what he did with the Shovel video, it was a pleasant surprise to see that pop up! Especially to help shine some light on one of the most versatile weapon choices of all time! The multifunction folded spade is a candidate for new main weapon in Shovel Knight X!
Made Jun 3, 2014 @ 9:50pm 
I demand photographic evidence of said hat eating! This would make up for the horrible release date predictions!
McQ Jun 3, 2014 @ 7:14pm 
Hey, Yacht Club! Can't wait for Shovel Knight! So, have you guys ever heard of Gaijin Goombah? He's a youtuber who explains the culture in gaming, and he actually did a quick video on Shovel Knight and how his use of the shovel as a weapon is actually accurate in real-life culture; Shovel Knight may not be as ridiculous as he seems! Here's a link to his video! (He's actually the reason me and some of my friends really want this game now, so check it out!)
Yacht Club Games  [author] Jun 2, 2014 @ 7:58pm 
If we don't have news to announce sometime this week then I will eat my captain's hat!

Never say never! We're going to focus on stretch goal campaigns first, but if we find a good groove for it and if everyone gets a kick out of the alternate Knight campaigns, then we may very well keep the fun going!

@Jon Bro
We don't mean to pin the state of the game's release on any one service or platform. As the development team, we're ultimately responsible for where we're at. It was our decision to delay the game based on our team's personal level of quality! Now that the game is all but out, we're working with everyone to make sure all is lined up for release. We hope everyone will be able to enjoy Shovel Knight as a complete, playable from start-to-finish, game. As a developer, I'm happy to see that there are services and players interested in both sides of the game spectrum -- Early Access and the traditional all-in-one release.

sharpnova what games have you developed? probly as many as i have. and you dont seem to understand what i was saying, i guess youre not as "sharp" as you think you are. have a good day stay in school
Wig Bang Jun 1, 2014 @ 4:31pm 
Jon Bro.. you seem to know so little about game development.. or even games in general that you should never EVER even be allowed to post here.
Archmage Arminodius [Frbll] Jun 1, 2014 @ 6:45am 
come on shovel knight...
Ryan3D May 31, 2014 @ 11:37pm 
how does The Forest and the Stomping ground get to come out and not shovel knight? those two games are broken as shit and i dont see how they are even early access material but we cant have shovel knight, i would pay $20 for shovel knight half finished. from what i seen your game is almost 100% complete, but the foest is maybe 5% finished and broken and steam put it out...... all i wanna do is just be a knight and shovel things.
Swase May 31, 2014 @ 8:55am 
I wonder if the other boss knights will be added later. I dont care if they are dlc either. If this game is as good as it seems I should have no trouble shelling out a little extra for more playable boss knights.
Squinty John May 30, 2014 @ 8:32pm 
When will it be out on Steam and Wii U? It says April, but that was over a month ago.
Yacht Club Games  [author] May 30, 2014 @ 1:11pm 
We're still waiting on the final details from everyone! We're like...95% through finding out everything.

I know this doesn't help the situation at all, but this wait is killing us too!
Starkid May 29, 2014 @ 7:26am 
need to pre order
Mikaroni May 26, 2014 @ 6:45pm 
I cannot wait for this game to come out! I am super excited!
syruphant May 21, 2014 @ 3:54am 
What's about the WiiU version ?
Metro Koochin May 20, 2014 @ 10:30am 
Awesome! By the way, it's really great that you guys take the time to respond to our questions. Not many devs do that, much appreciated. Also, good luck with the launch!

Hello everyone! I news to report! We're not much for sitting idle though,as we're using this time to get more testing done on the PC side while delving in to the Mac/Linux versions as well.


Yes, in addition to us lining up the release date so we're ready. and putting together finishing touches on the store and Steam related content (Trading Cards, Badges, etc)
Metro Koochin May 19, 2014 @ 7:15am 
So is the game at the stage where it's being reviewed by Steam for release on this platform?
Yacht Club Games  [author] May 12, 2014 @ 1:55pm 
Hello again, once again! Last Friday we posted a little more details about where we're at over on our Kickstarter page:

We'll also be doing some casual streaming on the regular this month (in honor of Mega May). You can always catch us there if you want to hit us up with any particular questions. I know the feeling that the 99.9% done mark may just as well be the 0% mark at this point. Hopefully we can all get through it together!
