I WANT.
TeutonicPlague Apr 10 @ 1:12pm 
While the wait does and has hurt, I don't mind waiting extra time if that is what is needed for one of my most anticipated games of the year to live up to my expectations. Take all the time you need, Yacht Club!

PLEASE before the end of Spring Break. That would be sooooo nice. Please?

I'm with you Thicket as long as it released before August of 2014 lol. Seriously can't wait I have been checking steam non-stop everyday hoping that it will up :).
[$CAH$] thicket Apr 9 @ 2:01pm 
men, it's alright, we will sit here and wait it out as long as it takes! I don't care if it comes out in august 2016. We will stand firm! And keep checking every day for updates! Now WHO'S WITH ME!

Hey everyone, no news to report on a new formal release date, but we're still working tirelessly to see the game released soon. Expect to see Shovel Knight transition to the normal Store Page/Game Hub/Community within a week or two.

When is it coming out?
King Dickus Mar 31 @ 3:43pm 
i need this
BaalNocturno Mar 31 @ 2:21pm 
well i was so hyped for this day and now... man i cant wait xD
Pubstar87 Mar 31 @ 10:57am 
So, when is this game actually coming out for steam? Can we get on a notification list or something, so I don't have to keep checking back in?
Made Mar 30 @ 10:50am 
Push this game back again and I am going to turn green!
Mystic Fox Mar 30 @ 3:33am 
Nevermind. I guess as a kick-started game, its more about serving the players rather than keeping a 'bottom-line'.
Mystic Fox Mar 30 @ 3:24am 
... Gee, I hope Dark Souls II (PC) sales won't interfere with your release. I has hoping that Shovel Knight would come out well before DSII came out, but both game releases keeps getting closer and closer.

@popoki
Unfortunately we have had to push back the date a little bit further than we hoped with the 31st. You can see this update for a bit more information: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/yachtclubgames/shovel-knight/posts/775106

But we're close, people! So almost ready!
popoki Mar 27 @ 1:22pm 
I wanna preoder this so hard but apparently I can't do a dang thing 'till the 31st. Gonna be refreshing every half-second when that day rolls around.
TeutonicPlague Mar 27 @ 6:55am 
Can't wait for this game!
Yacht Club Games  [author] Mar 24 @ 1:53pm 
@Roxolani
Understandable, of course! We're expecting to launch at the $15 range (not counting launch discounts, etc).
Roxolani Mar 19 @ 11:27pm 
@Yacht Club Games
Interesting and I wish to buy this game, but price does matter. Your price?
Yacht Club Games  [author] Mar 17 @ 11:33am 
@Zima Zyma
Yes, Steam Achievements! Totaling around 40 or so right now!

@Newminwan2 and Fs|Freeze
Steam trading cards are on the docket for us. It's a perfect fit for a game with so many boss characters!
Fs | Freeze [FR] Mar 17 @ 10:47am 
Newminwan2 Mar 16 @ 10:04pm 
Is there going to be Shovel Knight trading cards? Can't wait for this game!
Roxolani Mar 16 @ 3:03pm

This looks like some kind of crazy duck tales and mega man combo. The graphics are totally old school. I'm looking forward to this one.

Hello again!

Our productivity is at maximum during this last crazy month of development! It's the home stretch! Text is being finalized, mechanics are being tuned, and we're making one last pass over the level design to adjust any rooms which stick out.

@logandudes
A Mac release is planned for sure, but won't be ready for the initial launch. We're hoping to have it prepared shortly after release.

@Toft
Thank you for those kinds words. It means a lot to read something like that, especially during the freefall that is the last few weeks of a project. It's been amazing to work with such a devoted team here, and I hope that all of their attention to detail really shines through in the final game.
Mr. Sir Mar 3 @ 4:38am 
I cant fucking wait for this game.
logandudes Feb 25 @ 2:23pm 
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PLEASE BE AVAILABLE ON MAC

This game really has the potential to be something special. I'm glad they aren't rushing its development to meet a deadline and are instead polishing the game up to make sure it is 100% complete before its release. This is the trademark of a developer that cares more about their consumer than their profit. I sincerely respect them for taking a note from 90's game developers like rare who put time, effort, and most of all heart into their games. It's sad to see many games released that are either rushed, incomplete, or being milked for profit. These guys really do seem to be the bright spot in a dark room. Good on you for your efforts Yacht Club Games.
