Hey digging aficionados! Whether you arrived here by browsing through Steam or are hitched in for the long haul by following our updates, we wanted to thank everyone for continuing to show their enthusiasm for Shovel Knight right here on our Steam Greenlight page! We just recently broke 1000 comments and we have read each and every one of them! Outpouring of enthusiasm and the occasional question are always welcome. Congratulations to snapplejaxs on the 1000th comment get! Send him a trading card or a hat for his troubles!
PAX Prime (and Panels) Approach!
And it’s coming up at the end of this month! Will Shovel Knight be playable there? We don’t know exactly, but it might be!
We’re participating in a panel, too! Our own Sean Velasco will be participating in “Doing Retro Right” on friday, August 30, from 3:30-4:30. We’re gonna talk about retro games and it’s going to be INFORMATIVE!
Are you going to PAX? We might also be there in person to dote on you lovingly. Find us on the PAX show floor and we might give you some shwag! Check these wonderful new buttons, packaged up brand new and waiting...
Shovel Knight Progress Report!Development on Shovel Knight is cooking; and we’re working nonstop to ensure that it’s great. We’re starting to shift our focus to a new set of core levels, creating the structure for challenge mode, and doing of design work for the next batch of stages. In the meantime, we’re working on visual designs for all things Shovel Knight! Check out these sketches of potential poster and promotional art!
A little sneak peak at what we’re doing with the Lost City - Mole Knight’s domain!
Propeller Knight's stage, a realm of harrowing heights and well timed leaps!
Perceptive relic hunters may come across this sub weapon: The Propeller Dagger! You can use this to zoom a short distance, damaging whatever is in your wake!
The end result of our first playable Boss Knight design sessions!
GIVE ME THE SOUNDTRACKStill have the trailer music stuck in your head? After the game’s release, the soundtrack will be available for download with a 'pay as you want' model, like many of Jake “Virt” Kaufman’s other soundtracks, right on his Bandcamp page. Give that a listen and you’ll have all sorts of energetic, catchy tunes which can pop into your brain when you least expect it!
Pre-orders are Now Available!Some of you may have noticed that our site has been updated with buttons to pre-order Shovel Knight! Steam pre-orders will absolutely be happening closer to release, but if you or anyone you know was interested in further supporting us through pre-orders, now you can! This includes standalone downloads and a Steam key!
