Out now for Wii U, 3DS, PS4, PS3, PS Vita, Xbox One, Windows, Mac, and Linux!!
Shovel Knight is a sweeping classic action adventure game with awesome gameplay, memorable characters, and an 8-bit retro aesthetic created by Yacht Club Games. You play as the eponymous Shovel Knight, a small knight with a huge quest. Shovel Knight has come to this valley with two goals: to defeat the evil Enchantress and save his lost beloved. He wields a ShovelBlade; a multipurpose weapon whose techniques have now been lost to the ages. Always honest and helpful, Shovel Knight is a shining example of the code of Shovelry: Slash Mercilessly and Dig Tirelessly!
However, between Shovel Knight and his beloved stands a cadre of villainous knights. These terrible foes, known as The Order of No Quarter, have been dispatched to prevent Shovel Knight from reaching the Enchantress at any cost!
Shovel Knight is out! You can order the game now for PC, Mac, Linux and Steam below. If you would like to learn more about Shovel Knight’s incredible journey, you can find out more information on our Kickstarter.
And if you want as much Shovel Knight as possible, order the deluxe version of the game which comes with a digital manual and, once ready, a digital art book!
