Shovel Knight

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!

"Shovel Knight is planned for release this winter, but you can preorder the game now for PC/Mac/Linux and Steam below (you’ll have to wait for WiiU/3DS). If you would like to learn more about Shovel Knight’s incredible journey, you can find out more information on our"

I am glad Yacht Club Games is planning on launching Shovel Knight in the winter, I enjoy dispensing Shovel Justice a bit before Christmas. If you were interested in boarding the Shovel Train to Awesome town, you can pre-order the game from the Yacht Club site on the Humble Store. $15 gets you the game DRM free on Linux, Mac and Windows + a Steam Key. $25 nabs you the same + PDF Artbook & Manual.

Back this on Kickstarter!
Shovel Knight is a new game coming out later this year for PC, Wii U, and 3DS. It's being headed up by Sean Velasco, who is responsible in part for Contra 4, the new A Boy and His Blob, and Double Dragon Neon. This guy knows retro games.

Shovel Knight looks like a perfect amalgam of Mega Man, Duck Tales, and Castlevania. It obeys the NES color pallet for that authentic 8-bit feel, but you can tell the NES may not have been able to push this.

Everything about this trailer screams awesomeness to me. The music is perfect, the graphics are gorgeous, and the gameplay looks incredibly fun, if tricky.
