At this years PAX East in Boston, I got to play a very well Nintendo Entertainment System-like style indie game that I fell in love with, Shovel Knight. Yacht Club Games’ Kickstarter project Shovel Knight raised a total of $311,502 in its crowdfunding campaign, which closed this past Saturday. The project reached its initial $75,000 goal in late March. It also achieved a number of stretch goals, including the guaranteed addition of a local four-player battle arena mode in which all of the game’s bosses will be playable.
Shovel Knight is in development for PC, Linux, Mac, Wii U and 3DS, and is also trying to earn community votes on [url=http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=132072322]Steam Greenlight[/url] service as well.
