New Licence: Shovel Knight

We're proud to present our latest licence: Shovel Knight. The indie hit that started with a simple Kickstarter campaign turned out to be a hidden gem and garnered worldwide, critical acclaim with scores averaging and exceeding 85% as well as numerous awards. Press and fans alike grew to love the little 8-bit knight and his shovel and now we offer the first items in a new line of merchandise from Shovel Knight.

Shovel Knight is a classic 2D sidescrolling action adventure game which is heavily influenced by games from the old era of the Nintendo Entertainment System, borrowing elements from classics such as Super Mario Bros, The Legend Of Zelda, MegaMan, DuckTales and Castlevania.

The graphics are kept in a simple 8bit scheme just like the ancestors of current gaming systems had and bring a bit of nostalgia to the future.

Developer Yacht Club Games keeps the fans happy by releasing free DLC for the game, stating that the series will see a continuation in 2016 with at least 2 new campaigns and new game modes for the different plattforms, ensuring that the old-school flavor still runs strong.
