: : : : : Shovel Knight
Shovel Knight is Yacht Club Games' love letter to retro 2D action game fans. Built with heavy inspiration from Mega Man and Ghosts and Goblins, and also so much more, Shovel Knight aims to deliver a carefully designed, challenging but not punishing action game that will captivate audiences old and new. With the slash of a shovel, the Shovel Knight shall save the day.

Believe it or not, but Shovel Knight is a love story. The Shovel Knight's story begins with him reminiscing about a lost loved one, his partner Shield Knight. When the pair was adventuring, she disappears as they hunt for a cursed amulet. Years later, the Tower where his this story began once more bristles with life -- dark forces gather. The Enchantress has raised an army of her own and the Shovel Knight is the only one who can save the day.

Stage to stage the Shovel Knight will battle enemies with his melee shovel slashes and leaping attacks. Movement must be precise and measured, allowing for Yacht Club to create very well planned levels and difficultly with intent. As the Shovel Knight defeats each boss, they provide a new power which allows the knight to access new areas of the game. Of course, each power also proves strong against certain enemies' weaknesses as well.

Shovel Knight is a game everyone will dig.
