Shovel Knight, the 8-bit indie game being developed by a team of ex-WayForward Technologies staff, has been fully funded thanks to contributions via Kickstarter.
As previously reported, Shovel Knight is being developed by a studio named Yacht Games. Inspired by both old and new games like Mega Man, Castlevania and Dark Souls, it’s being developed for the PC, Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. You’ll play as the ShovelBlade-wielding Shovel Knight, out to rescue his beloved.
With 12 days to go, Shovel Knight has reached over $80,000 in contributions. The game has cleared its first stretch goal, which means that the game will be getting an in-game music player. At the $90,000 mark, Yacht Club will add achievements to the game.
