Shovel Knight Developers Now Letting Backers Vote On Playable Bosses


Yacht Club Games’ upcoming retro-inspired 2D platformer, Shovel Knight, will allow one to play as the Shovel Knight himself, but also as three of the boss characters in the game. Just which three bosses will be playable is being left up to the game’s Kickstarter backers to decide.


There are ten bosses in the game: King Knight, Mole Knight, Plague Knight, Polar Knight, Propeller Knight, Specter Knight, Tinker Knight, Treasure Knight, the Black Knight, and the Enchantress. You can read up on each one and gameplay ideas for them here.
