Yacht Club Games Reports on Shovel Knight's Sales

Over a year after their initial Kickstarter announcement, Yacht Club Games has had their first game, Shovel Knight, released for a little over a month.

It can all be found on their official blog, but we'll highlight the main points of interest here.

This is one of those games that I would use as a highlight when trying to explain just how great some of the games from back in my childhood were, because it takes elements from all of them and mixes them all up into an unforgettable joy ride of new experiences and comforting nostalgia, with a bit of hair-tearing difficulty in certain areas mixed in for good measure.

It's truly a modern-day example of some of the best traits of classic games; anyone who hasn't given this a chance is missing out, and it deserves to be a landmark and guide-post to future indie developers on how to do a classic-style game the right way.

I've been debating on buying this for my 3ds let alone pc. However I feel when it gets announced for the ps4 (hopefully soon) I would much prefer to play on my home console of choice to relive that nostalgia I've been craving since my ps1/snes/nes days

Get on Wii U if you have one

As much as I want to play it,I know it will be free with Gold or Plus when it releases for MS and Sony systems or shortly after.Every indie game I have bought or though about buying seems to come to those services.I like to get my moneys worth out of Plus and gold and can't if I buy the games before they add them.

The game deserves your direct buy, dude. Don't wait for a middle man to make it a freebie; support the developers directly for a job well done.

Shovel Knight is one of the most fun games I've played this year, or even from these past few years. While it might eventually become free, which I almost doubt but it could happen, it really does deserve a purchase.
