New indie outfit Yacht Club Games has sold 180K copies of its debut effort Shovel Knight.
It really is great to hear.SK is a really great game and an excellent break from today's futuristic *robot noise* over polished games. I enjoyed it and I plan to play it again.
Fresh new IPs like this deserve this kind of attention. Good job Shove Knight!
going without pay for months...really shows their dedication and passion...day 1 as soon as its released in the eu after hearing this...just to give these dedicated folk a bigger reward for their sacrifice!
Good for them, they earned it. I can't wait to see what game they come up with next.
Awesome. I hope they release it on Vita.
Yah, was hoping the same when I brought this article over, been fawning over SK and I want it for the Vita.
they better! Would love to play it on mine :D!
ohhhh just thinking how the game would look on that sweet OLED!! I'm gonna buy this once it is released on the Vita even when I already bought it from Steam.
40% on PC 33% on 3DS 27% on WiiU
Did anybody ask? Only PS4 fanboys care about sale figures. There is nothing to point out or prove, the game was successful and these devs earned it
lol why'd you bring up PS4? Nobody asked about that either.
What are you talking about? Shovel Knight isn't even on PS4.
Learn how to read. I am not talking about PS4 just how he points out sales statistics like a PS4 fanboys. My post does not talk about PS4, reading what a wonderful thing.
You could be a politician with that spin.
What part of his comment signifies him as a "Ps4 fanboy"? Please enlighten me, because if anything, YOUR comment shows that you're an "Xbox fanboy"
He was just saying, that only trolls would show such sales figures. And since most PS4 fanboys right now go nuts over sales figures, I can understand him pretty well and you people acting so ignorant about it, shows... well, you know ;)
@Chrischi1988 Just thank you! Someone with a brain, unlike mkis007 who says I spin my words. "Only PS4 fanboys care about sale figures." "I am not talking about PS4 just how he points out sales statistics like a PS4 fanboy." Yeah bud that is quite a spin especially if you don't understand english and can't read. My post was about PS4 fanboys not the PS4, and it is quite apparent. Nice to see so many of you can't read. As for Bigger Boss you apparently pull stuff out your ass. No where in my post mentions Xbone let alone the actual PS4. I am simply calling out the childish PS4 fanboys that love numbers and statistics, nothing more nothing less.
@LAWSON You were the first in this thread to bring up anything related to PlayStation; not even the OP did...therefore you are bringing the PlayStation into the conversation and are talking about PlayStation even in your own very thinly veiled way.
How stupid. PS4 fanboys only care about sales? What is this? End your foolish haterade at once.
@lawson , you should have only said did anybody ask? There , i fixed it for ya :)
But, wait, I thought PC gamers don't buy games. Seriously, though, I really like the game. I'm happy to have been one of those who bought this great game.
Are you paying attention Capcom?
It's good that all their sacrifices weren't for nothing.KUDOS to them :)
Still waiting for a European release date..
go shovel knight! ^-^
Shovel knight needs more $$$ :D bring it to other consoles,especially ps4 :D would love to play it.
