Last week, I finally got around to playing Shovel Knight. I wanted to be ready for Yacht Club Games’ release of their first Shovel Knight DLC patch Plague of Shadows. When Shovel Knight was funded on Kickstarter, the game surpassed its initial funding goal of $75,000 many times over, finishing their campaign with over $300,000. The Plague of Shadows expansion DLC delivers several of the developer’s kickstarter stretch goals. If you’ve read my Shovel Knight review, you know I really dug the base game. Shovel Knight experience was so tightly wound, so polished, so close to perfection. It goes without saying I had high expectations for this DLC patch.
