Shovel Knight Will Surface As A Finished 8-Bit Adventure

Shovel Knight

Shovel Knight is staying true to its 8-bit, old school thinking, as it will be shipped out as a completed game sans all the downloadable content and additions that are slathered on most titles.

In an interview with Joystiq, Yacht Club Games founder Sean Velasco said that if there were any extra content in the Shovel Knight universe, then a sequel will be created. “I almost feel like the game industry has become very cynical,” said Velasco. “Everything is so microtransactiony. Everything is, like, taking advantage of customers.”

Velasco added that if Mega Man came out today, it would feature several bosses and charge gamers for more levels. He also feels that the 8-bit experience is still an integral form of entertainment. “Why can’t we continue to make games that have simple controls, that are fun, and have humor and levity?”

Shovel Knight is currently in Kickstarter mode until April 13th, and currently it’s reached $69,060 of its $75,000 goal. The game is tentatively set for a summer launch.
