GH17: Shovel Knight Interview

GH17: Shovel Knight Interview

Yacht Club Games, makers of the smash hit indie title Shovel Knight were awesome enough to sit down with us for an interview! We talk with two of the original founders of the company, Ian and Sean. They’ve been with Shovel Knight even before there was Kickstarter. We talk about their contributions to Yacht Club games, what they do day-to-day, and then dive into Shovel Knight. We hit on the Kickstarter, stretch goals, initial release, expansions, bringing the game to the Nintendo Switch, and the newest release, Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove. Plus, Ian and Sean talk a little about the final two major components coming to the game slated for 2017.
