Although I had a feeling Shovel Knight would take off, I didn’t think it would take off as much as it did. I mean the little guy has a cameo in pretty much everything from puzzle games to rhythm romps now, and even managed to snag appearances from God of War‘s Kratos and Battletoads‘ trio.
But this level of success didn’t just come out of nowhere: it was slow going. After all, the game originally launched back in 2014! I talked with Yacht Club Games’ Sean Velasco and David D’Angelo about the past, present and future of Shovel Knight.
