It's so weird... After playing a bunch of Indie Games as of late, including Super Meat Boy
, and the Bit.Trip
series, I've been paying more an more attention to the Indie scene.
In this case, there's a new upcoming Indie Game I heard about, developed by a new developer called "Yacht Club" (who I think are made of people from WayForward, who have been making a LOT of awesome games as of late). I first heard about it through this video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBI0rO-PdSEShovel Knight
... Just the name alone has me intrigued! The game looks pretty cool, too! And if that's not enough:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KcP3yp6w7Pw
GAME GRUMPS PROMO, the best kind of promotion!
Not to mention, Two Best Friends are in on this!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVzPqut6hNA
Unfortunately, the only thing people can talk about with this video is whether or not they "copied" Game Grumps, which is stupid, considering they came out within a day of each other, and both series's feel like they would take longer than that to do a proper episode.
If you're interested in supporting them, go to their Kickstarter (4 days left, and already met their goal):http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/yachtclubgames/shovel-knight
Or donate via PayPal:http://yachtclubgames.com/shovel-knight-paypal/
You can also vote to have this game available on Steam:http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=132072322
The PayPal has multiple goals, in which the higher they go, the more awesome options the game will have, including new playable characters and battle multiplayer!
I'd donate myself, if I had the money to spare... Not that it matters much, since, well...
...Wonder what that mystery stuff will be...
Lastly, here's one of the "boss characters" that will be playable (he'll play differently and have a different story):
All totally awesome stuff! Looking forward to it, definitely!
