Also, a few notes from the "1 month later" blog post where they announced 180,000 copies sold: http://yachtclubgames.com/2014/08/sales-one-month/

After the Kickstarter project ended, we all discussed our sales goals. The number that most of us settled upon was….when all was said and done, 150,000 copies sold in total. That was our high point!

It’s been a crazy ride! We’re not done yet though. We’re going to keep working our hardest to keep this game loved, played, and selling like hotcakes. Our new goal is the quest to 1 million sold, to truly solidify Shovel Knight as a modern platinum classic!

Basically what I was going to say...without all the spaces at least.


They're really pumping out some great DLC for the game too, I hope they put that creativity into a sequel.

This was one of the best games of the generation so far. Its quality has nothing to do with the nostalgic-focus of the presentation.

Rather, the game is simply a masterclass in level-design. Not only is the pacing and challenge finely tuned, it manages to provide very varied gameplay from very simple mechanics. The variety and freshness of design is consistent throughout the entire game and it never holds the player's hand despite new, difficult challenges appearing on nearly every screen.

All of this while never feeling cheap or frustrating when the player dies. The controls, level design, and overall breadth of challenges makes this one of the finest platformers in the history of the genre.

The Steam version is in the general vicinity of 400k, so this game has a pretty healthly split across platforms.

I've bought it twice (Wii U and 3DS) and will likely buy it again when it has a sale for other platforms just to try out the version specific boss battles.

Deserves more tbh - they better have a Switch retail version including the Amiibo in works as well. Could benefit from the launch hype and sell some extra copies.

I probably would have bought a Wii U and 3DS copy if there had been cross save, but there isn't, is there? I'll see if there's a Switch version in the future.
