Game informationEdit

Shovel Knight is a video game in development by Yacht Club Games. The title is the studio's first game and is a downloadable title scheduled to be released for the 3DS, PC, and Wii U during the winter of 2013. In 2013, the game was Greenlit by the Community on Steam. The game is directed by Sean Velasco and will include music composed by Jake Kaufman and Manami Matsumae.

Shovel Knight is a side-scrolling platformer similar in style to Mega Man and DuckTales. The eponymous Shovel Knight must defeat the Black Knight, the eight members of "The Order of No Quarter," and The Enchantress, their leader. Shovel Knight's main weapon is a sharpened shovel, which the player can use to slash at enemies. The player can also use the shovel like a pogo stick or dig up the ground looking for treasure.

Shovel Knight was announced on March 17, 2013 when Yacht Club Games launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the title. When the campaign was over, the developer collected donations totaling $311,502, over four times their requested amount of $75,000. Since the completion of the campaign, the developer has used the game's Kickstarter page to post further updates including information on each member of "The Order of No Quarter."

Prior to its release, Yacht Club Games allowed the general public and members of the press to play Shovel Knight at PAX East 2013 and the 2013 E3 Expo.

  • The game was sent to the Grumps by the game's composer, Jake Kaufman, who is friends with Arin.
  • Shovel Knight, along with Arin, Danny, and Ross & Orph will be appearing as playable characters in the upcoming game Hex Heroes.
  • Game Grumps lovely Vitas Varnas appears as a portrait in the Hall of Champions level of the game.
  • Arin says in the episode "The Poop Tease Squeeze" that even though he backed enough towards the Shovel Knight Kickstarter project, he didn't submit an image of himself to the developers which is why he was absent from the Hall of Champions. He said it would've been the Grump head version of him to make it obvious that it's him. He was eventually added into the Hall of Champions in update 1.1 on July 24th, 2014, with the patch notes reading "Tweak: Fixed a portrait and added one slacker to the Hall of Champions". The episode Hall Champion brings attention to this.
  • Matt from Super Best Friends appears as a portrait in the Hall of Champions.
  • Arin said during the playthrough that Shovel Knight is one of his all-time favorite games.
  • Game Grumps made a video about amiibo figure of the main character. It was subsequently uploaded to GrumpOut and the official Nintendo of America YouTube channel.
