    So here is something I donated to on Kickstarter, almost a year ago. Well, they just hit alpha and it will be available on Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, and PC on March 31st.

    Shovel Knight Trailer 2! - YouTube

    Features and modes include:

    Challenge Mode
    New Game+
    Three unlockable campaigns (play as three different bosses)
    Four player multiplayer (pretty sure it's just Wii U though)

    Cool! Funny, I tend to donate to kickstarters and then forget about them until they come out. Nice to see this one on my Wii U soon.

    After a delay, it's finally out in the US.

    From IGN: "... Arguably the best game released in 2014..." "9/10".

    Amazing game! By the way, do the bosses become organically easier if you get killed? I noticed one boss got easier after I died twice. Or maybe I just for better lol.

    It may sounds like a spoiler but I was wondering, do you have fulfill some certain conditions in order to get the best ending?

    As far as I know, the first and last dream sequences are the only ones that do anything, and it just changes a single line of dialog.

    Bought the game and just beat the first two bosses. Really solid so far.

    Near the end now. Loving every bit of it. The controls are just so crisp and precise, and the game in general is just plain fun. The only think I'd like would be the ability to instantly exit a level you've finished with everything you've found in tow ala Megaman X.

    I may have to try this one out. I don't do much with indie games, but when I see so many people say it's great...I might give it a go.

    That’s the most awkward “Nintendo Direct” that I have ever seen.
