The prospect of outstanding pixel-art gaming was then fulfilled when Shovel Knight was unveiled in 2013, with the game going on to have a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign. It then became a true evergreen title, with regular content updates — fulfilling Kickstarter stretch goals — keeping sales high years after release; it even had multiple amiibo figures. When the annals are written about Indie success stories of the 2010s, Shovel Knight will be front and centre.

Yet the sheer scope and volume of Shovel Knight expansions has somewhat restricted the core development team’s ability to make something entirely new.
