We are Yacht Club Games: Creators of the game Shovel Knight! We quit our jobs and launched a successful Kickstarter. AMA
We are a team comprised of talent who have worked on titles such as Contra 4, A Boy and His Blob, Thor: God of Thunder, Mighty Milky Way, BloodRayne Betrayal, Double Dragon Neon, and many more! We’ve created a successful Kickstarter campaign for our game - an action adventure with awesome gameplay, memorable characters, and an 8-bit retro aesthetic - Shovel Knight! It has raised 150k so far, over twice our initial goal! We have 4 days left on our Kickstarter, and we’re still hoping to hit all of our stretch goals:
We are still trying to get through Steam Greenlight: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=132072322
