Good news, everyone! Shovel Knight has leveled up once again and will now be coming to Mac and Linux in addition to PC, 3DS, and Wii U. No word on when that'll happen but Yacht Club Games is shooting for a 2013 release.

The title will also likely feature a pair of bosses as playable characters. One is a sure thing, the other's stretch goal being roughly $10,000 shy with just under a week to go. Said additions would entail unique abilities and slight alterations to the narrative. Of course, the Kickstarter still has a ways to go if fans want to see some of the more exciting additions like the gender swap and multiplayer modes.

A video cassette guide to Shovel Knight

This isn't the first cheesy "How to Win" video My Life in Gaming has put out, but it's perhaps the most fitting given the subject matter and its influences. Ready to become a Shovel Knight master?

In almost every conceivable way, Shovel Knight is a throwback to how videogames used to be a few decades ago. Everything positively oozes that retro style, save for blowing into a cartridge before firing it up. Even the ...more

Very Quick Tips: Shovel Knight

Shovel Knight is an amalgamation of a lot of old school 2D platformers, most notably Zelda II: The Adventure of Link and Mega Man. As such, it involves a decent amount of tricky jumps, boss fights, and some adventure elements that are a bit more cryptic than the average game. Here are some basic tips to help you on your way to New Game+.more

Although our review is for the Wii U version of Shovel Knight, I had a chance to test out all three versions -- and since all three platforms are utterly different in nature, it can be pretty tough to decide between them. Her...more

Review: Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal

While Sonic Boom on the Wii U has its issues, there are also some redeeming qualities. Co-op is enjoyable, the platforming is pretty fun, and the 2D sections aren't bad. With a few more months in the oven and more polish, it could have ultimately been a decent Sonic title. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for the 3DS version of Sonic Boom. There's almost nothing redeeming about it.more
