Starting to make its way through stretch goals

Not only is the Shovel Knight Kickstarter fully funded, but it's also attacking its stretch goals at the moment.

Now you can get more copies of the game (Wii U, PC, 3DS) per $15 pledge without having to create multiple accounts. Just follow the instructions here to make double-sure the process is correct, and you're good to go.

Also, the Enchantress enemy has been revealed, as well as an in-game music player stretch goal. At the time of this writing, the campaign is working towards the $90,000 goal of "Achievements for All!" and the $100,000 goal of a New Game+.

There's quite a ways to go until the final $200,000 stretch goal of a four player battle mode, so I'm interested in seeing how it turns out. Honestly, I'm just glad this game is funded, as I could always use more retro in my life.
