One of the games of IndieCade 2013 that really stood out to me was Shovel Knight by Yacht Club Games. It’s a side scrolling action platformer that looks a lot like a Mega Man game, but plays a lot like Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. I spent some hands-on time with the demo, and I can honestly say it’s as fun as it looks! Give the trailer a watch and get ready for some retro goodness!
On consoles, Shovel Knight is exclusive to Nintendo and is coming to Wii U and 3DS. It will also be available on PC, Mac and Linux via Steam.
