Shovel Knight

Shovel Knight was one of the breakout Nindie hits of the last generation, offering a near-perfect retro adventure that keeps on giving to this very day. Part of the game's charm comes from the 8-bit art style that simultaneously calls back to days gone by, while also bringing something new to the table by doing things that could only be done in a modern setting. Suffice to say, Shovel Knight is a pretty game to look at, and for those of you that particularly appreciate the visuals, Yacht Club Games is putting together a special treat.

An Amazon listing recently popped up for Shovel Knight: Official Design Works, which will be a 184-page art book centered around Shovel Knight which is pegged for a 29th August release. Here's the summary of what's included:

Shovel Knight: Official Design Works collects the fun and original artwork behind this landmark title. Inside you'll find key art, character concepts, enemy designs, sprite sheets, unused ideas, and an all-new Shovel Knight tribute art gallery! This epic tome is also packed with creator commentary, as well as exclusive interview with the Yacht Club Games team.
