Yacht Club Games announced today a brand new Shovel Knight game, Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon. Developed by VINE and Yacht Club Games, it's a brand new action-packed puzzle-adventure mash-up. 

Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon is the third Yacht Club title made in collaboration with an external game development team, after Cyber Shadow and Shovel Knight Dig. "Working with Yacht Club has helped us to leverage resources we wouldn’t have access to otherwise, and helped get the game in front of more people. It’s fun to add to the mythos of Shovel Knight, too," said Russell Rafferty, developer behind VINE and creator of Pocket Dungeon.

"By working together with great devs on new Shovel Knight games, we get many different creative perspectives and cool new designs that push the boundaries of the Shovel Knight Universe! It’s been thrilling to see Pocket Dungeon progress, and we can’t wait to see where Shovel Knight goes next," said Sean Velasco, designer at Yacht Club Games.

Shovel Knight is a great game. But I'm not really interested in spinning off because I like the Shovel Knight platformer part.
