Sean Velasco, ‘Captain’ of Yacht Club Games, spoke with Nintendo UK about the creation of Shovel Knight.  The game is heavily inspired by 8-bit, NES-era games and Yacht Club tried sticking as close as possible to the 8-bit/NES style during development.

PNM interviewed Yacht Club Games about Shovel Knight in Issue 14 of our magazine.  Issue 14 of PNM can be ordered at MagCloud.  Subscriptions to PNM can be ordered at
