Discover the art of Shovel Knight in a design works book

The classic action adventure game series Shovel Knight stands out in the video games’ landscape for an unforgiving gameplay but most of all for 8-bit retro aesthetics that throw us back to the early days of gaming. And on August 29th, Yacht Club Games and Udon Entertainment will get us even further with the release on a book called “Shovel Knight: Official Design Works”.

Just like the title says, this book will be a recollection of original artwork and production notes used during the production of the Shovel Knight games. You will find the official description of the product in the following quote, with details on its content. There’s also a first look at the artwork featured in it with the original cover, shown below. It will go on sale for $39.99/£35.99, but pre-orders are for the moment welcomed with a $7 discount if you buy it on Amazon US.

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.
