Default Shovel Knight

So, we've talked about this game a lot, and have a thread for the company, but not for the game. So I made a thread for the game.

They're starting the hype for the fan vote to choose the three extra playable characters, and put a page up which describes how they'd play. I want to say Plague Knight is definitely my favorite, but I really like Specter Knight, Propeller Knight, and Polar Knight as well. And playing as notMaleficent would be tons of fun! So I don't know what to vote for. Though that indecision means there's a good chance I'll enjoy at least one of the winning characters.

Tinker Knight, Specter Knight, and Mole Knight are my picks.

Yeah, King Knight, Propeller Knight, and Treasure Knight for me. I also think the Black Knight sounds fun.

I kind of thought this was supposed to be out this month.

I've never been so disappointed with my own imagination.

That wasn't really your imagination, the delivery dates on the KS page say Sept 2013.

High five!

Black Knight is fine as an enemy, but as a playable character he'd just be, like, Shovel Knight, but MOAR. I suppose King Knight could be cool if all his fighting is done by minions, but his gameplay description is super vague.

I'm kinda more interested in the characters for their stories, because everyone is going to be playable in the battle mode anyway.

The polls are open! Go go go!

I voted:
1. The Enchantress
2. Plague Knight
3. Propeller Knight
4. Specter Knight
5. Polar Knight
6. Treasure Knight
7. Mole Knight
8. Tinker Knight
9. King Knight
10. The Black Knight

King and Black are the only two I'm 'meh' on. The rest all would be fun! I was really back and forth on my first and second votes; Plague Knight is still my favorite design but The Enchantress sounds more fun to play, and also she is basically Maleficent.

I put King Knight, The Black Knight, and Polar Knight pretty low. I'll be happy if I can play as Propeller Knight and the Enchantress.

I agree. I had King, Propeller, Plague, and the Enchantress all up high. Black Knight last.

I haven't voted yet, but I'm just popping in to say that the character designs in this game are aces. They put a so many other wannabe retro games to shame.

I really like Mole Knight, so he was my top choice. Not really interested in King Knight or Black Knight.

I just bought in with Paypal. This looks pretty awesome! Too bad I didn't get to vote for the characters in the poll.

There's a trailer that might be new.

It's ground-breaking.

The winners are Specter Knight, Plague Knight, and King Knight. Enchantress was a weird case, in that she received the most first place votes, but also the most last place votes, so she was simultaneously the most loved and hated of the choices. I'm sad that she didn't make it, but I love both Plague and Specter, so yay for them!

The voting results were almost the complete inverse of how I voted. Ah, well!

King Knight was my top choice, and Specter/Plague were either my next two or at least high on my list. I don't remember exactly, but I'm happy with this.

I'm kind of baffled by how low Treasure Knight is. He's wearing an old timey diving suit and uses a grappling hook! Alas.

I'm pretty happy that King Knight made it, at least.

I never got around to voting, but I guess the winners are good enough for me.

Anyone else a little worried about the number of shots showing off the gimmick that you can't see what you're doing?

That looks fantastic. My only minor gripe is I don't like the skeleton sprites, they look off and out of place.
