Watch oprainfall co-owner Jonathan Higgins try his hand at Shovel Knight at PAX East 2014. As he plays (and occasionally dies), developer Yacht Club GamesNick “Woz” Wozniak comments on the game’s death and other mechanics and how the game will appeal to both novice and seasoned gamers.

Also watch our interview with Woz, where we talk even more about Shovel Knight.

    You call that platforming, Higgins? In my day, we didn’t get no fancy recovery points! 😉 In all seriousness though, the game looks absolutely brilliant! Cannot wait for the final version to come out 😀

    • My skills are a fraction of what they normally are when I’m…in front of the developers. I get shy! 🙁 🙁 Haha
