Release: Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows

Classic Games

Totally FREE and massive, like a really big, explosive bird creature.

Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows, a free and huge expansion to the award-winning NES-style platformer, is available now, DRM-free on

Shovel Knight promised and delivered: a core platformer, an NES-style palette, pixel-perfect gameplay, a hero out to save the world and get the girl – but most importantly – a true understanding of what made the classics tick. Following critical acclaim and a hugely successful launch, another promise was made: a significant expansion, free for everyone, excitement. And now it’s here.

Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows expands on nearly every aspect of the original release: there’s a new adventure to go on (maybe some romance too), new gameplay mechanics, an alchemy crafting system, new objectives, new bosses, and even new paths, nooks, and crannies in the original levels. It truly is the game anew. Among it all is a new playable character: an old friend, the Plague Knight, offering a completely different style of play. He’s an explosive trickster, whose mobility, weapons, and move-set offer new challenges whether you’re playing through the classic levels or the new campaign. For a better idea of what’s new (and the fascinating design process), check out the dev’s blog on the Plague Knight’s Mobility Design!
