Puzzle-Adventure Spinoff Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon Revealed

Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon

Yacht Club Games announces Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon, an action-puzzler spinoff of its popular platformer, along with a new trailer for Cyber Shadow.

A unique action-puzzle-adventure mashup that looks a bit like Crypt of the Necrodancer mixed with Candy Crush, Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon was announced at last week’s Yacht Club Games Presents presentation.

Though published by Yacht Club, Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon has mostly been developed by a seperate team at VINE. “By working together with great devs on new Shovel Knight games, we get many different creative perspectives and cool new designs that push the boundaries of the Shovel Knight Universe!” says Sean Velasco, designer at Yacht Club Games. “It’s been thrilling to see Pocket Dungeon progress, and we can’t wait to see where Shovel Knight goes next.”


Follow your cryptic guide Puzzle Knight through a variety of constantly-shifting dungeons, in which every move you make becomes part of the puzzle. We don’t know when the game will be out or even what platforms it will be available on, but the trailer belows shows off some addictive-looking gameplay.

We’ve also got a new story trailer for Cyber Shadow, the sci-fi dystopian platformer headed to PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC this autumn. With retro action and aesthetics, slash through robotic hordes as you journey down the path to discover how the world became overrun by these synthetic lifeforms.
