A video game success story like no other, Shovel Knight has been digging its way into fans’ hearts since 2014, achieving over 1.5 million copies sold as of December 2016 – a groundbreaking feat by any measure. That’s why UDON is thrilled to announce the forthcoming release of Shovel Knight: Official Design Works, collecting all of the gorgeous art from the Shovel Knight video game in one comprehensive volume!
UDON has worked very closely with developer Yacht Club Games to ensure that Shovel Knight: Official Design Works is every bit the definitive Shovel Knight art book that fans deserve. Within its pages you’ll find character art, developer commentary, rough illustrations and concept art, background development images, comprehensive sprite sheets, full-page promotional illustrations, and more – including an exclusive interview with the game’s development team!
“After more than a year of work, it’s finally complete! We here at Yacht Club Games are proud and delighted to realize one of our dreams – a Shovel Knight art book produced by UDON! We genuinely hope you enjoy the never-before-seen concepts and anecdotes detailed within!” – Yacht Club Games
As if there wasn’t already enough to dig into, Shovel Knight: Official Design Works has also been “plagued” by a wealth of material from Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows, the game’s first major downloadable content expansion. With so much incredible content packed in, Shovel Knight: Official Design Works truly does deliver in spades!
