Shovel Knight's trowels and tribulations also playable on Mac and Linux

Shovel Knight defeats Mac, Linux stretch goals
Shovel Knight has dug a tunnel to the Mac and Linux platforms, lined with Kickstarter money, in a tortured metaphor for which we apologize. The point is that Shovel Knight's fundraiser has passed the stretch goal required to ensure ports to those two platforms.

Continued Kickstarter contributions have also surpassed the stretch goal for a playable Boss Knight. "We are really excited about this one because it opens up so many gameplay possibilities," developer Yacht Club Games said. "With this NEW character, you can expect different mobility, play style, and a slightly altered story." The character will be chosen from the "Order of No Quarter" group by a fan vote.
