Shovel Knight Kickstarter campaign raises over $300K

Yacht Club Games' Kickstarter project Shovel Knight raised a total of $311,502 in its crowdfunding campaign, which closed yesterday. The project reached its initial $75,000 goal in late March. It also achieved a number of stretch goals, including the guaranteed addition of a local four-player battle arena mode in which all of the game's bosses will be playable.

Shovel Knight is in development for PC, Linux, Mac, Wii U and 3DS, and is also trying to earn community votes on Steam's Greenlight service to make its way on Steam.
