Shovel Knight: Shovel of Hope* – Enjoy the original standalone adventure that launched Shovel Knight on his quest to discover the true meaning of shovel justice. Shovel Knight: Shovel of Hope is a sweeping, classic action-adventure game with awesome gameplay, memorable characters and an 8-bit retro aesthetic. It’s a hot mashup of new and old! You play as the eponymous Shovel Knight, a small warrior with a huge quest. Shovel Knight has come to this land with two goals: to defeat the evil Enchantress and quest for his lost beloved. He wields a Shovel Blade: a multipurpose weapon whose techniques have now been lost to the ages. Always honest and helpful, Shovel Knight is a shining example of the code of Shovelry: Slash Mercilessly and Dig Tirelessly!
Later Daters – You’re the newest resident at Ye OLDE retirement community, where you’ll meet a cast of charming seniors who are all eager to greet you. It’s a lot like summer camp, but with orthopedic shoes, bridge clubs and way more gelatin. Customize your look, name, history and gender as you date and flirt with eight fetching residents of Ye OLDE. Adventure, passion and transformation are all on the table in this role-playing simulation. Who knows: maybe these will turn out to be the best years of your life!
