Yacht Club Games Says Shovel Knight Came To Nintendo Because Of Dan Adelman

Yacht Club Games has revealed that its debut title, the critically-acclaimed Shovel Knight, wouldn’t be on Wii U or Nintendo 3DS without the help of Dan Adelman. Adelman, who served as the head of Nintendo of America’s indie program for nearly a decade, was apparently the main motive for bringing the retro-inspired platformer to the Nintendo eShop. Available now in North America, Shovel Knight arrives in Europe and Australia next month.

“Without Dan, Shovel Knight wouldn’t be on the Wii U/3DS and maybe it wouldn’t exist at all,” Yacht Club Games said. “We essentially sent Dan a blind email before our Kickstarter asking if we could be approved as developers on the platforms. He put his full trust in us and the game – without that, who knows if the Kickstarter would have even funded!

“He is unbelievably supportive of indies, and it’s amazing to see a person so committed to aiding smaller teams so that they can focus on creating interesting and unique experiences. Also, he’s a spicy curry champ. Champion of indies and spicy curry…what more could you want?”
