Studio doubles initial goal of 150,000 sales

Shovel Knight sells 300,000 copies

Yacht Club Games’ retro action adventure Shovel Knight has sold more than 300,000 copies.

The developer had originally hoped to sell as many as 150,000 copies of the title after its release in June, and then went on to sell 180,000 in the first month. Game sales have now doubled that initial target.

Yacht Club took Shovel Knight to crowdfunding site Kickstarter in March last year asking for $75,000 to help make the game. The campaign eventually raised $311,502 from 14,749 backers.

Shovel Knight is available on PC, Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.
