Shovel Knight developer Yacht Club Games has announced via their website that their indie title has sold over 180,000 copies of their Action-Platforming game. Their blog has an extremely in depth breakdown and analysis of Shovel Knights sales from Kickstarter donations to current day.

Shovel Knight has now released on PC, Mac, Linux, Wii U and 3DS. After the first week over 75,000 copies had been sold with 38% for PC, 35% for 3DS and 27% for the Wii U. This earned Shovel Knight a number 1 position on the 3DS eShop, 2nd on the Wii U eShop and within the top 10 for Steam. Now after a month with 180,000 sales the percentages are still pretty similar with 37% sold over Steam, 33% being sold on 3DS, 27% for the Wii U as well as 2% over Humble Store and 1% on GoG.

Yacht Club Games finishes by thanking all of the kickstarter backers and teasing that on Thursday even more information will be released breaking down the steam sales by region, how many people have beaten the game, how much gold has been collected and much more.

I have been playing all kinds of games for as long as I can remember with a particular interest in action adventure and platforming titles. While I am primarily an Xbox gamer I also spend a fair bit of time on the PS4 and on my PC in VR.
