The Kickstarter campaign for tabletop game Shovel Knight: Dungeon Duels has been canceled. The game's creator, Panda Cult Games, says it plans to relaunch the campaign in August.

Panda Cult says the Kickstarter campaign for Shovel Knight: Dungeon Duels "can be better". The dev wants to introduce a new and improved campaign with a more cost-friendly pledge tier. There will also be more videos available on the campaign from various groups who will share thoughts and opinions on the game. Panda Cult feels the relaunch will give it more time to spread the word about the campaign and make sure it reaches a wider audience.

At the time of Shovel Knight: Dungeon Duels' original Kickstarter campaign launch, there was just one pledge tier. $70 would get you a copy of the game once it launched, plus a Shield Knight hero model and card. When the Kickstarter relaunches in August, there will be an additional tier at $35 which will get you a copy of the game with standees instead of models. Rather cutely, Panda Cult is calling this one Shovel Knight: Dungeon Duels 2D (the original is now Dungeon Duels 3D). It's Panda Cult's hope that this will entice more people to contribute to the campaign. We don't yet know if the new campaign will have different stretch goals or a different overall goal. Stay tuned for more info on this.

Shovel Knight: Dungeon Duels is an upcoming board game based on the 2014 platformer. It's a competitive tabletop experience for up to 4 players, each of whom will vie with the others to amass as much gold as possible. While you're battling your friends, you'll also need to keep your equipment up-to-date, dodge deadly hazards, and battle bosses with Boss A.I. card decks. Here's hoping the new pledge tier makes it easier for Panda Cult to make this happen.

Dark Souls changed my life, and I'm here to spread the good news. I like pretty much all sorts of games, but I judge everything by its proximity to our Lord and saviour, Dark Souls.
