A portion of an AppTrigger interview with Nick Wozniak of Yacht Club Games…
AT: I’ve seen a little bit of Yacht Club talking about working on more Shovel Knight, or more things besides Shovel Knight after all this is done. What would your personal preference be? If you could work on anything, what would it be?
NW: Anything? I think one of the things we want to work on in the far future is definitely like a Shovel Knight 64, a 3D platformer. We would all love that. We all love Mario 64 to pieces and would just love to be able to jump into that.
AT: He seems so right in the world of Yooka-Laylee.
NW: Yeah! I love seeing his model there and I would love to be able to do something like that. Maybe not as a collect-a-thon, more the way that Mario 64 handles a stage, where you explore that one stage and really get to know all of its ins and outs. It’s really fun and exciting, so I think that’s where we’d go with it. But we haven’t really worked on that at all. Our team is kind of starting new things right now, but it’s very, very early and nothing to really talk about. I think we eventually want to have more than just Shovel Knight. We don’t want to just be “the Shovel Knight company.” We’re developing something new right now that hopefully will be as big or bigger than Shovel Knight.
AT: Well, you have Shovel Knight in Dark Souls and Shovel Knight in Yooka-Laylee, is there any other place you’d want to see Shovel Knight?
NW: I’d love to see Shovel Knight all over the place. For Smash Bros would be amazing. For Overwatch, we’ve been thinking a lot about Overwatch. Recently somebody drew a centaur-Shovel Knight. He was holding a shovel and next to it on the whiteboard I drew Orisa from Overwatch and they were having a conversation, being weird about centaurs. And we posted it on Twitter and then the offiical Overwatch Twitter said hello back, and it was really cool! There’s nothing there as far as a cameo, but I’d love to see Shovel Knight in those things. A big Reinhardt skin would be awesome. We love that game a lot and we play it all the time.
