‘Shovel Knight Dig’ Turns an Excellent Platformer into an Awesome Roguelike

Shovel Knight is one of the great modern platformers. One of its many excellent expansions even turned Shovel Knight—a game released in 2014 that was getting massive updates until 2019—into a surprisingly good card game, too. And would you believe it’s now been spun off into excellent roguelike, as well? Shovel Knight Dig is not an expansion to Shovel Knight, but instead a brand-new game akin to last year’s puzzle-centric Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon.
