Shovel Knight (2014)

Is an indie game released on multiple platforms, it’s made in an 8-bit retro aesthetic, a style similar to the Snes (Super Nintendo Entertainment System) .
The environments are dark and brooding, the inspiration from this game is taken from the style of the assets, particularly the brick walls and the lines of shading used to emphasise the darkness. This style suits well with out game Dungeons of the Dark.
