COMPETITION – Shovel Knight


So, one competition over. On to the next one, which this time is for Shovel Knight.

We have two brand-new copies of the game (one for the Nintendo 3DS and one for the Playstation 4), and since there’s two prizes, this time there will be two winners.

Developed by Yacht Club Games and published by Avanquest in the UK, Shovel Knight has been heavily inspired by a number of much older titles including Castlevania III, Mega Man, Duck Tales and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. This award-winning game has been extremely well-received by critics and journalists who have praised its challenge and its ability to deliver the story through the gameplay.

In order to win the PS4 or 3DS copy of Shovel Knight all you have to do is like and share the Facebook posts for this competition (leave us a comment too if you like), retweet one of the relevant tweets, +1 the relevant post on Google +, or simply send an email containing your name and address to (oh, and please don’t forget to title your message “Me and My Shovel”).

This competition is open to everyone over the age of 15 in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland except for members of The Geek Show. The competition will close at midnight (GMT), on Tusday the 1st of December 2015. The winner will be chosen at random and announced on the social media the following day.

Special thanks go to Avanquest for letting us run this competition

Co-founder of The Geek Show Podcast Network. Chief Editor and Executive Producer of, and tangentially overburdened host/co-presenter of several shows on the network. When I'm not engaged in production, journalistic shenanigans or the quagmire that is media criticism I watch movies, interesting TV shows and anime, I also enjoy the arts (you know, classical music and stuff), write many, many things, play and collect a lot of video games, read lots of manga, comics and books, and generally enjoy wallowing in the mass of entertainment media like a hippo in mud. I can also cook.
