Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon soundtrack uncovered on Bandcamp

The 42-track soundtrack for Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon has been published through the Bandcamp page of series composer Virt (Jake Kaufman), as well as through Steam.

The results of a three-year collaboration with independent developer Vine, Yacht Club Games' puzzle adventure mashup introduces a roguelike dungeon-crawling twist to classic falling block puzzles. Pocket Dungeon offers various play modes: Adventure Mode, 2-player competitive Versus Mode, as well as a Daily Challenge. Ten playable characters are present, familiar to players of Shovel Knight and the Treasure Trove expansions.

Pocket Dungeon's briskly paced gameplay, which challenges the player to alternate between attacking groups of enemies and replenishing health with potions, draws inspiration from similarly sprite-based titles of the 8-bit era, namely Wario’s Woods and Yoshi’s Cookie. The music score expands upon the composer's themes from the sidescrolling platformer, revisiting familiar melodies for the map screen, Lich Yard, Primedoor Keep, Clockwork Tower, and other assorted returning locations.

Pocket Dungeon launched on December 13th, available for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch consoles, along with Windows and Mac through Steam.
