The lights are on
One of the successful Kickstarter game Shovel Knights' stretch goals was the addition of playable boss characters. Developer Yacht Club Games is getting ready to open the polls to let players vote on which bosses should be playable.
There are 10 Mega Man-style bosses to choose from which you can see in the gallery below. Only three of the bosses will make the cut, but they will be playable, and get their own stories. Backers will be able to start voting on October 4. For the next two weeks, Yacht Club is asking everyone to make their case for who they would like to see playable with art, writing, poetry, animation – whatever you want.

Spectre, Enchantress and Plague, because they look the least like knights. And i just like their designs.
The Black Knight looks awesome; I can not wait to play this retro modern style epic game. ^_^
King Knight, Plague Knight and The Enchantress.
I hope this game does well enough to get a "16-bit" sequel. I can't wait to get into it. It looks phenomenal!
