Cyber Shadow's developer originally turned down Yacht Club's publishing deal

Try, try, try again

Yacht Club recently revealed that they're teaming with developer MekaSkull to releasing Cyber Shadow on Switch. MekaSkull has been working on this game for 5+ years, and had zero intentions of working with a publisher to trumpet the release. Obviously something changed along the way, but it wasn't easy.

In an interview with Dtoid, Yacht Club explains how they were extremely persistent in wooing MekaSkull. It took a lot of time and convincing, but eventually the two teamed up to the benefit of all.

"...(MekaSkull) had no intention of grabbing a publisher, but we just kept trying to coax him into joining our little family, and here he is. ...Bringing more notoriety to the game has been cool, but I feel like we're just letting it show for itself. It was already cool. That's why we went after it to begin with... and initially, he did say no, but we managed to convince him over time that it was a good idea... working together, we built a trust. You have to allow yourself to be vulnerable, just like Cyber Shadow... You only get three hit[point]s, at least for the demo."

So is this going to be another game that Shovel Knight gets a cameo?
