Yacht Club shares a behind-the-scenes look at how they created Shovel Knight: King of Card's Joustus mini-game

Deal with it

Shovel Knight: King of Cards packed in a ton of fun on the base game, and that includes the Joustus mini-game. This card battler was a completely different experience from anything else in Shovel Knight, which means it took a lot of time to prototype. The team worked on numerous iterations of the idea, and even tested things out with a rudimentary physical version. You can see how the entire design process went down in a Yacht Club dev blog here.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild Hinox glitch breaks the game

Yep, another glitch!

The curated fun crafted by Nintendo in Zelda: Breath of the Wild ended for most players long ago, but the joy continues through exploration, glitches, and more. Yet another bug has been discovered, and this one makes the game go completely wonky.

All you have to do to make the game freak out is push a Hinox into a waterfall. You can do so by using Magnesis on a treasure chest or other item, and keep bumping into a Hinox with it to push it along. Eventually the Hinox will glitch through the waterfall, and the whole game goes wild. Physics are complete off, the camera allows for completely free movement, and much more. Check out the video to see the glitch in action!

Thanks to CM30 for the heads up!
