Yacht Club is working on a mystery 3D project


Hopefully it’s a Magic Eye book

Yacht Club Games is evidently digging a bit deeper than the 2D side-scrolling platformers it’s best known for. Actually, it’s seemingly adding a whole ‘nother dimension!

In a job listing on Gamasutra (as spotted by GameSpot), Yacht Club is working on a “new 3D project” and its own custom engine. The 3D team will complement the existing 2D team, but there were no hints as to what sort of game this is.

Yacht Club is keeping busy, as it’s developing and/or publishing several 2D titles like Shovel Knight Dig, Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon, and Cyber Shadow. It has also been known that Yacht Club has some unannounced projects it’s working on, and this 3D endeavor just happens to be one of them. Who knows how many else are in production?

My best guess? Shovel Knight Showdownwas such a smash success that Yacht Club is making a 3D Shovel Knightfighter in the vein of Soulcalibur. You’d play it.
