I got a digital copy and then later got a physical copy from my local game store. I also got it on console dunno what it is about this game but i think the 50% off at the current price will be the best way to get it unless you can wait a few more years.

roughly $10 should be a no brainer unless you have zero interest, because you're drowning in games or wait for every game to get laid to rest in a bundle..

The game is great and yea for people that are really into action platformers , even the $39.99 pricetag is 'worth it'. But it's a hefty price to look at for people who are unsure and let's be real, there's good competition for half the price. So somone who might think he doesn't want to play Shovel Knight for hours on end might pick up two different titles of the same genre for the price on steam.

But hey, current price is a must buy if the game sat on your wishlist for ages.

Just a warning for those who are thinking of buying it despite (or because of) the ever increasing price...It is not as good as people make it out to be:

  • Instant death pits and spikes everywhere (These were bad back on NES, and they're still bad now).
  • Effects that make it impossible to see where you're going (while over instant death pits).
  • Knockback when striking enemies (so attacking enemies will probably get you thrown into an instant death pit half the time).
  • No ability to swing shovel upwards (big problem for enemies that come from above).

The game is filled with bad design decisions. But I've only played as the Shovel Knight character, I haven't tried the other characters yet so maybe it's a better game when played as one of them...

And after they go full price most likely they put it in a bundle soon after. :x

I highly disagree. As I get older less and less games can keep me stuck to the monitor for playing 5+ hour sessions. This game did it easily, great level design and soundtrack, difficulty just right. If anyone is remotely interested in this type of game I suggest to pick it at this price, don't expect to go under 10 in a foreseeable future.
