Aight so important Shovel Knight related question
Spoilers for Specter of Torment
So I was thinking about the size of Specter Knight. We find out that he’s Donovan in like, the first level, and there’s even a code that lets you play as Donovan before he became Specter Knight. So using that, I was able to get a side by side comparison of the two:
Obviously, they’re the same size. Makes sense because they’re the same person and because if they were different sizes it would fuck up how you play if you were playing as Donovan.
Now the part that confuses me is that when he sacrifices his freedom and mortality in order to save Reize he become really fuckin tall. Like I understand that when he does so, the Enchantress seems to give him more power, which is why he can fly and shit, but how exactly does the magic work in making him taller? Do his limbs get stretched out? Is he really just a ghost now? If so why does he bother with the armor? Why not just the cloak?
This is the bullshit that keeps me up til like 4 am…
