Hey day dreamers!
Today we wanted to provide a little more information about how the Daily mode works in Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon.
The Daily mode in Pocket Dungeon functions similar to daily runs you might have experienced in games like Spelunky. After entering a Daily, you begin a run of the game similar to the main adventure mode, but instead, everyone playing that day’s daily has the same settings, playable character, and random seed that generates what relics, items, and enemies appear. The goal being to ensure everyone has as similar an experience as possible. Then you can compete with your friends or the world to see who can end with the most gems in a single run. Purchases do not diminish your score, so spend to your heart’s content. You only get one chance to play every day, so make the most of it!
How to play
Daily can be entered from the title screen. Once you enter, you dive right in to the action:
If you’ve already played before, a timer will display showing you the next time the Daily run is available.
Once you die and complete your run, your score will be automatically posted to a daily leaderboard.
Don’t sweat it too much, you can always try again the next day!
This mode doesn’t affect the save data in your adventure. It treats the game like you’ve already unlocked everything, but skips cutscenes and story bits. It’s possible you’ll start a daily run with a character you haven’t unlocked yet or see a relic you’ve never discovered! So if you care about those kinds of spoilers, steer clear of the mode until you’ve wrapped up the adventure mode. Though, it can be a fun tease of what’s to come in adventure!
Daily is a fun way to interact with the game every day. We hope everyone gives it a shot!
