Another @Pixel_Dailies competition is running today! To enter you have to invent and pixel a knight of the form _____Knight (e.g., LaserKnight, MirrorKnight, SolarKnight), and post it to Twitter, including the tag #______Knight and @Pixel_Dailies in the tweet. Two copies of Shovel Knight by Yacht Club Games are up for grabs -- one going to the best pixel art and one going to a random entry. 

The competition ends tomorrow at 11pm UTC (Thursday). Good luck!
