Being a Director for a Day was one of the reward tiers in Shovel Knight's Kickstarter campaign. By donating $1000, backers could become Directors for a Day and work with Yacht Club Games to design a major character, boss, midboss, or scenario. Ten positions were available, but only five were filled. Each of them worked with the game developer to flesh out an idea and add it to the game. Four of the five Directors for a Day added the characters that make up the Wandering Travelers.

    • In the credits of Plague of Shadows, Shovel Knight is depicting beating the Liquid Samurai and preparing to fight the travelers himself.
