Lets Talk About Hollow Knight!

Spread the Word!

Hollow Knight just released on Steam yesterday and it’s a pretty good metroidvania bug game. 

Imagine that you’re playing Castlevania, but instead of fighting off Dracula’s army you’re fighting off a legion of bugs with a badass looking protagonist that is shrouded in mystery. That’s what Hollow Knight is and it’s pretty damn good. There’s not much to the story so far. I’m about 2 hours in the game and I still have no idea what’s going on. I think this was done on purpose though. Think of the story like Dark Souls.


There’s a little bit of Dark Souls in this game. When I died for the first time I expected to see a game over screen or something, but I didn’t. Instead I made my way back to where I died and fought my shadow. Once I killed my shadow I got all of my money back. The gameplay is great. If you’ve ever played Castlevania you’ll have a good idea of how this game plays. You jump from platform to platform while dodging traps, killing enemies, and collecting loot.

I’ve fought two bosses so far and it took a different strategy to kill both of them. They weren’t hard, but they were very entertaining to fight and the way they died was pretty funny too. Hollow Knight is like a throwback Castlevania game with a fantastic art style. If you’ve never heard of Hollow Knight I recommend checking it out. It’s not very expensive. I got my copy for $14.99 on Steam. It’s well worth the price already when you think about how much content in this game.

Have you tried out Hollow Knight? If you haven’t are you interested in buying it?

      The art style is amazing. I’m uploading some screen shots later today to show off more of the game.

    As a fan of “Metroidvanias,” I’ll have to check this out sometime. Ironically, the part about fighting your shadow made me think of the other knight of the Shovel variety, although I recognize that it’s really a Dark Souls thing.

      If you like Metroidvania games you’ll probably love this. It’s really good. The boss are very entertaining too. They range from being really funny to pretty hard.
