Cyberknight is the cyberpunk Hollow Knight mod I didn’t know I needed

What if Hollow Knight... but cyberpunk? This was never a question that really crossed my mind. The futuristic neon stuff is everywhere at the moment, largely because of CD Projekt Red's impending RPG Cyberpunk 2077, but the last place I expected to find hints of the techy genre was in a gothic metroidvania about a long lost kingdom of bugs. Inspired by all the cyberpunk…

Hollow Knight: Silksong reveals a fourth and final new character

Over the past few weeks, the developers of the excellent metroidvania Hollow Knight have been revealing new characters that players will meet in the upcoming sequel, Silksong. To uncover these NPCs, fans have had to answer riddles, and so far, we've seen the rather creepy Huntress and the sneak-thief Grindle. Last night, however, a new challenger approached. Meet Seth, an ancient guardian of a place…

Bug-based metroidvania game Hollow Knight has had a sequel in the works for a while but details have been light on the ground for the past year. Now, Hollow Knight: Silksong may finally be emerging from its cocoon. Last week, players solved a few riddles to unveil a new NPC. Now they've done it again and Team Cherry have rewarded them with yet another new friend.

Hollow Knight: Silksong has revealed a new NPC and I’m bursting with excitement all over again

A small hint, a tiny crumb, a mere morsel of news is all I've wanted of Hollow Knight: Silksong since it was announced last year, and today I got it. Thanks to some clever fans over on the official Hollow Knight Discord server, Team Cherry have revealed an NPC that we'll meet in the sequel to the brilliant bug-filled metroidvania. All they had to do…

Feature: In honour of His Souliness

The 10 best games like Dark Souls

Sorry, definition nerds. “Soulslike” is a word now. Disgusting, I know, but this is how genres are made. Along comes a giant like Dark Souls that everybody won’t stop bleating about and soon it has copycats. Before you know it, a swarm of like-minded games with sparse checkpoints and lethal attacks are scuttling around, leaving slime trails and biting your ankles for surprisingly massive damage.…

E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

Hollow Knight and Hitman headline the Humble Monthly

The Humble Monthly continues to impress - today's $12 subscription bundle deal is massive souls-inspired Metroidvania Hollow Knight, murder-sim Hitman and zombie survival sandbox 7 Days To Die. While the third of those doesn't quite fit, the first two are among the best in their genres, though Hitman is arguably a genre unto itself.That's not even mentioning the other handful of games to be unveiled…

Feature: Beyond the Infinite Worms

The Joy Of Cornifer in Hollow Knight

The labyrinth beneath Dirtmouth is dark and crawling with bugs. There’s a mantis tribunal, a stag beetle with a saddle, and an unending army of worms. Beyond the Infinite Worms is a ruined city lost to dirt and water, and a creature who refers to itself only as the Nailmaster, who apparently bears no relation to that scumbag Chad from college. In Hollow Knight, wandering…

Hollow Knight’s final free expansion launches as the game goes on sale

Good thing I've a long weekend ahead of me, because it's going to take time to explore Hollow Knight's crumbling Metroidvania world of brooding goth insects - now more than ever, as its third and final free expansion is out now. Formerly Gods And Glory, developers Team Cherry found the name was taken, so renamed this bundle of new boss battles and quests Godmaster. Fitting,…

Feature: How to build a world where anything can happen

Hollow Knight and the art of consistency

"One of my favourite things in the whole game is that when you slash your little weapon against the cave wall you actually get an impact, with a little recoil and rocks come out,” says Ari Gibson, animator, artist and co-creator of Hollow Knight. “It’s such a small thing, but it changes you from being just a few animations to being a present actor inside…

The last of its Kickstarter stretch-goal expansions - Gods & Glory - is rolling out next month, and is set to conclude the story of The Knight. It'll be launching on August 23rd. Below, a very boss-heavy announcement trailer.

Hollow Knight: Lifeblood expansion is free and out now

Hollow Knight incites a bit of debate around the site. As John brought up in his review last year: what do you do with a game that is genuinely good but rather unoriginal? It's a Metroidvania game that a lot of us picked up because it was simply the most recent Metroidvania game, and that's not the best excuse for buying a game. In the…

Hollow Knight’s Lifeblood update will draw more of yours

While the promised free Gods & Glory expansion for Team Cherry's excellent Hollow Night is still in the works, porting the game to the Nintendo Switch has led to the creation of some tangential new content & features that we all get to enjoy in the interim.While not completely finalized, they've rolled this little bundle of boss fights and gubbins out as a beta on Steam, and call…

Gods & Glory, Hollow Knight’s final free DLC announced

Despite friends repeatedly nudging me into playing it, I've still only played the first couple hours of Team Cherry's excellent Dark Souls-ish metroidvania Hollow Knight. Normally a point to lament, but I'm not feeling so bad about it today.Riding a wave of inertia from a very successful launch, the third and final free expansion for the game, Gods & Glory, is on its way. With it,…

Hollow Knight’s second free expansion out next week

One of my greatest gaming regrets of this year is getting about halfway through Team Cherry's excellent metroidvania Hollow Knight, then getting sidetracked by a pile of work. In order to get properly back up to speed, I reckon that I'll have to start fresh, although with the rate at which they're pumping out free DLC I might just wait a little while longer.We have…

Hollow Knight will welcome (???) the Grimm Troupe as free DLC this Hallowe’en

Hot on the heels of the Hidden Dreams free DLC, the Hollow Knight [official site] devs have announced the second in their trio of free-of-charge content packs for the gorgeous, insecty Metroidvania. This one is called The Grimm Troupe and will hit PC at Hallowe'entide, so the end of October. There's a super cute movie poster-type promo image which I'll pop after the jump along…

Hidden Dreams free DLC now in Hollow Knight

When I first played Sunless Sea I didn't click with it, then the Zubmariner expansion/DLC came out and I was hooked for weeks. When I first played the arthropoddy Metroidvania-with-hints-of-Dark-Souls, Hollow Knight [official site], I didn't manage to click with it, but chatting with friends who adore it once it gets going and seeing that its first free DLC - Hidden Dreams - is out,…

Feature: Rings a little

Hollow Knight feels too familiar, despite being a solid metroidvania

Hollow Knight [official site] presents a peculiar issue. What do you do with a game that is genuinely good, but rather unoriginal? A game that is so, so similar to others that have come recently before it, but is still a beautifully drawn, solidly built metroidvania? Do you say, "Get this one, because it's the most recent?" That's not a coherent argument. Unfortunately for Hollow…

Bzzztroidvania! Hollow Knight released

You might remember that Pip took a good look in 2015 at the art of Hollow Knight [official site], admiring its cute yet sinister hand-drawn world of insects. Pretty to look at, how does it play? You can see for yourself, as Hollow Knight finally came out this week. I've not had a crack yet myself but a fair few folks seem jolly pleased with…
