Hollow Knight is another fine example of Aussie devs doing a stellar job and creating a dicult but accessible adventure that branches in multiple paths and hides secrets aplenty. It is made with replayability in mind and has a silent, nameless protaginist who is an insect-like creature who wields a nail as his sword. The story is purposefully vague and the narrative is explained through your surroundings, character interactions, and dierent areas you can explore. It can be o putting for new players due to the lack of tutorial or direction in the early game; stick with it though and it will draw you in to its world and its lore.
Like the other knight in this list there is a feature borrowed from the Souls games where you can navigate to your last place of death and if you can defeat your ghost in that area you can reclaim the items you perished with. Featuring multiple endings, a large, spooky world to explore and many dierent paths to glory, this local gem is worth your time.
