Hol­low Knight

Hyper - - FEATURE -

Hol­low Knight is an­other fine ex­am­ple of Aussie devs do­ing a stel­lar job and cre­at­ing a di•cult 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.
