I normally don’t write often for the video game section of BD because Adam is so goddamn good at it that entering his domain is pretty much me aspiring to be even 1/10th of the genius he is. That being said, I saw this and knew that I just HAD to post something about it.
A new trailer for the side scrolling platformer Hollow Knight has been released and I’m enchanted by its visuals and design! It looks like a more cartoony version of what Tim Burton meets Edward Gorey would result in. The muted colors that subtly change throughout the trailer below show a world that is charming and intriguing with a lot of mystery.
The synopsis for the game reads:
“Vanquish a horde of bizarre and terrifying foes on your journey through the dark ruins of an ancient kingdom. Use skill and cunning to survive the depths and return changed to the surface.”
Hollow Knight is coming to PC, Mac, Linux and the Wii U in 2016. You can actually pre-order the game (there are three different bundle options) via the official website.
Personally, I’m a big fan of beautiful and interesting side scrollers. Games like Limbo and Ori and the Blind Forest are some stellar examples of titles that can do unique things with a tried and true formula, one that stretches back to the beginning of video games. I grew up playing Metroid and Castlevania as well as the Mega Man games, so these kinds of titles always have a delightful nostalgia for me.
