Hollow Knight, the mysterious 2D title from Team Cherry, is shaping up to be one of the most promising indie titles on the horizon.
Blending stunning visuals, challenging combat and tight platforming elements, Hollow Knight has managed to garner a following since launching a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the game’s development. With ten days left to fund the $35,000 AUD campaign, the development team has released a new gameplay demo, showcasing the kind of white-knuckle boss fights that Hollow Knight will be host to.
In the gameplay demonstration, Team Cherry’s animator, Ari Gibson, and designer, William Pellen, tackle the optional Brooding Mawlek boss.
After a tough trek to the boss, Ari and William showcase the difficult fight. The Brooding Mawlek keeps in the tradition of insectoid-inspired creature designs featured in Hollow Knight and tasks players with staying mobile as they dodge the boss’ numerous attacks.
The Brooding Mawlek is just one of the dangerous creatures that players will encounter in the dark journey of Hollow Knight. For more information regarding this exciting game, head to the game’s official Kickstarter page.
