Get a Taste of Hollow Knight with First Gameplay Video

Hollow Knight is a Metroidvania-styled 2D game currently seeking funding on Kickstarter. Recently, the campaign hit its halfway point but there’s still still more funding required. One thing that potential backers were hungry to see was some actual gameplay. Today Team Cherry have provided a first gameplay demonstration.

The video shows an optional area so the developers aren’t spoiling anything. First they meander through a bit of tough platforming before starting up an optional boss encounter. Hollow Knight appears to already be responsive, challenging, and have gorgeously-animated action.

Take a look at the new gameplay video yourself and see if that entices you to pitch in toward Hollow Knight’s $35,000 AUD goal.
