Buckle in Gang! This is a big one.
Over 100,000 sold!
Yowza! Earlier this month HK crossed the 100,000 line, and it keeps on going! That’s just a crazy number of people playing Hollow Knight, and we’re constantly blown away by the game’s continued support. So many little Hollow Knights out there in the world. So many people to delight in Hallownest’s mysteries, and rage at its challenges!
Hollow Knight has legit, serious, fans! With full fan translations (All major asian languages!), endless fan art (see below!), an insanely skilled speed-running community, and giant wikis popping up around our strange-insect-game.
A surprise visit from Hornet to the Team Cherry office! Another incredible figurine from the amazing

Over 65,000 copies sold!
What an amazing feat for our tiny/huge game. In under a month Hollow Knight has managed to sell over 65,000 copies across Steam, GoG and Humble Bundle. That’s just an enormous number, and we’re thrilled to know so many people are diving into Hollow Knight’s world. Coupled with it’s sales, Hollow Knight’s seen a fantastic reception by media, by players on Steam, and by backers!
Thank you for all the emails, and the wonderful compliments on the game, the soundtrack, and for your patience as we work through everything.
Now that we are here, get ready! More Hollow Knight content is being designed, animated, and prepped for you. If you thought you’d already faced Hallownest’s toughest foes, you’re in for a shock!

It’s here gang! Hollow Knight is live on Steam for Windows. It’s been a long, intense journey reaching this point. 2 years of non-stop development, and right down to the wire, with William putting in last minute fixes the day before the game went out!
Our hugest thanks to all of you for allowing us to make the game we dreamt of making. What a thrilling (and exhausting) ride!
We also don’t say this enough, but our sincerest thanks also go out the team at Kickstarter! Without your support, and your platform, this game would never have come to be.
Our last big ask: Tell the world about Hollow Knight! Write, Tweet, Stream or sms a friend. The more people know about it, and the bigger it becomes, the more crazy content we can add to this weird and wonderful buggy world.
And don’t mistake! Team Cherry’s work is far from over. Even today, we’re back at it. Dave’s working at getting the Mac build ready, and William is prepping a patch with tweaks and optimisations. Once lots of people, with all manner of different computer setups, start playing the game, you learn a lot! Quickly. We’ll be addressing anything that pops up as we go.
If you’ve filled out the Kickstarter Survey, or pledged at the $10 tier, and haven’t yet received Steam Codes or your digital extras, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get things sorted for you!
That’s all for now! Very tired, but very excited!
Lots more from Team Cherry soon.

Get ready everyone! Team Cherry’s huge New Year 2017 Update is landing now. So much news for you all. Settle in and let’s get to it!
First up, we’re gonna deal with the big one. There’s just one major question we keep being asked ‘Is Hollow Knight coming to the Nintendo Switch?’
We’ve had a long conversation with Nintendo and given their recent reveals, we can now announce: Hollow Knight is making the switch to Nintendo’s new portable/home/hybrid platform!

It’s been a little while since our last update, but that’s because we’ve been busy not only with getting the game ready for our testers, but also with setting up Hollow Knight’s Steam page!
