Blokkan lands on Kickstarter! The Yetee going Retro!
Short update today gang!
Occasionally we spotlight other Kickstarter projects, but today we’re spotlighting a very special one. So special in fact, we’re jumping straight in up front!
Blokkan – The Graphic Novel
Do you like Robots? Do you like foxes? Do you like talking cars? Then this enormous, action-packed graphic novel is for you!
Blokkan is the work of a single talented artist, Rohan Fraser, and it’s just now launched on Kickstarter. Rohan has an important relationship with Team Cherry: He worked with us in our first ever game jams.
While we’ve been busy building Hollow Knight, Rohan’s been hard at work developing his colourful world of robots, humans and more robots! Team Cherry’s devising some top secret plans to work more with Rohan in the future, but for now: Go back his book!
The Yetee x Hollow Knight
Since our last update, the talented team at The Yetee have launched their incredible range of Hollow Knight Official Tees and Merch. These guys and girls went overboard with Hollow Knight awesomeness.
Though you absolutely must browse the entire collection, we just have to highlight this retro HK shirt by the Yetee’s own Drew Wise. Drew’s making us yearn for the NES era Hollow Knight that should have been.
Micro Update Corner
Steam Summer Sale – Hollow Knight’s been taking part, and Team Cherry’s been thrilled to see a whole wave of new players jump into Hallownest. There’re still a few days left on the sale, so if you’ve any friends who might like exploring enormous, ruined, buggy worlds, please send them over to Steam!
GOG Galaxy – We may have mentioned this in the past, but things are all a blur at Cherry HQ! For Hollow Knight players on GOG: We’ll be implementing the full suite of GOG Galaxy features into Hollow Knight in the near future. Keep an eye out for them.
Playable Hornet – Alongside the 3 content packs, we’re laying the ground-work for Hornet. That’s a huge amount of work, because we’re really going all out on her addition, but we can say ‘It’s going well!’ If Team Cherry goes quiet on Hornet progress for now, just know we’re working hard to make her as fast, fun and lethal as she can be.
Content Pack 01: Hidden Dreams – We’re close on this gang. Internally, we’re almost ready to call the update done, then it’s all testing through to release in a few weeks time. We’ll do an exact date announcement as we get close.
Physical Switch – Team Cherry is often asked whether a physical version of Hollow Knight is coming for Nintendo Switch. In fact, the question keeps filling up our inboxes! While we’re not able to announce anything, we can say we’ve been looking into it making this happen, and things are looking promising!
Fan Art Micro Corner
We’re out of space and time in our Mini-Update to go all fan art crazy, but the pieces just keep pouring in. Today we have to share just one special sculpt by Rahul Parihar. This one really floored us. So many little details. We’re super impressed.
That’s it from TC! We’re rolling into the Hidden Dreams launch. Get your dream nail ready!
