Post-Beta Update: Vids, Guides & Concept Art!
It’s been a few weeks since the beta release and the responses and feedback we’ve gotten from everybody has been fantastic! People have been delving into all of the nooks and crannies of the beta, sending us through their thoughts and making some great gameplay videos.
Didn’t get a chance to play the beta? Not to fear! Here’s a whole bunch of gameplay videos for you to take a look at:
Beta Overview by Bitter Bits
An epic two-part journey through the beta from Nic of Bitter Bits. Check it out if you want to see pretty much everything the beta has to offer!
15 Minute Overview by Klaus gaming
A shorter video which takes you through the first fifteen minutes of the game with Klaus, who has some issues with stalactites along the way…
First impressions with Fork
Another great first impressions video through the first 12 minutes or so of the beta.
False Knight Guide
Having trouble defeating the fearsome False Knight, the boss who guards entry into the Shrine of Souls? Or would you just like to watch someone else do it for you? Check out this guide to fighting the False Knight from AssistingKnight!
It’s been a massive amount of work for us here at Team Cherry to get to this stage, but we couldn’t be happier with the response we’re getting from all of you. We really appreciate all of the feedback that’s been sent through to us so far. We’re also sending out a survey link to all of our Beta backers soon, so keep an eye on your email!
As for the rest of the project, we’re working our hardest, but we’ve still a bit left to go (creating vast ruined kingdoms is hard work!). Expect an update soon with details on our release schedule.
Team Cherry at PAX Australia
PAX Australia is right round the corner, and we’ll be attending as part of the PAX Rising Indie Showcase with the beta version of Hollow Knight available for attendees to play. We’re super grateful to have been selected to be in the Indie showcase along with some other great Aussie games. If you’re gonna be at PAX Australia, definitely swing by our booth in the showcase section and try out the game! Or if you’ve already played it, just come and chat to us! We’d love to meet any of our backers who are gonna be there this year.
Hollow Knight Concept Art on Rock Paper Shotgun
To close things off, here’s a link to a fantastic RPS article by Pip Warr about the concept art of Hollow Knight. You’ll see some pretty bizarre early concept work for the game, along with some great photos of Ari’s sketchbook, with all of its strange places and creatures. Definitely worth a look!
That’s all for now. As always, thanks for all of your support, and we’ll speak again soon!
