How in the hell did I miss this kickstarter?!? This has been such a f'ing amazing game! I'm near full game completion and just went and picked up one of the 4000 kickstarter CE's via ebay. I have had such a blast with this and can't wait for the new dlc!

I've been staying up till 2-4am the past few days playing. This is definitely one of those games that I just can't put down. If you haven't played yet, make it a priority!

This game absolutely makes it into my top 25!

I put 55 great hours into this on Switch (not doing everything still)

This one is probably in my top 3 favorite indie games along with Shovel Knight and Undertale

I tried it a few months back but couldn't get into it. I think I just wasn't in the right mood at the time, so I'm going to give it another shot later this year.

I played about halfway through on pc before my laptop crapped out. Hoping it will go on sale again soon on Switch. What I played was really good.

I loved Shovel Knight as well, been wanting to go back for a second round with the new content. Undertale ... haven't heard of that one. Must look into it!

I think I'm at like ~45 hours and all I have left is 3rd round at the Colosseum (so frustrating), Nightmare King Grimm (ugh) and the Godhome DLC (haven't started). Well, and the final boss!

Alright, bought it!

Yeah I saw the DLC news, perfect timing to be wrapping up. I don't know If I should finish the main story or not? Assuming I should. You can resume playing even after finishing right?

I didn't like how long it takes you to travel to some places and not knowing where the heck to go. Also, not enough stations to revive and having to backtrack when you die sucks. It had moments of briliance for me but got sick of it after halfway through the game

You must've been doing something wrong as there are mostly shortcuts to every boss in the game.

Yeah I know. I had lots of shortcuts but there was still plenty of backtracking.

I would have liked to have seen something near end game that allowed you to quick travel to benches. I enjoy back tracking, but there definitely is a lot and sometimes at far distances between stags.

Working on this now, last thing prior to god home. Definitely a patience battle. Tried 4x so far, finding that quick focus, deep focus are great to have. Difficult to decide if defense or offense is better.

It's worth the time. The boss fights get harder and harder, and the bullet hell style combat is so cool. Like everyone else has said, it's hard to say what to expect or look forward to without spoilers, but as a player where the "charm" was not enough for me, yes, please keep going. It's worth it.

Hollow Knight has been on my list of "games I want to play but just never seem to get around to" list since it launched. Another game I just ticked off that list is Dead Cells, which started in early access a couple years ago and came out in full last year. Been hearing nothing but good things since it came out but I only just started that game up a few days ago, and it's fantastic. Basically elements of Castlevania, Rogue Legacy, and Dark Souls smushed together. It's on the big three consoles and PC; highly recommend checking it out.

Why $107? I'm seeing $64-$69 or something...

I put about 40 hours into it myself. Still, need to go beat the final boss but I was trying to get the void heart. I will probably get just the regular edition. I want the CE but I have put a lot of money into Hollow Knight merc already.

Hollow Knight merc? Short for merchandise or something cool that I missed?

I'm not sure what all I've got left besides the fights with Grimm, Traitor Lord, Hollow Knight, and the 3rd stage of the coliseum but I got frustrated a few weeks ago and stopped playing.

I need to pick it back up and get everything finished.

I think all I had left was Nightmare Grimm. Not sure it's worth the headache to go back now.

The coliseum was a damn blast, frustrating, but loved it.

Because I didn't have a big enough back log already ... gdamnit. This looks pretty cool.

Limited Edition is available for PS4, looks like Switch doesn't even have a listing.

I got it on eshop for 15 and am a few hours in but here's my impressions

Graphics are good
Music is good
Story/characters/world is interesting

I guess my biggest beef is that the controls don't feel fluid or responsive at ALL...and this is a platformer. Maybe it gets better? I dunno
