I'm hoping I'm not the only one playing this at the moment because, uh...this game is quite good.
So I am having a lot of fun with this game. 30 hours dedicated. But there is one boss battle that is just different than the rest and it shouldn't be but it's kicking my ass. Hornet while in Kingdom's Edge.
I have 29 charms, and 9 charm notches. I can't seem to find a suitable combo to help me here.
Thanks Michael! Definitely am! I'm making my way up the Watcher's Spire now which apparently is leading me to my first of those three mask looking things. I presume going and beating bosses at those three is how I actually unlock the end of the game. I've played for 35 hours and never once faced one of those areas so I am curious if that's an accurate guess or not. I suppose I shall see.
So I tried to get other charms, beat other side-bosses. I collected the second of the three items I needed to progress. The third one stays locked away behind that door... that door that crashes all of the world down around me.
I archived the software and now I'm re-downloading it. Hopefully a fresh install will fix this. No googling shows any evidence of this crash happening to anyone else.
I was really close to the end too. Managed to beat it this morning, with a 92% completion ranking. I'm missing a few charms and I only had a 3-phase boss-fight. But I'm okay with that. Ultimately I enjoyed putting a solid 38.5 hours into this.
@chrisbg99 Yeah, it took a little bit for me to warm up to Hollow Knight, but I ended up really enjoying it. Lots of content and plenty of fun details, plus a solid level of challenge. It might be my favorite indie game I've played, or at least chilling out on the same level as Shovel Knight and the original Steamworld Dig.
I finally got around to playing this, and OH MY GOSH I LOVE IT! What a gorgeous, fun game this is. Friends were over so we fired it up and one of them started it (and I'm glad he did because I would have been lost if I was playing I think) but then today I started my own save file and have been having a blast with the game. Great Indie title, super recommended! And oh so charming. The art and writing is superb.
Played more of this, and those friends of mine keep wanting to come back and play too.
I keep being astounded by the level of quality. I guess I should get used to it, but wow, this thing is a masterpiece of design and appeal. The sounds alone are incredible and add to the atmosphere in ways I am not used to games doing! Outstanding. It also seems extremely well balanced so far. I have been challenged, but never to the point of giving up. It also has never felt unfair, just a good exercise in "I can do this!"
I did get a little lost at one point. I knew I needed to find an area I watched my friend find on his play through, but couldn't manage to locate it on my own. Last night I finally managed to reach it, and now I can move on to the next section.
