Team Cherry released today a new trailer for Hollow Knight. Hollow Knight is a challenging and mysterious 2D adventure through a surreal world of insects and heroes, in which players can dive into the dreams of the strange bugs they meet and find bizarre new worlds full of danger and treasure.
Deep in the caverns of Hallownest, players can find bizarre artefact, the Dream Nail. With focus the blade can be used to slice through the conscious layer of a being’s mind and access the “Dream Well,” a deep space containing a bug’s hopes, fears and secrets. As they search for the core of the dream, terrible nightmares and unique challenges will test the player, but they’ll also uncover startling revelations and claim precious treasures that can’t be found anywhere else.
This mechanic adds a whole other layer to exploration in Hollow Knight, as players are able to enter the dreams of almost every character they meet. Dreams will fit the personality of each character and may even reveal some surprising secrets they have hidden away. These dreams will often involve unique twists on the Hollow Knight gameplay, such as challenging you to escape a horde of invincible flying nightmares or defeat a group of creatures without your nail. The Dream Nail is a mysterious weapon with hidden uses, and inquisitive players will find dreams hidden in the strangest of places.
