Yes, it's another Steam sale thread, but this is one that I feel really deserves as much attention as it can possibly get. Never before having been discounted on Steam, now's the perfect time to buy!

The critic reviews highlighted on Steam are absolutely on point. A beautiful, expertly designed 'Metroidvania' (with comparisons also drawn to Dark Souls), I'd encourage everyone to give this a go if it sounds even the least bit of interest

ABOUT THIS GAME

Brave the Depths of a Forgotten Kingdom
Beneath the fading town of Dirtmouth sleeps an ancient, ruined kingdom. Many are drawn below the surface, searching for riches, or glory, or answers to old secrets.

Hollow Knight is a classically styled 2D action adventure across a vast interconnected world. Explore twisting caverns, ancient cities and deadly wastes; battle tainted creatures and befriend bizarre bugs; and solve ancient mysteries at the kingdom's heart.

    Awesome game! It really is masterfully crafted in every regard; the world is a joy to explore. At this price it's a wicked deal

    I'm liking this Steam Sale.
    This game was already priced amazingly low, even at full price.

    It's not some 3-5 hour indie title. It's a properly meaty experience.

    ​ive had my eye on this but I'm a little burnt out on metroidvania games right now. I would actually prefer it was only a 6 hour game but I hear its a pretty long game
    This game is fantastic, harder than you're average Metroidvania though, be warned!

    Indeed - hence the comparions to Dark Souls! That said, though, while I'm not a great fan of the Souls games, I love Hollow Knight.
    Possibly the greatest metroidvania ever made. Definitely deserves it's own thread!

    I'm not sure whether it could necessarily quite top Super Metroid and Symphony of the Night, but it's certainly up there as one of the very best recent games of this type, alongside Axiom Verge.
