Hollow Knight is #ing awesome. I picked it up off steam a few weeks ago. Haven't beat it yet but i've got almost 60 hours on it. It's the first new
game i've bought in 8 years and it was definitely worth it. It's the only game i've played that gave me the same feeling as playing through super
metroid the first time as a kid.
There's so much to explore, it's frustratingly difficult but the controls are smooth and it's not cheap difficult, i'm a really big fan of the artwork
and armosphere, it's genuinely creepy and fairly terrifying in some parts.
It's probably my second favourite game after super metroid. About the only metroid sequel after that came close was the first prime game, i enjoy the
castlevania series but it's just not the same. Hollow Knight's really the first game dince that's recaptures that feeling of being lost and alone in a
strange dangerous place.
Also, is your username from Axiom Verge? I picked that up fairly recently too and while it's no Hollow Knight it's fairly great so far.
I just wish more metroidvanias would come out for linux, there's a bunch more newer ones i hear are good i wouldn't mind trying.
