Crowsworn is an upcoming grim fantasy action-platformer metroidvania inspired by the likes of Hollow Knight, Bloodborne, and Devil May Cry. It's been in development for a while and a fresh trailer has arrived.

This was funded on Kickstarter where it became one of the top most-funded games on the platform. Celebrating their one year anniversary of the Kickstarter, the newest trailer showcases some of what has been seen before plus some new footage included too:

This game looks very inspired by hollow knight. Almost needs to dedicate part of their steam page to saying what they do different?

It also looks fun though and I imagine that confusion will settle down as it establishes itself.

When a game has "Spandex-tight controls", you know you're in good hands.

I can definitely see the influence from Hollow Knight. Someone further up in the comments mentioned something about how they should dedicate a section on their Steam Store page about what they do different - hey, sometimes more of something good is a good thing on its own :)

It basically screams "Hollow Knight" from the first time I saw it, but looks amazing nonetheless, I can't wait to give it a try! :)

I think I can see a little bit of hollow knight in there. The color palette seems kinda like a few of Hollow Knights levels. But I also get a very a much more Anime vibe, which I like.
