Hollow Knight: Lifeblood has just released aiming to make the already amazing action adventure game even better. I must say, 
Team Cherry have really put in some exceptional post-release support for this one.

Here's what the developer said is included in this latest free update:

  • A brand new boss with a new music track by Chris Larkin!
  • One boss has been seriously upgraded. A true challenge awaits!
  • Custom Map Markers are here! Cartographers rejoice!
  • Extras added to the Extras menu!
  • Numerous game balances and tweaks.
  • Now playable in Japanese.
  • Various bug fixes.
  • Additional sound effects and voices.
  • Optimisations and performance enhancements.

They've added so much to the game since the initial release it's a bit crazy, it's still quite rare for so much to be added completely free, so they're worth supporting. Not just that though, the game itself is really damn good.

You can grab it now from Humble Store, GOG and Steam.

I don't even own a copy of Hollow Knight anymore. I completely wiped it off my Steam library.

Why did you delete off your library??? For me the game doesn't work with my old save from the Grimm Troupe update. I just get an endless loading loop when I try to launch my old save which I have put over 40 hours into. I am on Arch Linux btw and I have bug reported to Team Cherry as well.

Well, that kind of support is mostly what drove me into buying this game. And I won't throw rocks at developers because they are passionate about their game :)

Moreover, it could be... I don't know, maybe a team that banded together to make this great game... There would be no point in releasing another one if so.
Who knows? Maybe these tweaks are actually worth it financially, not taking much time, and keeping the community engaged, the playerbase active, and people recommending it to their friends, and they could already be working on their next title.

As far as I remember, it has been less than two years since release. It's really a pity that most developers stop caring about their games ~ 40 days after release, while in the past that kind of support was not unusual. A developer that values experience over raw financial returns/profit/margin, I will value as well!

Thanks a lot Cherry Team for this great game <3 (which I yet have to finish after putting more than 30 hours into).
