The Grimm Troupe Release Date! Inktober! PAX Aus Speedrun!

Today’s update is a short, spooky announce!

Get ready gang! The Grimm Troupe, HK’s second free content pack, will descend for PC, Mac & Linux players on October the 26th!

The Grimm Troupe will arrive as a free update for Steam and GOG players. For DRM Free players through Humble Bundle, an updated version of the game will be made available at the same time through your humble link.

For GOG players, we’ve added in the full GOG Galaxy feature set, so get ready to see those achievements popping, and your saves safely backed up in a cloud somewhere!

That’s the big news, but we just have to fit in a few small things before we dash back to work:

Inktober

October is becoming the artsiest time of the year thanks to Inktober, in which creative types from across the globe pull out their pens and brushes to produce 30 pieces of original work. Hollow Knight’s been getting lots of love through the month, so we’re going to spotlight a few of our faves.

While we’re on the creative kick, we also just had to share these two amazing, recent fan arts:

Hollow Knight Speedrun at PAX Aus

PAX Australia begins in Melbourne on the 27th of this Month, just one day after Grimm’s big debut. Team Cherry won’t be showing Hollow Knight at the Con (We’re holding off till we can show everyone the Switch version!), but the game is still present in one very important way: Speedrunning!

Hollow Knight will be run at PAX on Sunday the 29th by Simo, creator of HK’s Discord(https://discord.me/hollowknight?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss), and one of our favourite people! Team Cherry is trying to squeeze in an ultra-quick trip over to Melbourne to watch the run. If you’re attending the show, then you Must Be There!

Last Screen-Prints Are Sent!

For $75 and above Backers the final screen-print design is now printed, signed and delivered! For the few of you that have yet to receive a print, please allow 4 weeks for them to arrive.

The only remaining rewards to send out are artworks for a few of our highest-tier backers, specifically: watercolours of their upcoming bosses! With the bosses landing alongside Hornet and her adventure, backers can expect to receive those watercolours at the same time. Everyone else, get ready to face these fierce new adversaries armed with needle and thread!

That’s it gang! Short and sharp. Holloween is almost upon us.

Till next time 😉
