Team Cherry is still in the midst of developing Hollow Knight: Silk song, a follow-up to the original game that sees you play as Hollow Knight’s secondary protagonist, Hornet, who becomes trapped in the deepest levels of Pharloom, the Kingdom of Silk and Song. In order to escape, it must travel uphill toward freedom, using its speed, agility, and combat prowess to defeat deadly insects and spiders.
