Knowing The Hollow Book and its author: why Hollow Knight
Speaking to this medium, Pineda maintains that the purpose of the book is none other than “to pay tribute to one of the most special games that I have been lucky enough to enjoy. Before I had the green light to carry it out, I had not even thought about something like ‘I’m going to write a book about a video game or series, but I don’t know which one to choose’. Everything was quick when making the decision; let’s say first it was Hollow Knight, and then the book itself”. A fan and student of the work, for him it has been to fulfill a dream.
Now why Hollow Knight? “It is a title that began to forge its phenomenon without making too much noise. The word of mouth he did has led him to be one of the greats of the generation And that is something that makes those of us who bet on him happy since his financing campaign. Nonetheless, a lot of people played it without following the thread of the story too hard because of how cryptic it is, that’s why I think it lends itself a lot to investigating and ordering everything that its universe hides ”. And so this book will help to better understand the creative will of Team Cherry.
“There is a phrase that we have commented several times in the team: ‘there are people who have even made all the achievements but still don’t know what the story is about.’ I think that’s the most valuable thing a Hollow Knight follower can find in him: know details of the lore that perhaps I would not have imagined“, He asserts, and concludes convinced:” That, and the gigantic artwork of the rest of the team when it comes to both illustrating absolutely everything by hand, and interpreting the plot chapters even without knowing the title. It is a book of books that addresses the most relevant that a player can find —And overlook— during his journey through Hallownest. “
The Hollow Book It will reach its buyers this November. The first book published in Spain on the Hollow Knight phenomenon.
