Hollow Knight, which received great criticism, broke a new record four years after its release. The game, which is shown as one of the most suitable examples of the Metroidvania type, managed to surpass the numbers it caught while at the top of its popularity in the past days.
According to SteamDB’s information, Hollow Knight broke its own record by hosting 12,891 players on August 5, 2021. As I write the lines, I can see that there are 6,843 people in the game. The interesting thing about this record is that it is not a situation that triggers the rise.
The game, which was released by Team Cherry in February 2017, has become the darling of indie gamers. The game, which managed to create a mass for itself in a short time, had a share in the emergence of many games of the same type.
