Hollow Knight Lore and Plot Explained

Hollow Knight is pretty confusing. Hopefully this video makes the game a little less confusing. But it might make it more confusing.

This video has been deemed about 80% accurate by a play tester and good friend of the development team.

There are many things I assumed, despite the lack of evidence. For example, we don’t know for sure if the Hollow Knight was locked in the temple of the Black Egg before or after the Dreamers were put to sleep. Since smalls details like that don’t really change the story that much, I didn’t spend time in the video bringing them up.

Let me know in the comment section what I got wrong or what I should have mentioned. Also, share your own theories about Hollow Knight’s story. Theorizing is super fun and I want to hear your ideas.

My original plan was to annotate the shit out of any wrong statements in the video, but I just now realized that YouTube has removed the annotation feature. So I’m shit out of luck on that front.
