Right up front, we have to say a very quick, a very sincere thank you to all of you and your response to Silksong’s surprise-announce. Keeping a secret like that for 2 years is crazy tough! And the enthusiasm and passion from the community and fans is the world’s best reward. We’re right now working double-hard to make Hornet’s big adventure the giant, sprawling, surprising journey, you deserve.
But today is a speed update! So we’re not going into lavish details, or revealing new game features. Instead, we’re doing a quick-dash-intro to a few of Hornet’s friends and rivals, an all new cast of wild, strange bugs within a vast new kingdom – the haunted land of Pharloom.
Hornet will wake in this withered land, a kingdom dedicated to faith and pilgrimage, crowned by an enormous, shining citadel and bursting with weird and wonderful creatures.
Fierce and intimidating, Shakra is a warrior seeking her master, who vanished under strange circumstances. Shakra’s clan are skilled fighters who can handle their own in the kingdom’s wilds. Usefully for Hornet, each member of the clan also hones a Craft-Skill and Shakra’s mastery of cartography will prove invaluable on Hornet’s adventure
