Team Cherry's entry for the Ludum Dare Game Jam 27!

The theme of this jam was 10 Seconds. So we present to you Hungry Knight, a determined little adventurer with a big appetite. Fight your way through a strange wasteland, keep yourself fed every ten seconds, and accomplish a miracle. Others may perish at your hand, but such is the remorselessness of this world.

A challenging action game. It's hard, but you can do it! Be brave.

Hollow knight is better.

Great little LD game, but I wish starvation mode unlocked an alternate ending! Overall, I had a lot of fun in the "endless combo" you're forced to maintain.

Don't know why it has such a low score, though. I had no lag whatsoever.

Why it's have swuch a low score? It isn't the best, but it isn't the worst either.

I don't get why the bad overall scores, but after beating the released Hollow Knight earlier this year, just finding this build right here on Newgrounds as the result of a game jam is such a cool surprise!! It's amazing to see the basic principles of the character movement, the premise of masked creatures and even the main character's design having an early presence. Makes me wonder if the eating mechanic was considered for the game at some point, heheh!

Regarding this build, it was a bit though to control, but satisfying nonetheless, it already evolved into a fantastic game, so I guess there's not much to add as a review ;) .

Found you by a complete accident thanks to your Hollow Knight (haven't played it yet, for some reason I can't load it on my laptop, it keeps crashing before even loading menu :c) and I have a few things to say.
First, it's adorable. Love this little berry-loving fella :3 I even kinda feel bad for killing those bug-guys for theis berries, they're adorable too!
Second, if this game is related to Hollow Knight in more ways than just having protagonist look the same and having a little reference to this game ("So you’re not hungry anymore? Yes, that was quite the appetite. I was impressed."), then I'm more than just a little puzzled about combined lore of these two HKs.
Third, GOD. If I was that much irritated and angry at myself dying stupidly (dashing into bug-guys instead of slashing), how much stressful to me Hollow Knight is gonna be?
In short, you've made a good game and it's really wonderful to see how your idea evolved in Hollow Knight. You're great!
