Wow, thank you so much for getting to the bottom of that! Huh... Yeah... That figures... The logo history doesn’t surprise me... It’s just like I said - the Hornet simps are making the fandom insanely toxic, hyping up Hornet and Silksong like she’s a goddess when she’s just a mere poorly-developed anti-hero. I honestly typically avoid anything to do with HK fandom on account of the Hornet simps and how horribly they treat everyone who isn’t on-board with their Hornet waifu cult and “Silksong hype!!!!1” as they chant everywhere... And I’m dead-serious when I say this, but I know for a fact that a good chunk of those Hornet simps don’t even play the damn original game... They just hear about the character from the fandom and jump on the simp bandwagon... That’s how bad this is... —— Ugh, I’ll try not to go on too much of a rant, but I really want to know — does the TRUE majority of the Hollow Knight fandom REALLY want to turn a game with so much potential into just another mindless “anime waifu game”??? Like, just screw the Knight and everyone else (all of the incredible, endearing, memorable characters, and incredible Hallownest locations, from HK, with so much potential for further development), dump them ALL in the garage, forget they ever existed, and simp, simp, simp for Hornet (oh, and that NEW waifu Lace)??? That’s literally all Silksong is and ever will be... It is the DEATH of this entire series, barely related to the original game aside from *one* flipping character pulled out from it — NOT a true sequel, and I am just really fed-up with of all this nonsense... Team Cherry is just as much at fault, possibly worse than the fandom. I know this is an unpopular opinion, but I despise Hornet and never saw the appeal in her character at all. With better, revamped writing, she actually isn’t a necessary character at all, and can easily be written out... We all know Team Cherry only created her to be the pointless killer-waifu character with a screeching “magical anime girl” voice (that seriously makes me want to staple my ears shut every time I hear it), specifically and strategically assigning a young Japanese woman to voice her (and that hideous “Lace” too, by the way... I see where this is going...)
Team Cherry made a ridiculous knee-jerk move, dumping the legendary Hallownest in the garbage as a sacrifice for their little “goddess” Hornet because they and the toxic loud-minority(?) of the fandom have a weird thing for her. Now I wonder if TC might be regretting it? Three years and nothing? Ha... Their sudden silence is extremely weird... If they had just hired a writer and made a *real* sequel, reviving Hallownest and adding more content onto the kingdom, with the ability to play as *multiple* different characters (not JUST Hornet) using all sorts of weapons and combat styles, Hollow Knight might have had an incredible comeback! Throwing away all of the original characters aside from Hornet and trashing Hallownest is completely idiotic... ——
TL;DR: Anyhow.... Please do forgive me for the rant - I’m actually very much mourning the death of this incredible game at the hands of Hornet and her toxic cult... Thanks, Team Cherry! I wish we could at least give the Knight, the true hero who sacrificed himself for his kingdom (along with his elder brother, and shade siblings), a freaking logo for HIS rather unfinished game’s wiki before TC sacrifices the whole series to their little tyrant arachnid princess goddess, and the Knight is forgotten/unappreciated...
