Hollow Knight Merchandise



Hollow Knight is being developed by Team Cherry in Adelaide, South Australia. We’re a team of 3 people who, alongside making the game, are responsible for building these websites, cutting those game trailers, posting regular game updates, answering questions on social media and much more. Though it’s a lot of work, we love doing it and it’s made even more enjoyable by the enthusiastic support we’ve received from fans this whole way.

You can find out more about us and Hollow Knight’s development here:


Ari Gibson

Ari is responsible for game design alongside William; creates the game’s art and animates hundreds of bugs. Thanks to Hollow Knight, he now knows an awful lot about insects.


William Pellen

William designs the game along with Ari. He creates all the hero, enemy, boss and game behaviour for Hollow Knight. If an enemy seems too challenging or a gauntlet insurmountable,  blame him!


David Kazi

Dave was responsible for Hollow Knight’s technical direction. He divided his time between making the game run and fixing things that Ari and William break. 

Matt Griffin

Matt 'Leth' Griffin

Matt is handling PR, marketing, testing and translation for the game. He’s previously worked in this role for Stardew Valley, Interstellaria and Wanderlust Adventures.
