If there’s one thing I know about Hollow Knight, it’s that people who love Hollow Knight… Well, they really love Hollow Knight. So with such a huge and rabid fanbase, there’s plenty of incredible artwork to enjoy, especially if you’re looking for a way to brighten up your desktop or smart device.
Every frame of Hollow Knight could be a piece of art, with its gorgeous settings filled with overgrown foliage, creepy caverns, and sprawling gothic architecture. If you think it’s just a game about bugs, well you’ll likely be pleasantly surprised. So, why not set your background to one of these Hollow Knight wallpapers?
We’ve tried to include plenty of different pieces covering both Hollow Knight and its sequel Hollow Knight: Silksong, even though we don’t know much about it yet. Hopefully, we’ll hear more about the Hollow Knight: Silksong release date very soon. But for now, remind yourself of the beauty of Hallownest every day with some amazing backgrounds and wallpapers.
Here is our selection of the best Hollow Knight backgrounds and wallpapers.
