“I never cared about this ship...I just…wanted to find myself. I had to. Something deep in my brain – deep in my very soul – clawed at me, struggling to make sense of everything. But the sad truth is that it never could. I never could. I still can’t remember who I am.” Hello, prospective crew member! Welcome to Shakhter-One, the first space mining ship to gather resources from the atmosphere of the planet Jupiter! Shakhter-One provides mass quantities of supplies to a resource-starved Earth. Thanks to Shakhter-One, we no longer have to depend on coal or oil! Still not sold on making Shakhter-One your new home? “I don’t even know if this has happened before. Me, here, telling this same, exact story. Surely not. I would remember that… Right?” Shakhter-One offers a fresh start among the stars! On Shakhter-One, everybody is important! Everybody is employed! All children have an equal start! We’re confident you’ll see that Shakhter-One is the perfect place to begin your family’s future! “The only thing that I can truly be sure of is the constant, pervading feeling I have deep inside. I’m empty. I’m hollow.” In Hollow, you are one of the pilots that transports precious resource cargo from the mining ship Shakhter-One down to Earth. One day you wake up in an emergency capsule drifting near the facility. You don’t remember who you are, or how you got out there. All you can remember is an autopilot docking code for capsule dock NR 6. When you dock with Shakhter-One, it is clear that something has gone horribly wrong. The crew is missing and the entire facility is dealing with catastrophic power issues. As you start to uncover the ship’s terrifying secrets, Shakhter-One threatens to take your identity, your sanity, and ultimately, your life. The worst evil is the one that knows us better than we know ourselves. The worst nightmare is the one borne in our past, emotions, fears, and pain.

Hollow is a complete failure and a real mockery. Monotonous, confusing and miserable game. It doesn't deserve your attention even with price slashed by 90%.

Review in Russian | Read full review

Hollow tries to break into the circle of horror games for the Nintendo Switch, which has been growing considerably over the months. While Hollow does a good job at presenting the right atmosphere for a horror game, it loses its potential when it comes to the actual gameplay, which feels heavy and slow and the experience suffers from several technical issues and bugs that make it more difficult to enjoy.

Review in Portuguese | Read full review

Hollow is an incredibly ugly game with the kind of plentiful technical issues that make it actively difficult to play. Those with a masochistic streak might derive some pleasure from its abrasiveness and its downbeat tone, but most Switch-owning horror fans would be much better served playing through Resident Evil Revelations and its sequel for the umpteenth time.

There's nothing that actually redeems Hollow. It's a B-grade Dead Space clone that follows the "rules" of horror without actually understanding any of them.
