Star in the Hollow follows the story of a young girl, Kay, who finds herself alone in a massive cave with no memory of how she arrived there. After a bit of stumbling around by herself, she meets a Luminarii named Tayir. He offers to help her get out of the cave, and hopefully, return to a family that she can’t even remember.
The game follows the pair’s adventure through this vast, beautiful underground world. However, all is not well on their journey. There is a strange ghost child that haunts Kay, and Tayir seems to be keeping secrets from her.
Even still, Tayir promises to help the child find her way out. The question remains: what is to be found at the end of this world?
Kay excels in vertical movement. She has a triple jump and cartwheel that help her get around. She also has the ability to wall-jump and swim through water. She wields a simple stick as her weapon.
Tayir excels in horizontal movement. He has a dash and glide that lets him cross great distances quickly. He can run across walls and glide through gusts of air to keep his momentum going. Tayir uses his powerful wings to keep foes at bay.
The entire game can be experienced either in Single-player or Local Multi-player with a friend.
There are great holes in the ceiling that cast light into the mysterious region. There is an additional great cloud layer that diffuses the light cast and illuminates the lands. For being underground, everything sure seems to be very vibrant and alive!
Across their journey, Kay and Tayir will explore dark caves, green hills, icy oceans, dilapidated encampments, and whimsical forests.
