Overview:

The Huntress of the Hollow is a short, linear, pseudo-rpg game where the battles add more flavor to the narrative than to a true rpg. It's a slight spin on Little Red Riding Hood: a coming of age story where the hunted becomes the hunter.

Background:

Lenora Calamint lives with her mother in a small village called Pokeweed Hollow on the outskirts of a forest. She often delivers food to her stubborn grandmother, who prefers to live alone in the woods. While the forest is a dangerous place full of wolves, the village and her grandmother's house were peaceful.

However, once a travelling, charismatic hunter decided to settle near the village and offered to protect it, the local wolves became mysteriously violent and began to attack the village in erratic bursts of activity. Due to these events, some villagers praise the hunter for his help in keeping the wolves out of their homes. The others can't help but think there's something suspicious about the matter. Despite it all, Lenora still has a grandmother to take care of, and so she wakes up to begin her routine of visiting her grandmother anew.

Misaos woah

Hey!

Somehow, Huntress won "Best Antagonist", "Best Finale", and.... "Trippiest Game" Misaos?!

That's awesome! I don't get it at all, especially the trippiest one, but man, thank you everyone! You all are very sweet and I'm so very glad my game spoke to you all in such a way. I can't wait to make more games for you all. <3

I don't know how to use spoiler tag, trying my best not to spoil.

Say... Does Cayne have a trait similar to Avel's in the bonus room's description as to why Lenora could find a bloody Avel in the den at first?

When you say bloody Avel do you mean
finding avel's bloody wolf form first, or finding avel's bloody half-human form first?
I can't tell if your wording means you found a bug or if I'm bad at reading. IN ANY CASE I get what you're trying to get at, and I think, with Cayne, it's hard to say. I think there might be little heart in there somewhere, because as the bonus room implies, he was probably different in the past, plus some of his actions before the events of the game imply that as well.

However,
Avel does say he's tricky, and Cayne's monologuing also shows how he just likes to screw with people and kind of gets off on it too. If anything, the dude is pretty unpredictable. He appears out of nowhere and seemingly helps the village for a good time, maintains this perfect if a little bumbling guise as a happy-go-lucky huntsman, defends the village in one ending before abandoning it, appoints Lenora as his apprentice and spends years hunting with her while she's none the wiser in another ending, or goes on a full-on rampage when he's discovered by her and kills her. All of the endings where he clearly lives, he does end up killing his brother by himself. And in the ending where he "dies" to the wolf, he could have just run away after Lenora killed his brother, or continued to screw with the remaining pack.

At the end of the day, Cayne is dangerous and unpredictable and probably only keeps it together in his sane endings because he got to kill his brother like he wanted, but he isn't evil incarnate because he: subtly warns Lenora to stay out of his business instead of turning on her on the spot, if she agrees to stay the night at his cabin it's completely without incident, he doesnt slaughter the villagers in a sane ending, and he seems perfectly fine with Lenora tagging along with him for years without incident. Dude's hard to understand on principle I guess lol
Thank you for your answer.

Now for the exact meaning of my words (I never though the spoil function was just the hide function, used to the norms of another forum).

The Huntsman did not kill Avel for the first time so Lenora could spot him in his bloody wolf form. Avel is said to be ready to have his brother killed but not by his own hands. So I thought maybe Cayne at that point was not totally ready to behead his brother with his own axe.

Or could be as you said, just left him alive to screw with Lenora? (Nah, that means he knows Lenora would leave)

Yeah, I see what you're saying. Like, if they felt the same sort of hesitation, right?

Avel knows Cayne better than anyone, and said "He beat me something fierce and slipped away before you came here. He likes to do things like that. Tricky bastard." Cayne only let Avel live to mess with him and Avel knows it. The main difference between Cayne and Avel is that Avel intends for Lenora to kill Cayne 100%, technically keeping his hands clean. Cayne, in every ending except for Lenora killing Avel, always kills Avel himself. Cayne doesn't really have issues with killing Avel, he's just sadistic, pretty much!
I Love It!!!!!!!

At first it was so difficult defeating the wolves! Heck, I got easily killed during the first fifteen minutes.. but once I got a hold of it, It was surprisingly enjoyable and fun! The story does show some morals. One of them I learned is that we must be brave and rational despite how horrible the situation is! Learn to take risks.

Furthermore, the colours are so beautiful, how they have unique colours in each places I go.

Thankyou bleet! It's short, unique, beautiful and most importantly, it works smoothly! :')
This is my honest review of this game, for those who wants to play a fairly short but memorable game, I recommend this.

Nice short cute game would recommend,also good aesthetic, story and colors
Enjoyed this game.
- dialogue is very good
- everything flows well together from character and item names, art, color use, making a very charming (yet dangerous) atmosphere
- nice sprites like the various wolves and Lenora's evolving battle sprite
Hi, I liked your game and I loved all your pixelarts!! Sucess <3
I spend quite a time because I don't now how to get the ending D as I got E and C beforehand. Then I realized that it could only obtainable after ending A orz.

Aside from that, the plot is very intriguing and the characters are loveable. The graphic is a big plus too, I'm a sucker for cute pixel sprites and art //A//.


I have done all the endings and I really loved it! This game is so beautiful... thank you for doing a game with my favorite story!
