Almost immediately, this new game was compared to Hollow Knight – with comments across various social media platforms stating how similar the two titles looked, and some even going as far as calling Gleamlight a "ripoff" of Team Cherry's hit release.
Polygon reached out to the game's publisher D3 and asked if the developer DICO was "aware" of Hollow Knight. This was the response it received back from a representative:
'Gleamlight’ is still in development and it’s not final at this moment. The dev team is aware of ‘Hollow Knight’ but the game has nothing to do with that title
DICO itself says the aesthetics, in particular, in Gleamlight are influenced by beautiful stained glass artistry.
