Chill out with Hohokum on August 12

The original design for Hohokum, as shown this making-of video, doesn't look very good at all. Thankfully, after a "long, strange, meandering journey," developer Honeyslug settled on something that is truly great. It's set for release on PS3, PS4, and PS Vita on August 12, 2014.

Ever since my first hands-on with Hohokum almost exactly a year ago, I've been longing to play again and get lost in its world, uninterrupted. It's one of those games where movement itself is a joy -- it just feels right. The music and art are also great, but that goes without saying.

It's wild to hear that work on the game, which began as a side project, started way back in 2008. Thank goodness it was given the necessary time to flourish.

I've been looping Hohokum's OST all day and you can too

Sometimes I worry not enough of you appreciate how good Hohokum is. It has a poop factory.  It also has a great soundtrack, which I've been listening to on repeat for most of this dragging day. You can, too. Just click here. And if you like it enough that you want to buy it when it comes out on August 12, just click here.more

I'm afraid not enough people will play Hohokum

Hohokum isn't an easily described game. It's one of those cases where it's not until you try it for yourself that you fully grasp the appeal, which can be a tough sell. Yeah, the whimsical art direction is terrific, but the ...more

Hohokum soothes the minds of everyone who plays it

We recently had the pleasure of diving into Hohokum with Sr. Producer, Zach Wood, live on Dtoid.TV. It seemed to put everyone in the room into a technicolor joy trance, and we've heard similar reports of players elsewhere being pacified by the vibrant world of Hohokum. Watch the video above to see for yourself.more

Unfair: Gorgeous Hohokum shows off the Fun Fair

Hohokum was the first game I played on PS4. The hectic din of the E3 show floor dulled as I lost myself in its beautiful world, flitting about with my kite snake, rescuing strange little people. It's all about exploration and getting lost and I love it. Now we just need a release date. Hohokum on, guys. I've been waiting patiently.more

I lost track of time with the laid-back Hohokum

Hohokum is one of the games at E3 that might just convince me to buy a PlayStation Vita already, even if it is also coming to PS3 and PS4 next year. Playing it on Vita with a nice pair of headphones seems like the only way t...more
