Hohokum out this summer for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita

2:00 PM on 05.08.2014

Just the prettiest game ever

Super Time Force, Transistor, and now Hohokum -- these next couple of months are going to be full of wonderful indie gems.

Everything about Hokohum just looks like it was designed for pure delight and fun. Artist Richard Hogg took to the PlayStation Blog where he said something I just have to highlight: "Today I was re-drawing some wonky hotdog-trees. They’re still pretty wonky but now it’s the right kind of wonky."

The video here goes in detail behind the art style of Hohokum, featuring how Hogg came up with the art, the process behind it, and we see some early sketchbook drawings Hogg worked on too.

Bonus: The Hohokum official website just launched, featuring wallpaper and songs featured in the game.

Hohokum is amazing. It can also be awful. My time with it was often as captivating as it was arduous. Hohokum is everything right and wrong with videogames. It's equally worthy of condemnation and acclaim. I adore this horrible thing.
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.
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 ...
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 f...
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.
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.
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...
