I'm afraid not enough people will play Hohokum


1:15 PM on 07.23.2014



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 way the game feels is pretty great, too! The people who are into it seem to really dig it, but I worry there's just not enough awareness.

With a Cross-Buy launch on PS3, PS4, and PS Vita, hopefully it'll find its place with those latter two systems especially, which are in need of more games and more non-ports, respectively.

As you may have heard, Hohokum is a part of this year's PlayStation Store PLAY program, which means PlayStation Plus members can save 20 percent by pre-ordering the game, but there's more: pre-orders also include a static PS3 theme and an exclusive Hohokum DLC pack for Sound Shapes. Anyway, it's out on August 12. Hope you play it and dig.

Review: Hohokum

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.more

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

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 f...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

Team17 to publish blind adventure Beyond Eyes

Review: Size DOES Matter

Simple graphics, twitch gameplay, and fresh music constitute a good formula for mobile gaming. Titles like this allow for a quick bit of play during minutes of downtime, and can paradoxically keep players going for long perio...more

Wolfire's cool, experimental FPS Receiver is free today

Wolfire Games' Receiver is a first-person shooter unlike any other I've played. Instead of a quick button press to reload your gun, here, reloading is a much more realistic, multi-step process that requires effort on your par...more
