Publisher SCE Developer Honeyslug Format PS3, PS4, Vita Release August 12 (NA), 13 (EU)
Some games make for better demos than others, and Hohokum is in the latter camp. We’re a sort of kite with a long tail and an eye; one button makes us go fast, another slows us down, a third closes our eye. We flit around. Gigantic kidney beans turn into insects that flutter off the top of the screen. An elephant strides languidly from right to left. People sit on its back, and a cage dangles from its tail. We press buttons hopefully. Nothing. We are late for our next appointment. Trying to play
Hohokum amid the bombast of a busy E3 is like watching someone who has never seen a game before play Noby Noby Boy at a Skrillex show. Still, it looks delightful, the Ghostly International soundtrack is a wonderful accompaniment, and we can’t wait to fathom the unfathomable at our own pace when Hohokum releases in August.
