A little something for whim
It’s alive! Fret not, Wattam, from the brilliant brain behind Katamari Damacy, Keita Takahashi, is still on the way. It’s been a few years since this game was first announced, and we were afraid that the squishy delight had been splatted but the adventures of The Mayor – y’know, the green one in the hat – are coming in 2018. ‘But what’s it actually about?’ you ask in a pained whisper. Well, er, ‘ joyful
explosions’ apparently. With more than 100 individual characters to interact with, Wattam’s world is littered with happy flowers, sentient mouths, joyful toilets (joyful at the explosions, perhaps?), and somehow adorable pieces of meat. Puzzle them together by making the flowers make friends, or the mouths eat the meat, and you’ll get those aforementioned explosions of friendship that send joy across the land and attract even more zany objects. Why is any of this a surprise?
Poops, a daisy
Everything can play together, and Wattam is all about unleashing your inner happiness monster as swirling colourful poop and vegetables skip through technicolour fields hand-in-hand. (No we didn’t order those suspicious looking brownies at lunch, honest – this is all in the game.) And it’s not just a cute visual assault; every object has its own melodic theme too, making Wattam a feast for your ears as well as your eyes. We’re ready to embrace the madness and make some new friends.
“colourful poop and veg skip through technicolour fields”
Form a friendship and a colourful explosion is the result. If only that were true in real life, eh? Though we still wouldn’t be making friends with poop.
