Hohokum developers Honeyslug took to the PS Blog to explain more about their zany title, and to announce that it will be releasing on PS3/4 and PS Vita on August 12th.
If you’ve not heard of Hohoukum before, then allow me to try to explain. From their own website, Honeyslug describe it as “It is a whimsical colorful game with an emphasis on playful exploration and creativity. Players take on the role of a curious flying Technicolor kite-like being. Along their travels through the vibrant world, players will be able to uncover secrets by interacting with elements around them in different ways such as carrying characters to new areas on their back or flying over objects to illuminate them. The world of Hohokum is full of surprise; even running into certain objects can be its own reward as the interaction produces a tune or sounds that add to the level’s music track. From the way a player navigates the world to the various ways characters communicate to the abstract vivid artwork, Hohokum is an expressive and mesmerizing universe. While there are goals, secrets and Trophies discovered along the way, at its heart, Hohokum is a playground — a place to wander about and get lost in.”
Does that explain it? If not then you really need to watch this video.
