Wattam, the whimsical new game from Katamari Damacy‘s Keita Takahashi, is still happening. Phew. I was getting worried there! The last time I played the hard-to-pin-down game was back in 2015.
Funomena has partnered with publisher Annapurna Interactive for a 2018 release on “console and PC.”
What is Wattam, exactly? You take control of different almost toy-liked characters — say, a doughnut and a coffee cup, or a toilet and a turd — and you work to get them to hold hands and be friends. Or, something like that. This is a Takahashi joint through and through. It’s much better seen than described.
