Wattam brings back Katamari's sense of guilt-free (and weird) fun

by: Eric -

I once read (and I can't remember where) that video games consist of beautiful worlds created simply to let the player loose within to kill things. Although that statement isn't 100% true, it is too close to accuracy for comfort. 

Luckily, there are still people like Keita Takahashi creating games. The creator of Katamari Damacy and Nobi Nobi Boy, Keita seems determined to create unusual games and worlds that allow players to have a good time without the violence. 

Boasting solo and same-screen co-op, Wattam looks like the sort of game that family's could settle into, regardless of how young the kids are. And anyone that has played Katamari can tell you, family-friendly doesn't mean "easy".

I found this fine descriptive text on Funomena's site:

"In Wattam, more than 100 wacky and carefree characters are waiting to be unlocked and become your friends, from sushi to seashells, and gigantic trees to normal-sized toilets. The Mayor will be your tour guide through this whimsical world, as you dance, chase, climb, stack, float, explode and hold hands through all the fun."

Wattam is scheduled to release in December, 2019 on PS4 and the Epic Games Store.
