made available a video today announcing that Hohokum is coming to PS4, PS3 and PS Vita platforms on August 12th, 2014.
To quote: Hey folks! We're back with another behind-the-scenes look at Hohokum, and to share that Hohokum will be available on August 12th, 2014 for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita.
This one is focused on the roots of the game's design. A question we've been asked a lot is "How did you come up with this game?" The answer isn't straightforward, but hopefully this video will help to illustrate something of the process, as well as reveal some of our inspirations and design goals.
Dick and I started designing Hohokum back in 2008, and since that time it's gone through a lot of changes. For the first few years it was a side-project - something we worked on between other things, or when inspiration struck.
We didn't have a clear mechanic "hook" when starting out - more an overall sense of wanting to make a game that was relaxing and evoked a particular sense of free-form play. Over time this approach allowed the game we have today to emerge organically. I'm not sure we could have done it any other way.
Much of what the game is today...
