Funomena has re-revealed Katamari Damacy creator Keita Takahashi’s new game, Wattam.

Here’s a rundown on the game, via Annupurna:


From the imaginations of Keita Takahashi (creator of Katamari Damacy) and developer Funomena comes the weird, wild, wacky, whimsical world of Wattam.

MAKE NEW FRIENDS: The Mayor invites you to explore the colorful world of Wattam and bond with over 100 unique and carefree characters. The connections you form open a treasure chest of possibilities – playing, switching, stacking, climbing, chasing, floating, exploding and/or dancing all in the name of fun.

EXPERIENCE JOYFUL EXPLOSIONS: The Mayor loves creating colorful explosions. The more joyful the explosion, the more characters will come and play.

EXPLORE AWESOME MUSIC: Each character in Wattam has their own unique melody. Characters can also chain together to create whimsical mashups.

HAVE ENDLESS ADVENTURES: Discover what’s possible when you abandon all preconceived notions about what it means to play in games. Learn about the different origins of Wattam’s citizens, then work together with them to solve weird puzzles, celebrate special events and explore your imagination to its fullest.


A release window for Wattam is set for sometime next year.
