Annapurna Interactive announced today that it will be publishing Wattam, the new title from Katamari Damacy and Noby Noby Boy creator Keita Takahashi. Wattam will be coming to PC and "consoles" in 2018. The game will be available for play this weekend at PAX West in Seattle.
Wattam has you taking control of a cube-shaped green character called The Mayor, as it does its best to make friends and enjoy life. It's definitely the kind of game that Takahashi is known for.
Takahashi has been working on the project with indie studio Funomena for some years now. The game debuted at PlayStation Experience in 2014 and at the time it was going to be published by Sony Interactive Entertainment. It was ultimately dropped by the publisher in 2016, alongside RIME and What Remains of Edith Finch. Annapurna Interactive picked up the latter title, releasing it earlier this year.
Annapurna Interactive is the gaming division of film production company Annapurna Pictures. The publisher will also be releasing the recently-announced Kentucky Route Zero: TV Edition for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PlayStation in 2018.
