All Articles: Wattam
Keita Takahashi and Robin Hunicke are collaborating on a new game, as you can see in the trailer above. It’s called Wattam, which “is actually composed of the Tamil and Japanese words for ‘making a circle’ or ‘making a loop,'” according to the PlayStation Blog. Takahashi is best known as the creator of the much-beloved Katamari franchise while Hunicke was a producer for Journey at thatgamecompany, and is now the co-founder of Funomena.
The little guy in the trailer is a character known as the mayor of the world. Hunicke said they’ll be introducing players to more characters throughout 2015. She also gave some background on Wattam: “The idea for this game came from when Keita was playing with his two-year old son, and wondered about what if all toys lived, and connected by themselves? It would be such a fun world to explore and play with! The word ‘Wattam’ itself The initial prototype for this game was made by Keita and his friend Vikram, who are from these two cultures respectively, and this new word acknowledges one of the game’s core inspirations: making connections between different types of things.”
Hunicke also mentioned this in the comments: “Also, Keita and I will host a panel this afternoon here at PSX. We will be talking about some of the inspirations behind his work – hope to see some of you there!” Hopefully some of you got to check it out!
