Wattam, the new game from Katamari Damacy creator Keita Takahashi, gets a PlayStation 4 and PC release date.
Annapurna Interactive will publish the long-awaited Wattam on PC and PlayStation 4 on December 17, 2019. Keita Takahashi’s game, which celebrates the greatness of ordinary life, has been in development for over five years.
Played either solo or co-op, Wattam takes players on a journey through a colourful world. Gameplay consists of solving puzzles, uncovering secrets and making friends with a vast array of characters by holding hands.
As you might expect from the creator of Katamari Damacy and Noby Noby Boy, the game is a graphical delight, and each location and character feeds into an adaptive music system.
“I have heard Death Stranding has a similar theme to Wattam, even it’s a totally different look. It’s very interesting if it’s true. But unfortunately, I can’t tell about it because I don’t have a PS4. Would you mind if I ask you to send me a PS4 Pro or PS5 to answer your question? I will return it to you after I finish Death Stranding. I promise!”

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
