Hohokum on PS4: New Trailer of the Guano Factory Debuted

Ricky Haggett's Avatar + Posted by Ricky Haggett on Sep 19, 2013 // Designer & Co-Founder, Honeyslug

We’re really excited to unveil a new place in Hohokum today — the Guano Factory — with a new teaser trailer made by Scott Benson, and backed by one of our favorite Matthew Dear songs: Temptation. Matthew Dear is a founding artist of Ghostly International, and is also a DJ, dance-music producer, and an experimental pop artist. The Temptation track is off his latest album, Beams — a suite of weird, wild, and optimistic rhythm-driven pop. The perfect type of music for Hohokum.

In our first trailer, we glimpsed lots of places in Hohokum, and showed some gameplay, but this time around we wanted to try something different: focusing right down on a single part of the game — and the characters and action that happens there — and making something that feels more like a music video than a gameplay trailer.

Not every place in Hohokum is a peaceful place. For example, this factory is a noisy, dirty place, full of pipes and strange machines and bad smells. What are they doing here? What is that gloopy yellow stuff? What are they making with it? We’ll leave that for you to figure out for yourself.

Are those things eating poop? Thats what guano means in spanish: bat poop. All I could see was stuff related to poop :S Other than that, looks pretty cool :)

I thought this was coming to the Vita too? Major bummer if that’s not happening any more. Sorry, but Remote Play doesn’t count.

This and Resogun were the PS4 highlights for us at PAX. People keep mentioning Noby Noby Boy, but I saw it saw more like Locoroco meets old school adventure game. The music was cool; I hope the PS4 and Vita versions have HD audio assets.

Knack’s gameplay was okay, but visually it seemed to lack GI, and just generally looked bland. Blacklight had weird aliasing and shimmer, especially on thing in mid-distance from the camera.
