Hey folks! We’re back on PlayStation.Blog this week to unveil a new trailer for Fun Fair and chat with two of the musicians from Ghostly International who we’re collaborating with on the Hohokum soundtrack — super exciting stuff!
At last, we can reveal the Fun Fair to the world! It’s the level we’ve worked on the longest, and its roots can be traced all the way back to the first prototype of the game we showed back in 2011. Back then, it was a no-fun fair. It was a place of danger, a beautiful and colorful city, but one that was under attack from a mysterious enemy. Bombs rained down on the town and its peaceful citizens. Your job was to collect these hapless denizens and ferry them to an awaiting boat.
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.
And we’re back on a normal posting schedule! Today’s show features two can’t-miss interviews! First, a lengthy and thought-provoking chat with HoneySlug’s Ricky Haggett and artist Dick Hogg, creators of the whimsical (but also wistful) Hohokum.
