Set to release August 12th, 2014, Hohokum is a video game created by Honeyslug in collaboration with Richard Hogg for PlayStation®4 PlayStation®3, and PlayStation® Vita systems. The player is a serpent creature called the "Long Mover" who navigates through various exciting and colorful worlds. Each world contains specific characters, a single primary goal, and secondary activities. Developer Richard Hogg has said that the game is about "relaxing in a space and just enjoying the experience and the music, instead of trying to complete it to make progress." http://hohokum.playstation.com
