Welcome, ladygeeks and gentlenerds, to the new era of gaming. The one where you get to watch, and comment, as other people livestream gameplay from next-gen consoles. Because games! They're fun!

One of the biggest ways that Sony is differentiating the PlayStation 4 from the Xbox One is a strong reliance on quirky indie titles. It seems like for every blockbuster franchise like God of War and Uncharted there's a flOw or Sound Shapes that challenges what we expect from a video game. Hohokum isn't any different. In fact, it almost feels a little bit like the lovechild of the aforementioned titles: you guide a tadpole-like object around an abstract world similar to flOw, and nearly everything you touch adds another layer to the song playing in the background a la Sound Shapes. It's an incredibly relaxed game where it's easy to lose track of just how long you've ben playing as you explore each interconnected arty world. Words have a hard time doing it justice, which is why I'm streaming it just for you from the PS4 starting at 7 p.m. Eastern / 4 p.m. Pacific. Even better? You'll have a chance to win a download code or three for the game during the broadcast.
