Keita Takahashi’s Next Game Is A Heartfelt Tale About Being Stuck In A T-Pose

Suits them.

During this morning’s Annapurna Interactive Showcase, the publisher revealed the next game from Katamari Damacy creator Keita Takahashi’s studio, uvula, and it looks predictably quirky and charming.

Titled “to a T,” the game stars a teenager simply named Teen, who seemingly lives their life in a permanent T-pose. The game will be an episodic narrative adventure in which players guide Teen through school life and their unique situation with exploration, character interaction, mini-games and the discovery of some unique abilities.

Although Teen will face bullying and some hardship because of their condition in the game, uvula says it’s ultimately a “heartfelt” game designed to be enjoyed by everyone, and it’s partnered with charity organisation, AbleGamers, to ensure it’s approaching its core ideas with sensitivity and accessibility.

Take a look at the trailer for to a T below:

From the game’s Steam page description:

  • Episodic Story – Take part in a story that unfolds over multiple days while Teen finds a way to fit in, and discovers a new found sense of self.
  • Minigames – Control Teen in a variety of different scenarios that they encounter throughout their day. Maneuver Teen’s arm to reach for and interact with objects. Open Teen’s mouth to take a bite of food or a drink of water. From petting a dog, to eating breakfast, Teen can do a lot even if they have to do it in their own way.
  • Explore Town – Outside of the main story, collect coins, find a beautiful vista point, visit all the shops around town, or hunt for interesting characters around town to talk to in free mode.
  • Character Customization – Style Teen to your own liking. Purchase clothing from stores around town to expand your wardrobe and experiment with fun clothing combinations.
  • A very cute dog.
