Hohokum tells the tale of a multicoloured serpent setting out to find his friends. After a brief gathering with them in your home (hub) world, they all disappear and it is up to you to explore the various interconnected worlds to find them. Basically it’s a wonderfully colourful game of hide and go seek with your serpentine friends across a multitude of fascinating and intriguing 2-D planes.
There isn’t much of a story set up or premise to compel the player to find their friends, the compulsion, however, comes from the adventurous nature of the gamer as they explore and immerse themselves in the artistically constructed world.
I was instantly mesmerised by this games artistic brilliance. It is such a simple design and concept but it is pulled off perfectly. The vibrant colours pop out at you from all spectres of the rainbow. The various worlds are bursting at the seems with their own unique charm and individuality. Underwater themed worlds where you interact with the fish is just one of my favourites along with others such as a brief space adventure as you explore the stars.
