From Keita Takahashi, the mind behind the Katamari Damacy franchise, comes a brand new title described as "a game about the joys of friendship and discovery." Wattam, which initially released for PlayStation 4 in December 2019, has officially been announced to come to PC via Steam on December 18, 2020.
Wattam takes place in a world inhabited by anthropomorphic objects including (but not limited to) trees, rocks, flowers, mouth, noses, and even poop. The player's goal is to travel around the world befriending each of these creatures in order to unlock special abilities via holding hands and playing music together. These abilities are then used to complete puzzles and mini-games and even discover the secrets behind this strange and colorful world. There are over 100 unique characters for you to meet and befriend on your journey.
The Steam page for Wattam describes the game as "the ultimate goof-off simulator" and "a dreamlike sandbox experience." According to the official Steam press release, the game has been in development since 2015, and is a major passion project for Takahashi.
Wattam offers options for both solo and co-op play. One highlighted feature is the ability to switch between solo and multiplayer modes at any time, so you can grab a friend to help if you are stuck on a puzzle or simply want a companion on your adventure.

If you just can't wait for your next dose of Takahashi, Katamari Damacy Reroll - a remake of the first Katamari title on PlayStation 2 - is currently available for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. It was released a year before Wattam, in December 2018.
