We’re really excited to unveil a new place in Hohokum today — the Guano Factory — with a new teaser trailer made by Scott Benson, and backed by one of our favorite Matthew Dear songs: Temptation. Matthew Dear is a founding artist of Ghostly International, and is also a DJ, dance-music producer, and an experimental pop artist. The Temptation track is off his latest album, Beams — a suite of weird, wild, and optimistic rhythm-driven pop. The perfect type of music for Hohokum.
In our first trailer, we glimpsed lots of places in Hohokum, and showed some gameplay, but this time around we wanted to try something different: focusing right down on a single part of the game — and the characters and action that happens there — and making something that feels more like a music video than a gameplay trailer.
Not every place in Hohokum is a peaceful place. For example, this factory is a noisy, dirty place, full of pipes and strange machines and bad smells. What are they doing here? What is that gloopy yellow stuff? What are they making with it? We’ll leave that for you to figure out for yourself.
We’re going to be showing a version of Hohokum with the Guano Factory playable at various places over the next few months:
- Tokyo Game Show: 19-22 September
- Fantastic Fest Arcade: 19-22 September
- Indiecade: 3-6 October
Stay tuned to the PlayStation Blog for more info on Hohokum in the coming months!
