    It lends itself well to a pair of headphones and a complete disconnect from your expectations of what the artform – and yes, it is an artform – can bring to the table.

    With a perfect match of audio and visual, Hohokum is a beautiful game oozing charm and charisma.

    Authentic, visually stunning and with one of the best soundtracks of the year, Hohokum is definitely a surprise. It's a shame that below that colorful surface, lays a dull game with confusing elements that undermine an otherwise great experience.

    Hohokum tries to be all things to all gamers, attempting to fit inside both the ‘game’ camp and the interactive art collective. That it succeeds, somewhat, is a compliment to the developers and the artist, but this attempt is also what holds Hohokum back from real greatness in either distinction.

    Hohokum's quirky, dreamy landscapes beg to be explored, but its abrasive and often aggrivating design keeps the player at arm's length.

    Hohokum offers more than you'd expect but less than you'd want; without gameplay depth to back up its visuals, it sparks the imagination but doesn't kindle it.

The game looks and sounds awesome, but the gameplay is non existant. This is of course the goal here, but the sense of doing nothing is frustrating to me. You're supposed to do stuff, but since it's unclear it gets annoying. As a result, I'm not calm when playing this game but quite irritated after ~10 minutes of patiently looking for what the hell I'm supposed to do. Expand
