Keita Takahashi, the man behind cult franchise Katamari Damacy, has unveiled his latest title. And yes, it’s very odd.
The game is called Tenya Wanya Teens and is being made in collaboration with his wife Asuka Sakai, UK studio Wild Rumpus and indie game site Venus Patrol.
Furthermore, it uses two large 16-button controllers, the final designs of which are expected to be unveiled at GDC next week.
Venus Patrol describes the game as follows: “It’s a coming-of-age tale about love, hygiene, monsters and finding discarded erotic magazines in the woods. It’s a game about trying desperately to not say or do the wrong thing at the wrong time — that universal struggle to maintain the façade of normality during the awkward transition from child- to adulthood.
“But, more than anything, really, it’s a silly party game for two players armed with sixteen buttons each.”
