Katamari Damacy creator Keita Takahashi teases new game for Annapurna
Katamari Damacy, Wattamand Noby Noby Boy Game designer Keita Takahashi and his “small game studio” Uvula are creating a new game for Lost and White neon publisher Annapurna Interactive. Uvula gave a first look at that new game, the untitled game yet announced, during Annapurna’s 2022 gameplay showcase, but revealed little about the project.
An overly short intro focuses on the vibrating sound of a young person snoring, who is awakened by a dog licking their face. The teaser trailer promises “much to come” but also looks frustrated with its own lack of information. Platform and release window not announced. Look, at this point, all you can really count on is a face-licking dog.
Uvula has had a small project page for a long time, only referring to it as “New Project” and including a picture of a teapot. Other Uvula projects include Crankin’s Time Travel Adventures Because Panic’s Playdate handheld, Alphabet for PC (available only as part of Awesome video game pack), and Tenya Wanya Teens, a game played using a custom 16-button controller. Takahashi also worked on Wattam and Woorld during his stay in Funomena.
