Hob, the third title from developer Runic Games, is a suspenseful adventure that takes place without text or dialog. The narrative unfolds as you interact with the game’s environment and discover the mystery, beauty and danger that reside there.

The world in which you find yourself exists on a planet in peril. It buzzes with life on the surface, beneath which mysterious machinery whirs.

Can this world be mended, or will it continue to fall into chaos?

Hob will be released on PS4 and PC/Windows at a date TBD.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
