Hob, an Unusual Fantasy Adventure From Runic Games – December 24, 2015 

The story of Hob is told exclusively through exploration and unfolds as you interact with the environment. There is no dialog.

You play a mysterious character who awakens on a strange planet. It will be up to you to discover why you’re there and what you’re supposed to do.

The game takes place in a drastically changing open world. It’s a world in chaos. The landscape can literally shift beneath you.

Hob takes inspiraton from such games as Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. It’s meant to convey a sense of wonder and mystery in the midst of combat and puzzle-solving. Gameplay includes platforming.

The game is currently available for pre-order on Steam (Windows) and the Playstation Store (PS4) at a 10% discount. It will be released on both platforms September 26th.

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.
