Hohokum preview: a whimsical playground for PS3, PS4, and Vita

Perhaps no game better exemplifies Sony's current indie-friendly cross-platform approach than Hohokum. The upcoming PS3, PS4, and Vita game takes a decidedly different approach, with playful vector-like graphics, an indie-artist collaborative soundtrack, and non-penalizing gameplay--inviting you to relax and explore in a whimsical playground.

Opening in a peaceful world of blue skies and floating islands, you control a colorful, snake-like being with the left analog stick by moving or "wiggling" it, with the X and O buttons to speed up or slow down. A little blue penguin-like creature surfs on the creature's back. While passing curly trees, bouncy green flowers, and mole-hill like homes, I notice the light bar on the PS4 controller changes color with each directional change.
