Hello, Katamari Damacy is greater than 15 years outdated now, and meaning you might be hella outdated.
This episode introduced two rival faculties of Retronauts collectively, as a result of the one factor that unites each East and West Retronauts is a love of Katamari Damacy. Keita Takahashi’s quirky little garbage-collecting sim not too long ago noticed a reissue on Nintendo Change and Steam, reminding us how a lot we love this unusual little recreation. What we additionally realized whereas recording this episode is that Katamari was a pioneer in normalizing quirkiness. On the time of its debut, it was so bizarre to everybody… and now its whimsical textual content and stylized artwork are just about par for the course.
That does not diminish Katamari within the least, although. It merely makes all these different video games which have adopted in its footsteps higher.
Particular due to Cassie Hart Kelly for her glorious cowl artwork. Assist her work!
