Hob

An arcade adventure game developed by Runic Games, an American studio behind the Torchlight series. In Hob, we assume the role of a hero who wakes up in a beautiful but dangerous world on the verge of annihilation. The protagonist does not remember how he came to be in that place, and he will learn the answers for his questions only as the story progresses. What’s interesting, the production does not feature any text or dialogues, which gives a lot of room for interpretation. The core of the platformer gameplay is exploration of the open world and interacting with both encountered creatures and the planet itself, including solving logic puzzles. The items we find and the protagonist’s skills that are discovered in the course of the game prove to be helpful in a dangerous and constantly changing environment. Thanks to them, we can reach previously inaccessible places. Hob features original cel-shading graphics.

Hob is an arcade adventure game for PlayStation 4 developed by Runic Games. The studio is known primarily for the critically acclaimed Torchlight hack Ďní slash game series.

Plot

In the game, we assume the role of a hero who wakes up in a beautiful but dangerous world, which stands on the verge of annihilation. The protagonist does not remember how he came to be in that place and will learn the answers for his questions only as the story will unfold. Whatís interesting, the production does not feature any text or dialogues which gives the playersí imagination a lot of room to do its magic.

Mechanics

The gameplay takes place in an open world that can be freely traversed. At the same time, the mechanics somewhat resemble solutions from typical platformer games. The core of the gameplay is exploration and interaction with the encountered lifeforms and the planet itself. There is no shortage of traps that wait for the protagonist as well as quite numerous logic puzzles to solve. The key to success in the game is to discover how to survive in an alien and hostile environment that constantly changes. The items we find and the protagonistís skills we discover will prove useful and let us access previously inaccessible places as well as to take control over nature to shape it to our liking.

Technical aspects

Hob for PlayStation 4 is characterized by original and slightly artistic graphics, partially done in the cel-shading technique that simultaneously amazes with the beauty of the game world and intimidates with the amount of the danger that await the hero.
