Make colourful blobs hold hands in bizarre puzzler Wattam, out next year

Wattam [official site] is a puzzler from the mind of Keita Takahashi, the chap behind Katamari Damacy, which was that very fun Playstation game where you rolled around making stuff stick to you. Wattam was first announced in 2014 but there's been radio silence for a while as the game hunted for a publisher after being dropped by Sony. Now, Annapurna Interactive (of the excellent What…
