All the hub-bub is about Hob.
Runic Games announced its next project today, Hob, which is for PC and consoles. Hob is a text-less, dialogue-less adventure game.
“Hob is set on a beautiful and dangerous unknown world, with buzzing life above and the whirrs of mysterious machinery below,” Runic Games noted in a press release sent to GamesBeat. “The more players delve into the world’s design, the more they uncover a planet in peril. Players must learn to survive, understand their true purpose through acquiring skills, and ultimately transform the nature of the world itself.”
Runic Games is best known for the Torchlight series of action role-playing games on PC and consoles. Its last game, Torchlight II, came out in 2012. Hob will be playable to attendees at the PAX Prime convention in Seattle, which runs from August 28 through August 31. It currently has no release date.
