Katamari Damacy creator Keita Takahashi’s Wattam is no longer an Epic Games Store exclusive on PCs. Funomena’s weird yet wonderful friend-making game is now slated to come to Steam on December 18th, just over a year after its EGS debut.

The premise remains as charming (if oddball) as ever. You play the Mayor as you aim to befriend over 100 characters like noses, phones and toilets. The variety extends to the gameplay — you’ll do everything from dancing to exploding. A drop-in, drop-out co-op mode lets you share the experience with others whenever you’d like.

Wattam may no longer be the freshest game at this point, but it’s worth considering if you’re a fan of Takahashi’s work. The Steam release is arguably timely — it’s a burst of optimism and connectedness during a pandemic when many people are looking for something to boost their moods.
