Hob, a single-player action-adventure game, released on the PC and PS4
Runic Games, Inc. (“Runic Games”), a specialized developer of PC and console entertainment software in the United States, launched Hob, their third title after the Torchlight series.
Hob, a single-player action-adventure game set amidst the ruins of a missing civilization, released on the PC and PS4 for $19.99. Fans of the atmospheric music can purchase the original soundtrack by Matt Uelmen on Bandcamp or on Steam as DLC.
“We are thrilled to release Hob,” said Runic President Marsh Lefler. “It allows us to show our range as a studio, and bring something truly unique to the puzzle-platformer genre. Our entire team worked tirelessly on this game, especially over the last couple of months, and we are so incredibly excited to share Hob with all our fans. We love you guys, and cannot wait to hear how you’re enjoying the game!”
Over the past four days, Runic Games also released Hob: Prelude, a webcomic that serves as a prologue to the game.
Game Informer calls Hob, “…a believable, breathing place of mystery,” and PC Gamer wrote, “Hob proves Runic can do puzzles and atmosphere just as well as dungeon crawling.”
“Hob is a transformative adventure waiting to be uncovered,” said COO Allen Fong. “We are so proud of everything we were able to accomplish with this game.”
