Refreshingly light-hearted, brief, and full of good vibes, Wattam is the kind of game that everyone can easily settle down with.

Wattam is a rare wonder of a game, full of hope, charm, and poop. But it's also one of the kindest games to come out all year.

I'm not sure if Takahashi will ever be able to top Katamari Damacy – for my money, it's one of the greatest video games ever made – but Wattam captures that sense of whimsy and magic in its own way. The care-free music and gosh-darn-huggable character designs make this a must-play for fans.

Wattam is a weird and wild fever dream of a game, but it's the most enjoyable fever dream I've ever had.

Some significant technical issues manage to do little to hold back the charm and wit of Wattam. It's a game that's great fun for both kids and adults, with slapstick humor and a sweet message of understanding people, despite your differences, at its center. It's made with today's toxic climate in mind, boiling the world's issues into something that doesn't feel cloying, but instead feels positive and welcoming. That, to me, is an achievement.

Completely mental, colourful, funny and an entertaining multiplayer experience, Wattam constantly surprised me with its surreal characters and insane gameplay. It will not be everyone's cup of tea but I think a lot of people will appreciate it for what it is. A bright, cheery experience that will leave you confused, baffled but smiling and laughing at the same time.

Wattam is a fun and exciting game that you can and should play with your children. An unusual experiment, where the silly and almost always funny scenes hide a deep meaning about the unification of the world, universal friendship and the search for compromises between so different inhabitants, where joy and fun can connect the planet after a global catastrophe. And the best and so clear to all ages and religions of the game manifesto about peace and love is now difficult to find.

Wattam communicates a poignant, refreshing, and all-too-necessary joy in the face of adversity.
