Runic Games, the developers behind Torchlight and Torchlight II, has announced a new project called Hob, a new IP for PC and consoles.

Hob is a puzzle-adventure game set on a mysterious planet, where players will have to solve the mysteries that surround it. Below you can read the official description:

Hob is set on a beautiful and dangerous unknown world, with buzzing life above and the whirrs of mysterious machinery below. 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.

Hob is presented without text or dialogue. Narrative is revealed as players explore and interact with their mysterious planet, and the strange life forms that inhabit it. Hob features smooth controller gameplay, multi-layered puzzles, and striking visuals.

To learn more about Hob, you can visit the official website or, if you're attending PAX Prime in Seattle, from August 28 to August 31, you can see the game in action at booth #6602. At the moment Runic Games has only announced the platforms on which we'll see the game, but a launch window has yet to be confirmed.
