Katamari Christmassy

A PICO8+Xmas homage to the Katamari series by Namco by Mathieu @p01 Henri and Matt @gasmanic Westcott

The King of All Cosmos was completely naughty. The stars are all gone and you, the 5cm Prince of All Cosmos, must fix this mess.

How to play

Walk forward with ⬆️, steer with ⬅️ and ➡️
Roll things up with your Katamari ball to build the biggest clump.

The King will make a star with it. If it is big enough.

Game modes

Switch between Story and Arcade mode in the Pause menu.

Rebuild the Christmas constellation in Story mode to make the King of All Cosmos proud.

Have fun in Arcade mode.

Accessibility and photo sensitivity

Some colors flicker at 60fps to make parts of the UI transparent or brighter. Unfortunately this can be quite disturbing for photo sensitive people.

The color flicker can be toggled in the Pause menu.


Code + Visuals: Mathieu @p01 Henri
Musics: Matt @gasmanic Westcott

very nice! great work. just like I remembered... great use of the distort fx to indicate incompatible roll items.

Managed to make a meager star. I guess I'm not very good at these action games.

Huge fan of that dither on the planet's atmosphere! Looks really nice. Fun game, too.

Thanks :)

Did you folks try in arcade mode and got the Bear stage, or the Cow stage ?

This was a fun, faithful (or, quite evocative, at least?) tribute… Really enjoyed!

A VERY good "Katamari" fan-game!

The King of All Cosmos, himself, would approve!

is there a way to save your game? Or am I more so expected to just knock out the story in one sitting? All fine either way, absolutely love the port. So much charm.
