Tenya Wanya Teens is Katamari Creator’s Crazy New Game

Posted on March 20, 2013 AT 12:27pm

Katamari Damacy creator Keita Takahashi and IGF chairman Brandon Boyer are set to debut their new game, Tenya Wanya Teens, at GDC next week.

According to a post on Boyer’s blog, Tenya Wanya Teens is “a game about trying desperately to not say or do the wrong thing at the wrong time – that universal struggle to maintain the façade of normality during the awkward transition from child- to adulthood.” It’s also “a coming-of-age tale about love, hygiene, monsters and finding discarded erotic magazines in the woods.”


The title is a two-player party game played with 16-button custom arcade sticks. Prototypes of the arcade stick can be seen in the photo below.

Tenya Wanya Teens‘ will be scored by Takahash’s wife, former Namco composer Asuka Sakai.
