Hob Mood Trailer


So last week, we told you that we're going to be at PAX East, showing a brand new demo of Hob. Now we'd like to tell you how you can join us there! If you like PAX and you like coloring books, then this is the contest for you. Here's how to enter:

  • Download the Hob coloring book here.
  • Fill the images with color. Print them out and color them with crayons. Open them up on your favorite image editor and paint them. It's up to you.
  • Do one page or do them all. Enter as often as you like.
  • Post your entries as replies to our reddit thread in /r/pax.

We are accepting entries until 2pm PST on Tuesday, Feb 21, 2017. Winners will be announced based on our selection within a day or so after the contest closes in the reddit thread. Transportation and lodgings not included. Good luck!

In the weeks leading up to PAX East, we will be sharing more about the world of Hob with you. In this brand new trailer, we showcase some of the environments we've seen so far as you've never seen them before. The quiet world of mystery is waiting for you – has waited for you – a solitary hero.

Hob invites you to explore its lush landscapes, abandoned ruins, and brooding mechanical dungeons. We recommend headphones for the full journey, and to better enjoy the atmospheric soundtrack by Matt Uelmen. Let us know what you think!

Q: What's better than going to PAX East in Boston, March 10-12, 2017?

A: Going to PAX East in Boston with a brand new demo of Hob!

That's right! Come see us at booth 18120 for more mystery, more adventure, more puzzles, and more weird creatures that may or may not try to eat you.

This year we asked ourselves, what's the most fun thing about PAX? Then we smacked ourselves on the forehead, because, duh, it's playing games. So we asked ourselves what the second most fun thing about PAX is. Clearly it's all the people who come to see us and play Hob. Your excitement and energy are better than any of the other drugs we've taken so far. Okay, but the third most fun thing about PAX is…cosplay!

We love seeing the incredible work of cosplayers at PAX and we're honored that so many people have asked us about Hob cosplay. So, without further ado, we're pleased to present the first ever Runic Games cosplay guide featuring the hero of Hob:

But wait, there's more! We are lucky enough to have the very talented @tavinnea (Twitch) (Beam) joining us in Boston to show off her handiwork. Have a look at her Twitch stream for a sneak peek at how she put her Hob hero together.

And, since PAX would be nothing without all of you, we’ll be running another contest for tickets this year. Tune in next week to find out how you can win!
