Videogames have a long history of taking animals and turning them into beloved game characters from Sonic the Hedgehog to Crash Bandicoot. Developer Sumo Digital aims to slither their way into gamers’ homes and find a place alongside those names with Noodle the snake.
Noodle is the protagonist of Snake Pass. Described as a “snake psychics” puzzle platformer, players must control Noodle as he navigates a colorful world filled with a variety of obstacles. Snake Pass arrives early next year for PlayStation 4 and Sumo Digital will be bringing the game to PlayStation Experience next month.
A never before seen level will make its debut at the the event and speed run competitions will take place, with winners claiming Snake Pass swag. Check out the PlayStation Experience PS4 Trailer for the game below.

I grew up playing colorful platformers with animal characters, but they have largely disappeared from the gaming landscape minus a few exceptions. It’s good to see them return next year with Yooka-Laylee and the truly unique looking Snake Pass.
