Ooblets trailer shows off exploration, dancing and fashionable poop hair

Since the beginning (opens in new tab), Ooblets has been all about adorable Pokemon-esque creatures, and also dancing. The trailer above, which debuted at this year's PC Gaming Show, stars both of those things, but it also gives us a look at parts of the game we haven't seen much of before. Inspired by life sims like Harvest Moon and Animal Crossing, Ooblets will let you customize your character and deck out your own house. Crucially, you can have hair that looks like a poop emoji (or soft serve ice cream, but let us live this dream for a moment).

Naturally, you can fill your house with furniture (and color coordinate) and then dance in it. Or you can dance in your pajamas, outside, in the snow. In the world of Ooblets, dancing, it seems, is encouraged anytime, anywhere.

Wes has been covering games and hardware for more than 10 years, first at tech sites like The Wirecutter (opens in new tab) and Tested (opens in new tab) before joining the PC Gamer team in 2014. Wes plays a little bit of everything, but he'll always jump at the chance to cover emulation and Japanese games.


When he's not obsessively optimizing and re-optimizing a tangle of conveyor belts in Satisfactory (it's really becoming a problem), he's probably playing a 20-year-old Final Fantasy or some opaque ASCII roguelike. With a focus on writing and editing features, he seeks out personal stories and in-depth histories from the corners of PC gaming and its niche communities. 50% pizza by volume (deep dish, to be specific).
