On the Hokko Life website, there’s a section called Hokko Designer that offers a fun Hokko Life-related app. The Hokko Designer app is a free, standalone app where you can design your very own t-shirt for use in Hokko Life. You can also preview that t-shirt design on two of the game’s adorable villagers.

What’s particularly exciting about the Hokko Designer app is that you will be able to transfer your t-shirt into Hokko Life following the game’s release. To start designing your in-game shirt, you’ll want to visit the Hokko Designer section of the Hokko Life website and follow the download instructions.

Essentially, you'll need to download the .zip file, extract it, make a copy of the Template image file, then copy it into your preferred painting application. It’s a bit of a process, but once you get everything downloaded and start painting your shirt, it can be a fun way to get a bit of an early start in Hokko Life.

After checking out the Hokko Designer app, we’re curious to hear your thoughts. Will you design a shirt for use in your Hokko Life game, are you waiting to learn more about what sort of gameplay Hokko Life will offer? Comment below!
