Katamari Damacy at Eeyore's Birthday Party, 2009
Katamari Damacy took a break from his mission to rebuild the stars, constellations and Moon to drop into Eeyore's Birthday Party in Austin, Texas, April 25, 2009. Eeyore's Birthday Party is an annual Rite of Spring party in Austin.
Katamari Damacy is a third-person puzzle-action video game that deals with the aftereffects of the planet-sized King of All Cosmos' binge drinking spree that wiped out all the stars and other celestial bodies from the sky. The King charges his son, the Prince, to go to Earth with a "katamari"—a magical ball that allows anything smaller than it to stick to it and make it grow—and collect enough material for him to recreate the stars and constellations. The Prince is successful, and the sky is returned to normal.
