Unfold a World of Paper in Tengami

Japanese-styled paper-folding zen title Tengami arrives on iOS

Developed by Nyamyam, a small indie studio comprised of ex-Rare employees, Tengami is an atmospheric adventure game set inside the world of a Japanese pop-up book, encapsulating the feel of ancient dark fairy tales from the region.

Comprised of 133 authentically folding pop-ups – all of which could be built in real life with just paper and glue – you’ll take on the role of a lone wanderer, unfolding, pulling, flipping, and sliding secrets out from around this papery world. We’ve had hands on with it a couple of times now, once at Rezzed in 2012 and again in 2013 where we interviewed Nyamyam’s Phil Tossell, and we have to say that it has certainly been shaping up nicely.

And we’re clearly not the only ones to think that as Tengami has been nominated for various awards during its development.

The beauty of Tengami’s papery world comes from a proprietary pop-up engine known as the Paper Kit, a first of its kind technology that allows for the creation of digital pop-ups. It’s also been paired with a visual effects tool known as Bishamon – developed by Japanese developer Matchlock – and features the music of David Wise, who composed Donkey Kong Country and most recently Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze. So, plenty of talent on board there then.

Tengami releases today on iOS7 and supports iPhone 4 and newer, iPad 2 and newer, and 5th generation iPod Touch. It’s also planned for release on Wii U, OS X and Windows later this year.

You can purchase Tengami now from the App Store for just $4.99/ £2.99/€4.49/¥500.
