Tengami, a beautifully animated pop-up book/video game puzzler by Nyamyam won’t be coming out this month as we’d all hoped and has been delayed. Never fear though, Nyamyam say that it “is definitely coming out this year”.
Tengami is a gorgeous story puzzler animated in the style of a pop-up book. It had always been tagged with “Summer 2013” release window with some publications hearing that it was tied to an August release but developers Nyamyam wrote on their site today that it’s been delayed.
The post on Nyamyam’s site reads:
Here is an update on our release plans. In some interviews earlier this year I said that we were hoping to release Tengami this August and we stated on the website for a long time that a release is planned for the summer. While Tengami is definitely coming out this year we still have a fair amount of work to do and therefore we won’t be releasing this summer. We are sorry for making you wait so long, but we have spent almost 3 years on Tengami now and want to keep working on it until we feel it is ready.
I’ve been lucky enough to play the iOS version and I have to say, it’s probably one of the most relaxing and beautifully animated puzzle games I’ve seen for a long, long time. It takes you back to the times where we all thought pop-up books were awesome. The game features some wonderful art and level design which makes you forget for a second that you’re poking at a screen on a tablet.
