It's been a long time coming, but the beautiful pop-up book adventure game Tengami is finally finished and will be launching this week. Developer Nyamyam had already been hard at work on Tengami for quite some time when we first posted about it in August of 2012, and they were almost positive the game would release before the end of 2013 when they posted an update to their blog a year later. However, this past December Nyamyam had to make the tough decision to delay Tangemi into early 2014 to ensure it met their high standards. Hey, with a game as awesome looking as Tengami, I'd rather they didn't rush it.

Tengami will launch as a Universal app at the $4.99 price point. It's scheduled for release this Thursday, which likely means it will "pop up" in the US App Store on Wednesday night around 11pm EST along with the rest of the week's scheduled releases. We really can't wait to dive into the finished product, so get your adventure hat on and drop by the discussion thread in our forums as we await the arrival of Tengami later this week.

    • xx99

      Yeah! High quality pop-up books (e.g., Sabuda's) normally retail for $30!

      Seriously though, the pop-up book is just the theme here. There are game mechanics mixed in to.

    Can't wait for this... It looks incredible. I'm a huge fan of games that try something new for presentation and style.

    I guess this means I'd better free up some memory on the old iPad!

    Will this still play as good if i don't dreamily walk through a jungle and sit in the shade of a big ass tree to play this?? I mean can i enjoy this without doing that... For gods sake i live in the city!!

    • mzinn

      Yes. Just go to settings & select City mode. You will be all set. Then when you find yourself under a tree switch back. :)
