Rising Star Games are proud to announce that they have launched Poncho, an exciting new pixel art platformer for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, PC, Mac and Linux for £10.99.
Poncho will also be released on PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system and Nintendo Wii U in the coming months.
A robot finds himself waking with no memory in a strange and desolate world, with nothing on his person but a strange and ancient artifact from a bygone era – a red poncho. The little red Poncho quickly becomes his namesake and our robot hero goes on a journey to discover what tragedy has befallen the world around him.
As Poncho, players can explore a beautifully animated pixel-drawn open world. Harness Poncho’s unique powers of depth, by hopping between the background, mid-ground and foreground in a giddy and unique blend of parallax platforming action. Use these abilities to effortlessly explore and solve puzzles as you jump between planes whilst traversing Poncho’s mysterious and immersive world.
“I’m so excited to finally be releasing PONCHO out into the world.” said Jack Odell, composer and co-creator of Poncho. “This project has meant a lot to myself and Dan over the past 3 years and the soundtrack has been some of my favourite work to date. We really hope that people enjoy it as much as we loved making it!”
