Good day all!
Finally we get to make our big announcements! We have lots so show you, so, to kick things off, here is our new trailer for PONCHO!
Wasn’t that just lovely? Help us out and share the trailer far and wide! FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY, SHARE IT! ^-^
And now for item number 2, NEW PLATFORM!
Yes, Poncho will now be releasing on the Wii U as well as Steam, PS4 and PSVita.
However we did have to make a tradeoff, the OUYA. PONCHO is pretty demanding of memory and unfortunately the OUYA just doesn’t have enough power right now to run the game. If they ever update the hardware then we’ll look into pursuing it further!
We’re sorry to all our fans who wanted to play it on there, but chances are you own one of the other consoles we’re releasing on so, all is not lost!
Also I know a lot of you have been asking for a 3DS version, but as you can probably guess the porting process to that console is much more complicated than the others, so I think right now it’s something we’ll look into after the initial release, maybe as an enhanced deluxe version! Poncho on the 3DS is too perfect a match, and if we get enough attention at release we’ll go for it! 😀
Who saved us?!
That’s right, Rising Star Games, best known for titles such as Cloudbuilt, TRI: Of dreams and madness and Deadly Premonition, were the ones who saved Poncho in the end.
Working with them so far has been wonderful, they handle the business stuff, and we make the game with full control on development. It’s a great relationship, and one that never would have been formed without all your support! Although our kickstarter failed, over 400 backers is still an impressive number, and it shows publishers that people are at least interested in the game. Thank you, thank you, thank you for everything you guys have done for us!
Rezzed and Insomnia
We will be taking Poncho to REZZED and INSOMNIA! So you if you want to play our lovely new demo, come see us! We’ll be there too to shake your hand for your support. ^-^
Now about development…
Things have been going very well development wise, we’re almost at the part where we stop making new levels and we start porting and polishing. The Poncho release date is just on the horizon, and we’ll be announcing the official release date in the next few months!
This has been an incredible journey for us. 3 years now we’ve been making this thing, and we couldn’t be more proud of what we’ve accomplished. Again, thank you to all our backers for everything you’ve done for us, we wouldn’t be where we are without you.
That’s all for now, I hope you liked the trailer, for more updates on a daily basis, follow us on FACEBOOK and TWITTER!
From all of us at Delve Interactive, farewell for now, but we’ll have more goodies for you all soon. ^-^
