Rising Star & Delve Interactive to Release Platformer Poncho

Continuing its efforts to work with the best indie developers, Rising Star Games has partnered with UK developer, Delve Interactive to add PONCHO to its ever-growing stable of great indie games. Playable by the public for the first time at the recent EGX REZZED 2015 show, this partnership will see the multi-layered 2D platform-adventure come to a host of formats later this year.

A fascinating pixel platformer, PONCHO tells the story of a robot who awakes to discover a post-apocalyptic world where humanity has totally disappeared. What happened within the ruins of the past is a mystery, although glimpses of the truth peek through the unchallenged growth of nature. It is up to players to help the poncho-wearing mechanical hero find his maker, work out what happened and ultimately try to restore humanity.

“When we are looking for games to publish we are always on the hunt for something special,” said Martin Defries, managing director of Rising Star Games. “Poncho is special. It was love at first sight. It is a game that has thrilled us since we started playing early versions and has continued to do so throughout its development. The team at Delve have created a new hero and an amazing game. We feel special now being part of PONCHO’s world.”

“We always wanted to bring PONCHO to the widest possible gaming audience,” said Danny Hayes, co-creator of Poncho. “Partnering with the team at Rising Star Games has meant that we can now do that. We have embraced their passion and know-how with our creativity. PONCHO is a new kind of pixel super hero that we hope you will all love.”

PONCHO‘s open world 2D adventuring offers a unique twist: players can shift at will between three layers of depth, creating all kinds of puzzles and challenges to overcome. Packed with charming personality and interesting characters, players will want to lead Poncho through an enchanting tale of hope, determination and the discovery of who you really are…
