About The Game

A Platformer like nothing seen before in games, explore this open-world puzzler in multiple dimensions on a journey to find your maker.

Humanity has been extinct for centuries, leaving their robotic creations behind to fend for themselves. These robots have formed tribes and communities of their own, trying to make a way of life without purpose now their masters are gone.

On your journey, you will have to make some hard choices and ultimately decide the fate of humankind. With multiple areas and paths to explore, you'll never be able to see everything in a single play through. Poncho is about making you feel like a kid again, exploring outside and looking under rocks to see what you find. There's treasure in every nook and cranny in this world, and nothing is quite as it seems. There's always more than one way to accomplish your goals.

  • Explore this 2D world by moving in 3D parallax layers. A wall is blocking your path? You can go in front it. There's treasure off in the background, far away In the distance? You can go there at the touch of a button. The world of Poncho has no limits on the Z plane.
  • There are no levels in Poncho. You wake up in the centre of the game, and choose to go any way you want. With no hand holding to tell you where to go, it's up to you to choose the right path. The Maker is out there somewhere.
  • Interact with every little creature. Every area is filled with randomly generated ecosystems of creatures, all co-existing and reacting to every movement Poncho makes.
