The 2D open-world puzzler needs $30,000 to achieve a Vita and PS4 release.
Delve Interactive has added a stretch goal to its Kickstarter which could potentially bring the puzzler to the PS Vita. At the time of writing, the project is well below its target goal of $22,500, currently standing at $5,362 with 292 backers. With only five days to go, it seems that a late flurry of interest from Sony device owners could be the answer for Poncho to reach it’s required funding amount.
So, what exactly is Poncho?
Poncho is a small robot, who wakes up in a post apocalyptic world, where Earth is populated completely by robots after their human creators became extinct centuries before. The game centres around Poncho searching for his makers, and in the process deciding the fate of mankind. In an interesting twist, the robots have created tribes and communities of their own as they attempt to survive as the new found dominant species on the planet. The game will provide plenty of twists and turns, with a host of difficult choices to make. It’s all about exploring every nook and cranny to discovering every detail about the world and its history.
Although the developer describes Poncho as “Nothing seen before”, the puzzler genre on Vita is extremely crowded with already established titles leading the market. Games such as Limbo, Machinarium and even Fez all fit into the same genre, and if it does successfully fund, it will be interesting to see how Delve Interactive attempts to make their creation stand out from the crowd.
The project does look interesting however, and needs your support. You can help them fund by visiting their Kickstarter page here.
