is a party game coming to PC via
consoles in June. This allows up to four players in local multiplayer, and will
hopefully support Steam's Steam Remote Play Together feature for your social
distancing needs. This was named best console game at the
Game Connection Europe 2019 - Indie Development Awards
and was also a Jury's
honorable mention. Here's the
here's word on the game, where you won't be able to make an omelet without
breaking a few eggs:
Inspired by party classics like Bomberman, Ponpu is a
competitive arcade maze game. Four diabolical ducks go in, but only one comes
out on top of a mountain of explosive eggs. Ponpu updates the classic formula
for the modern age with quick dodges, shields and parries, raising the stakes
and giving skilled players a chance to really flex on their foes. Players can
also use a variety of special egg-based abilities, including hidden mines,
freezing eggs, control-scrambling poison bombs and more.
Players can compete against each other locally across three wildly different
modes. Free-For-All is classic combat, last duck standing. Coin Collector has
players beating cash out of each other, with the crown going to the most moneyed
mallard. Paint The Map (inspired by Splatoon) has players rushing to spread
their colors far and wide before the last bell rings.
As well as the trio of multiplayer modes for local multiplayer (which can also
be played versus AI), Ponpu also boasts a huge single-player mode. Battle
against the minions of the all-powerful and destructive Duck God. Bomb your way
across ten worlds full of monsters, and defeat a swarm of weird and wacky bosses
in your quest to save the universe from going to hell in an egg-basket.
