For a number of reasons, that I will explain below, we have decided to postpone Tengami’s PC/Mac release date to January 15th, 2015. Everyone who pre-ordered the game will still receive a Steam key within the next few days.
If you would like to get your hands on the game early email me.
As you probably know the game is finished. But unfortunately November and December, happen to be, some of the busiest months for gaming releases. With Christmas coming up, a lot of big titles are being released and most of the big publishers are fighting over the ‘big Christmas business’. This also means that the gaming press is very busy with covering these big releases. We worry releasing Tengami into this situation, will result in greatly decreased attention by press and players alike. Visibility is nowadays one of the key factors for a game’s success on any platform and frankly we don’t think that we will be able to create enough awareness for the game’s launch during the ‘festive’ season.
In a little less than two weeks time Tengami is going to be officially released on Steam. Everyone who pre-ordered the game can already play it, by downloading it from the Humble Store.
I am very happy to finally be delivering the game to you, considering that some of you have supported us for such a long time. Thank you very much for your patience and continued support on our Tengami journey.

Tengami will officially be releases on Steam, November 28th. You will receive your Steam key shortly before that date in a separate email. Feel free to resell your key or share it with friends and family. The Steam version supports Achievements and Cloud Saves.
In a few hours Tengami will be available throughout Europe, the Americas, Australia and New Zealand on the Nintendo eShop for Wii U. It will also have its own Miiverse community, that I will be visiting regularly in case you got any questions about the game.
I have an official developer account. Here is a link to my profile. Hope many of you will use the beautiful Miiverse stamps we created.
In the meantime there is not much to be done, but have a look at Tengami’s Wii U launch trailer.
If you per-ordered the desktop version then keep an eye on your inbox. We will send out download links for the PC&MAC version as soon it is live on the Humble backend.
All around good news for everyone waiting for the Wii U and desktop versions.
After being in Wii U certification for quite some time, Tengami finally got Nintendo’s seal of approval and will be released on November 13th, 2014 on the Wii U eShop. Initially it will be releases in the Americas, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Japan will get the game at a later date, because non Japanese companies cannot self-publish on the Japanese eShop.
In Europe the game page is already live on the eShop, so go ahead and add it to your wishlist. Tengami will sell for 9.99 US-$ / 7.99 EUR / 6.99 £ and equivalent. The download size is 369 MB. We added Miiverse support, as well as collectible stamps to the game. I hope to see you in Tengami’s Miiverse once it goes live and please make plenty of use of the 10 beautiful stamps. They were created by the amazing concept artist Daz Watford. Take a look at his other work on his website.
Everyone who pre-ordered the desktop version will get the game on the same day as the Wii U version delivered through Humble. We will send out emails with download instructions on November 13th. The official desktop launch date will be about 2 weeks after. You will get your Steam keys shortly before the official launch.
We are showing Tengami at Gamescom in Colgone/Germany all week. Visit us in hall 10.1 and play Tengami on iOS or the Wii U. Or you could just say “hi” and pick up a beautiful Tengami badge, while they last. Hope to see you at Gamescom!
