“It’s not everyday that I come across a game that is completely unique, and “wow” inducing. At GDC, I got to see Tengami in action, and it looks like an iOS experience not to be missed.” via Apple’N’Apps
“Tengami is beautiful. It’s moody and subtle, and felt like the kind of peaceful, quiet game that invites introspection…” via TUAW
“It’s impossible to describe the freedom of experimenting with this unique blend of two and three dimensions, and the joy of watching the world literally unfold before your eyes.” Via Modojo
“By the time Tengami hits the App Store on your iPad it’ll be an absolutely irresistible title that I command you to pick up and play! Whilst my hands on at the fantastic, yet somewhat hidden, booth at Rezzed was short, it was brilliantly sweet and I really can’t wait to get a chance to delve back into that wonderful pop-up papercraft world.” Via TheGamersHub
“As I finished the Demo of Tengami, it took me a moment to realise that I was not actually in the Japan of ancient dark fairy tales. It took me a moment longer to realise that I had never played an immersive game on the iPad until now. This will be my game, the one I play when the house is sleeping and I have time to believe in magic and enchanted fairy tales.” Via Dual Ring
