Zordix Publishing, a part of Zordix AB (publ), today signed a publishing deal with the Argentinian game studio Purple Tree Studio™. The contract concerns the title “Ponpu”, and gives Zordix the exclusive rights to publish the game globally. Inspired by the classic gameplay from Bomberman, Ponpu is a fresh take on the concept, with added mechanics to take the frantic gameplay to a whole new level.

Check out some early footage here:

The game was recently awarded both “Best Console Game” as well as “The Jury’s Honorary Mention” at Game Connection Indie Development Awards during Paris Games Week. Ponpu is under development for all major gaming platforms including Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC. We can now reveal that the game is set for release in Q2 2020.

“We’re beyond excited to get to publish Ponpu. It’s the kind of game where 1 match easily turns into 20, and we couldn’t be happier that Purple Tree Studio has entrusted us to help them launch this title to the global gaming audiences” - Axel Danielsson, Head of Publishing, Zordix.

“We are super excited to work with Zordix on Ponpu. They’re a perfect match to the game and Zordix is a company that has been growing for years with talented people. Together we will make an amazing, fun and weird game that will hit the hearts of the indie game lovers” - Pablo Purretti, Co-Founder, Purple Tree Studio.
