Today Purple Tree Studio shared the following to their Steam community:
We have some very exciting and some not so exciting news
We’re not going to be able to launch Ponpu on November 5th as we intended.
We want to give this game the best possible chances to succeed, and that unfortunately means that we will postpone the launch a couple of weeks. We are super bummed about this, but we want to make Ponpu the absolute best it can be for you guys.
Now for the cool news
We’ve teamed up with G-Loot, one of the leading companies when it comes to organizing e-sports and community competitions to have one of the coolest launch events (maybe ever) on Steam!
More details will come very soon, but in a nutshell Ponpu will launch with a community competition where players will compete to try and be one of the first 150 people to win a certain number of online multiplayer matches. The lucky ducks who win, will all get to share a prize pool of real cash, courtesy of G-Loot’s cool tech which makes the whole process super smooth!
We really hope that this tiny delay doesn’t overshadow this awesome competition, as we are super stoked to be able to give back the the players with this.
More info to come really soon!
