Tengami is the work of a quartet of former Rare Developers, a game that has players guiding an origami samurai through a rice paper world of puzzles, wolves and folding tea houses.

Papercraft gaming made quite a splash at Gamescom this year when Media Molecule unveiled their next title for the Vita: Tearaway.

But the portable augmented reality game from the creators of LittleBigPlanet wasn't the only impressive papercraft game at the show this year.

Tengami is the work of a quartet of former Rare Developers, a game that has players guiding an origami samurai through a rice paper world of puzzles, wolves and folding tea houses. It's a game of soft hues and rich textures. An experience both relaxing and challenging.

We sat down with developer Nyamyam's Jennifer Schneidereit to talk about the game and its inspirations.


Tengami is currently in development for the iPad, though Schneidereit tells Polygon that there are plans for iPhone, PC and Mac releases as well.
