Video: Creating the striking pop-up book world of Tengami

Nyamyam's Jennifer Schneidereit speaks at GDC 2015 about the intriguing technical and design challenges faced in creating the environments of Tengami, an adventure game inside a virtual pop-up book.

In 2014 Nyamyam's Tengami earned critical acclaim for its remarkable visual style, which replicates the look of a traditional folding pop-up book. 

Players fold and slide parts of the world to solve puzzles and progress through the game. At GDC 2015, developer Jennifer Schneidereit took the stage to explain how her team overcame the many technical challenges that come with trying to build a game so intrinsically tied to its artistic style.

Her talk offers an inside look at the tools developed to create realistically folding 3D pop-ups and the process of transforming these initially rather abstract looking models into something to be remembered.

It's an intriguing look at a striking work of game development, and if you missed it in person you can now watch it for free via the official GDC YouTube channel.
