Oh, whoa! Check out the Viewing Globe, shorty!




There's lots of games on Steam. Like, tons! And it's inevitable that some will get lost to time. I make a habit of actively seeking out weird games that no one actually likes, though, and I found something I kinda want to share! Pongo is a first-person-platformer, very heavily inspired by Lovely Planet, a much more popular and polished alternative.You might be wondering why you'd want to bother with this game at all, given its competition, and there are at least a couple reasons! Pongo is much less combat-focused than its inspiration, and it adds some interesting new mechanics you'd expect while piloting, well, a Pogo-Stick. It's also super weird-looking!

This LP will hopefully be short and sweet, putting focus on the speed-running aspects of the game design and minimizing commentary. I've also removed the sound effects because they are boring and awful.

I do want to say thank you let's playing this obscure game. It's great to see unique games like this, even if it's a bit rough, I still like what they did. Just a pogo stick, and a feeling of freedom...

Gym badge day is a VERY dangerous day!


Wow, thanks for this.
That was an interesting little trip. The best part, by far, is the soundtrack, which really is pretty .
The "combat" seems kind of tedious, though. I wonder why they didn't just go for a "mario kill" damage style, where you just jump on things heads, instead of somehow turning your pogo stick into a gun.

Thanks guys. It's not super-polished, but it's definitely not the shovelware people made it out to be.
