Fact sheet


Glowpop  is a punishing Nintendo/PC 2D platformer game where the player gets a glimpse to the epic journey the Punnu have on their way to find a source of an unidentified signal. 

Get ready for an out-of-this-world adventure. Take on the role of the Yellow Punnu, a bright little explorer who can light up even the darkest places. But there's a twist – no fighting skills, just a glowing heart! 

Explore four wondrous planets, each with five funky maps, in the adorably challenging Ghibli-inspired universe. Don't be fooled by the cuteness; the Brutal difficulty means no slip-ups, no health, and no checkpoints.
