Tengami was created with a devotion to authenticity and craftsmanship. Every fold and crease is true, and the environment was painstakingly painted with paper. It deserved to be presented to the world with just as much passion.
The torii gate is an iconic element of the game, and after bringing it to life with blood, sweat, lumber, and paper, it stood as a ten foot tall beacon, drawing players to Tengami. To ensure that it could not go unnoticed, two simple lights were used to illuminate and emphasize the gate's texture and scale.
Not everything has to be ten feet tall though, so we hand made hundreds of colorful washi-paper pinwheels which decorated the booth and delighted attendees as playful mementos. An accompanying video on how to make the pinwheels at home was produced for fans who couldn't attend the show but wanted to capture a piece of the Tengami magic.
Our work didn't end once the booth was built and the pinwheels assembled. Side-by-side with the Nyamyam team we shared our love for Tengami with attendees, getting them excited to journey through its elegant world. The Tengami booth stood in peaceful opposition to the hustle and bustle of the PAX show-floor.
