Sumoman is a horizontal arcade puzzler with an advanced physics, destructible objects and ability to reverse time. The players will solve various physical puzzles, trying to keep a sumoman on his feet in the challenging environments.

Sumoman has been chosen as one of the 8 finalists in Main Competition of the 6th Independent Games Festival China (IGF China). The game is being developed by Tequilabyte Studio based on UNIGINE engine.


A young Sumoman returning home from the sumo tournament finds his fellow countrymen in a dramatic peril. An Evil Mage has enchanted the inhabitants of the island, including the magnificent Daughter of the Daimyo, putting them to the eternal sleep.
