The Game

PogoChamp was originally a prototype I made in 2018, during a self-imposed 10 week challenge to "make a game every week". The idea sprouted from simple wordplay, just adding "o" to the twitch favorite "pogchamp".

The game was a surprising hit among friends and coworkers, and came up in conversation occasionally for months afterward. Development on this version of PogoChamp started in earnest in October 2019, with consistent progress being made since then.
