  • Puzzle Kingdom Secures Sponsorships

Puzzle Kingdom (PK) has recently partnered up with several organizations in their ongoing pursuit to bring puzzle game content to the community. Currently, they are sponsored by I Expect You To Die (game), American Red Cross, Breakout Games, and Activate Games. In addition, they are working with Hitbox and TopplePop by ArkimA Games. According to Moose, PK’s founder and admin, the sponsorships have covered the cost of Square One and allowed PK to plan 3 LAN events, streamlining their ideas for the future.

  • Tetris Survivor Makes and Breaks Friendships

  • Marine Wins Hololive PPT2 Tournament

Organized by Suisei and Pekora from HololiveJP, the Hololive Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 tournament pitted 18 Hololive members against each other and was streamed live to millions of viewers on Holodex and YouTube. Houshou Marine won the finals on April 16, defeating Koyori’s Tetris with her Puyo gameplay. This cemented herself as the top player behind Suisei, who was banned beforehand for being too good. The tournament caused a significant jump in PPT2 sales, and will hopefully lead to higher interest in the game!
