About Puyo Nexus

Hi! S2 here. I'm an admin at Puyo Nexus and a veteran Puyo player. Welcome to the Puyo Nexus Patreon page!

What is Puyo Puyo?

Puyo Puyo is a falling-blocks puzzle game series owned by SEGA. You might know it better as Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine or Kirby’s Avalanche, which are western reskins of Puyo Puyo 1. The premise of these games is simple: group four blobs of the same color, and you'll make chains that rain garbage down on your opponent!

In 1994, the series became insanely popular with the release of Puyo Puyo 2. This game introduced a counter rule that lets you cancel garbage before it falls on you. This revolutionized how the game is played, and it spawned massively popular tournaments.

Unfortunately, the Puyo games didn't see many localizations after Puyo Puyo 1. SEGA released Minna de Puyo Puyo for the GBA in 2001, and Puyo Puyo Fever for several consoles in 2004. These releases weren't received well in the west, and that discouraged SEGA from localizing more games. That is, until the release of Puyo Puyo Tetris in 2017: 

Thanks to Puyo Puyo Tetris, the western Puyo Puyo community has grown tremendously. The English Puyo Puyo Discord is now home to thousands of members, and Puyo fans have gathered to host tournaments at major events.

Our Mission

Our mission at Puyo Nexus is to foster the growth of the Puyo community by hosting Puyo Puyo panels and games at conventions, running tournaments, sponsoring artists and players, and teaching the world about Puyo Puyo gameplay and lore.

Currently, it's clear to us that we need to do a lot more work on the developmental side of things if we want to keep growing the Puyo Puyo community. I (S2) have been working on various tools for teaching people Puyo Puyo. Thanks to the support of our patrons, I've had time to make a Chain Length Indicator Overlay and a WIP playable chain simulator. NN maintains the bots in the Puyo Discord, which we host on a VPS.

We'd like to continue doing more for the Puyo community, but here's the reality: it's tough balancing competitive practice, school, full-time jobs, coding, teaching Puyo, and more without financial support. If you have some cash to spare, we'd greatly appreciate your help.

Patron Rewards

As of 2019, we're reworking rewards for Patreon subscribers to be more realistic and deliverable with respect to our schedules, so rewards right now are limited. If you subscribe, I will provide you with early access to my match videos though! If you're interested in competitive Puyo Puyo, these may help you learn.

Once I work out my financial situation more, we'll be going back to hosting art contests, sponsored tournaments, and local events. Please stay tuned.
