Heya,

it is finally time to bring back Pixel Tennis with its biggest update yet!



These are the highlights:


3D Character Models
Say farewell to the derpy pill-shaped avatars and welcome Kuro and Lea as the new playable characters. The VRoid Studio based models are animated and offer the ability to switch between various outfits and hairstyles.

Steam
The game is silently sneaking to the official Steam Store. :o
In addition to that, you can now use your Steam account to play instead of the previously mandatory Pixel Tennis account. If you already registered here, you can link both after logging in with the latter.
I guess, Pixel Tennis can be classified as an actual game now, huh?

There standalone/installer version and the .apk for Android devices remain available, if you prefer them.
