Match-3 first-person shooter MATCHO announced for PS5, Xbox Series, and PCDue out in 2022.
FiolaSoft Studio has announced MATCHO, a “match-3 first-person shooter” for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC (Steam). It will launch in 2022 with English and Czech voice-overs, and English, Czech, French, Italian, German, and Spanish subtitle options.
Here is an overview of the game, via FiolaSoft Studio:
MATCHO is a unique action-adventure match-3 shooter that plays like no other first-person shooter game you’ve ever experienced. Move fast, think faster, tag three or more enemies of the same color, create a match, and watch enemies explode in terrifying blows. Chain further matches and create l combos leading to bigger scores. Use the extensive, built-in parkour system to wall-run, double-jump, float, and dash in any direction you like. Expand your movement range by combining all of the abilities together to execute spectacular combo chains and show those nasty bugs who’s boss!
Meet Max—a 25-year-old guy who spent the last eight years of his life in the underground laboratories of Triagon. During that time, Triagon tried to cure Max’s “sickness”—incredibly dangerous bursts of strange energy that are potentially fatal if not controlled properly. Triagon’s scientists tried to suppress Max’s sickness in various ways without success. Their only success was finding a way to control the energy bursts through a special cage via which Max’s sickness can be triggered and safely directed into containers. The problem with this solution is that while it protects others from unintentional harm, it renders Max dependent on Triagon indefinitely and without any chance for escape, a cure, or an end to his isolation from the rest of humanity.
Just as he has begun to accept that this is how it will be for the rest of his life, everything changes with the appearance of Thomas Jetsen. He informs Max that the Triagon Facility Leader has been kidnapped by strange, bug-like creatures from outer space. What’s even more peculiar is that the measured energy signature of the alien bugs is apparently identical to Max’s.
This is where Max’s story begins. He will now go on a quest to save the Triagon leader, find a way to get rid of the space insects, and, most importantly, understand the nature of his unique skills. For years, this weird energy considered a curse now seems to be a blessing that could save humanity from an unknown threat.
