We have nearly 4k citizens of the Matchyverse and that’s roughly 28k rocket surgeons building ships to get all the way to Xanadu! It’s been a wonderful experience so far getting to see all of you play and enjoy MatchyGotchy, and for that we wanted to do an extra special update for Valentine’s Day to thank you for all the love and support you’ve shared with us.
This Valentine’s Day update has over 10 new faces for each star. The productivity effect gets some loving too – star particles turn into hearts if you click on your Star multiple times. These updates are permanent for the game, meaning the faces and heart effects will be available long after Valentine’s Day.
And last but not least, there is an exclusive new Valentine’s Day selfie screen, with all the new faces you can take as many selfies as you want with all dat love! This is a limited time update for Valentine’s Day available for one week only, meaning it goes live today Feb 14th and we will take it down Feb 21st.
Again, thank you so much for playing MatchyGotchy! You are what brings the Matchyverse to life. Make sure you don’t miss out on this Valentine’s Special Update. Screenshot away and follow us on Steam for more updates on more games coming for the Matchyverse very soon.

We have added leaderboard support to MatchyGotchy. The score is based on how many total ships you have built over the course of the game. Also you get one of several statuses in your selfie screen based on how you are doing on the leaderboard. Can you become a Big Cheese?
Our current top player has over 1 million ships built… WOW!

And of course you can grab the game for free on Steam right here.

MatchyGotchy was born as a fun and cute idea, and after months of hard work, we are so happy to share that with all of you. Get it here on steam right now!
We’ve gone through 21 builds of the game in our beta testing process to bring you something fun, new, and intuitive. We’ve even made a manual you can download from the “View the manual” link in the bar on the right to explain exactly “How To Gotchy.”
Please leave comments in the steam forums if you have any questions or want a new feature. We love to hear from players and we want to make this the best possible virtual pet for you so please leave feedback!

Its been so exciting, stressfull, and just a ton of hard work polishing up MatchyGotchy based on the feedback we’ve gotten from our hundred or so beta testers but we’ve got a build up and ready for January 30th. Here is our steam page so you can wish list the game and get notified when it releases in a few days.

Bandai executive, Aki Maita, jumped from corporate work to toy development when she designed the idea of Tamagotchi back in the 90’s. This digital pet toy became a cultural phenomenon with a worldwide cult following, selling millions of copies and inspiring dozens of copycat products and changing the future of Bandai forever. Now, it has helped us reconnect with the idea of fun, inspiring MatchyGotchy for the Silverware Games world.
