Some of you may be familiar with Eastside Games from their release Dragon Up (Free) several years ago, a game that gained quite a bit of popularity for its vomiting dragons. It’s the little things in life, isn’t it? Anyway, they’re working on a follow-up that’s not exactly a sequel but does feature the same adorable vomiting dragons from Dragon Up. It’s called Dragon Up: Match 2 Hatch, and it combines strategic match-2 gameplay (yes, match TWO, not three) with unlocking and adopting those cute dragons. Check out a demo of Dragon Up: Match 2 Hatch we were given at GDC earlier today.
It’s pretty difficult to get excited about a matching game in this day and age, but I found the matching gameplay in Match 2 Hatch pretty interesting and strategic. There will be a TON of levels on launch and I’m sure many more to come post-launch, and same goes for the little vomiting dragons that you get to unlock. Dragon Up: Match 2 Hatch is currently in a closed beta but Eastside will be looking to our community to do an open beta in the coming months, so keep an eye out for that.
