Developed by Indonesian Studios MelonCat and Niji Games in collaboration with Singapore-based Soft Source, Matchmaker Agency puts players in charge of an agency dedicated to pairing up hopeful romantics searching for their perfect match.

Matchmaker Agency

As the game unfolds, players inherit their grandparents’ matchmaking agency, embarking on a journey to restore its former glory. Along the way, they’ll encounter challenges like a stern landlord, lingering debts, and competition from rival agencies.

In the game, players will analyse and interview clients, scout ideal locations, pick out thoughtful gifts, and plan memorable dates to ensure a perfect match. Clients come in various personalities, with unique preferences and backgrounds, adding depth to each encounter.

According to the developers, despite being procedurally generated, every client has intriguing backstories and aspirations. Successful matches earn players experience points, which can be used to upgrade skills and enhance the agency’s office.

Matchmaker Agency promises a delightful blend of dating simulation and lighthearted management mechanics, offering a refreshing take on the genre. It’s the perfect game to enjoy on Valentine’s Day, whether flying solo or spending time with a loved one.

Keep an eye out for Matchmaker Agency on Steam, arriving on February 14, 2024.
