Playtika has announced the global launch of a new game, Switchcraft, which has been developed by its game studio in Berlin, Wooga, a leader in storytelling and connecting narratives to casual games. Switchcraft is a storytelling game that combines interactive plots and stories with Match 3 game mechanics.

During the game, participants are required to solve a mystery within a sweeping and fascinating story. The protagonist of the game is a young woman, Bailey Ward, who lives in a small town in Massachusetts in the United States. Bailey leads the players on a winding journey full of challenges and interactions. With its launch, the game will allow Playtica to expand its product range and audience characteristics in one of the most popular areas in the gaming world today, the Match 3 field.

The game will be launched worldwide on the iOS and Android platforms and will be available for download in English and 12 other languages.

A new experience for players

The depth and richness of Switchcraft’s stories and games attract players who love match 3 mechanics and invite them to dive into a virtual world full of characters to identify with. Switchcraft is based on Wooga’s long experience and successful history in creating games with a rich narrative, such as June’s Journey.

The magical theme that appears throughout the Switchcraft game, adds dynamics and unexpected elements to the story and takes the players on a journey of exploration and discovery, choosing paths that change according to the plot development. The game has adopted an artistic and innovative graphic style, and throughout it the stories of characters from a wide range of peoples, genders and people with disabilities are combined, headed by a strong female character. The variety of characters is a unique element compared to other Match 3 games.
