Sheffield, England – May 30th, 2008 – Video games publisher Lexicon Entertainment and talented Chinese games developer TF-H Co Ltd have announced a 2 year agreement which will see the two companies bring a number of new IP to Nintendo DS, Nintendo Wii and Playstation 3 for a worldwide audience.

First on the horizon as part of this exciting partnership is the firms wholly owned IP ‘Matchman’ which will be released on Nintendo DS in Q1 2009 followed by Nintendo Wii and Playstation 3 in Q2 and 3 respectively.

Christopher Allcroft, President of Publishing for Lexicon Entertainment UK Ltd said “This partnership with TF-H Co Ltd is another piece of our jigsaw which will see new IP on cross platforms being released all over the world and will also expand our collaboration within Asian territory. TF-H Co Ltd are a dedicated and extremely talented bunch of developers and we look forward to developing and publishing this exciting IP for the next 2 years”

Steven Shao of TF-H Co Ltd quoted “We are extremely excited about this partnership with Lexicon Entertainment and the development of ‘Matchman’ on cross platforms. ‘Matchman’ has been carefully chosen to suit the correct audience and working with Lexicon Entertainment will enable users around the world to enjoy it as much as we do!”

‘Matchman’ is a side scrolling shooter involving extraordinary graphics, manipulation and creative features. The graphic style is consisted by black and white line drawing, and the script is based on a combination of some classical fairytales such as Grimm's and Anderson’s fairytales. In the script, there are many humorous factors. The black and white style will bring you the feel of an old school comic, which will attract audiences from different age groups.

One of the special features is the unconventional means to knock through some of scenario. In this case, you’re not going to kill bosses directly. For instance, conventionally you kill monsters by using weapons; but to kill an evil bird named “Baba Yaga”, you need to throw apples and feed it until its stomach bursts! Another feature is about manipulation. Within the game is a mode called Commuter, specially designed for people on public transport commuting to the office. These people can use a single hand to operate the console and the other to enjoy a soothing cuppa!
