Hi Touch Arcade,

We're Obsolete Robot a small team of artists and animators, and we've just released our first pixel art memory matching game called Love in the Time of Advertising, which is based on our animated short film of the same name. We'd like to share the launch trailer with ya'll!

Most games have cinematics, well we have an entire cg animated short film! The film is a musical love story about a young man who lives inside a billboard and is charged with updating the advertisements. When he falls in love with the beautiful woman living across the highway, he has to use the only method he knows to get his message across Advertising. The game version asks the player to match the products she desires so that he may communicate his love for her, with perhaps some unforeseen consequences.

The game is absolutely free, completely adorable, encourages hoarding behavior, and has cats... so why not give it a try?

We'd love to hear your thoughts and any questions you might have about the game.
