Matterfall launches for PS4 in August

From the maker of Resogun

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Matterfall, Housemarque's follow-up project to 2013's popular Resogun, will launch Aug. 15 on PlayStation 4.

Matterfall is a side-scrolling platformer that employs a visual motif similar to what Resogun used in showcasing the PlayStation 4's capabilities at its launch.

In Matterfall, players leap and slide through the level, fighting back against relentless waves of enemies with "matter-infused weapons." The game's signature trait is the manipulation of "smart matter" surrounding the hero and using it to defeat enemies.

The game was first revealed in 2015 at Paris Games Week.
