In Mato Anomalies, Alongside Gram, a shaman-like character, you’ll (as Doe) explore the city’s districts to uncover the truth behind rifts causing inexplicable damage. As you progress through Mato, you’ll encounter various characters with unique reasons to help Doe in his investigation.
These characters include Butterfly, a thief who steals from the corrupt upper class to inspire the impoverished workers of Mato; Smoker, an older veteran suffering from lingering trauma; and Mist, an electronic idol who has shed her physical body and now exists solely in a digital consciousness.
Each of these characters will have different skills that you can use to your advantage, such as the ability to Mind Hack people in order to get information out of them or perception sharing, which allows you to see past someone’s memory to see a broader view of events.
The characters are all well-drawn, and their sprites fit in with the game’s overall aesthetic. The art style and music complement each other incredibly well, creating a stylish atmosphere that evokes old detective movies.
