PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Taking inspiration from a chant often performed by fans, the Portland Timbers have launched a new video game available online.

“Set Piece” is a “Tetris” like game, where the goal is to fill straight lines across a grid using falling blocks of different shapes. Instead of blocks, though, “Set Piece” players manipulate items including the Victory Log, a soccer ball, scarves, roses, a hand saw, a chainsaw and an ax.

The game also features Timbers-themed music and backgrounds from around Oregon.

Portland-based digital agency instrument worked with the Timbers to release the game, and the team noted that it is the first team-developed web-based game in the MLS.

The team said the “Tetris” chant performed by the Timber’s Army during matches inspired the game. During the chant, fans move side-to-side together while singing the iconic theme music from the game.

The video game can be played at SetPiece.com, where fans can also track high scores from other players.
