With Puzzle Quest, the game series continues its triumphal march as a free-to-play title on various platforms.
Videogames- Games announced Puzzle Quest, a brand new sequel to the Puzzle RPG series. It will be the first official release through Games following the recent acquisition of Australian developer studio Infinity Plus Two, creators of the Puzzle Quest series. The team is currently working to present the game as a multiplatform free-to-play title later this year.
"Given the overwhelming fan demand for a sequel to Puzzle Quest over the past decade, we are thrilled to announce the development of Puzzle Quest," said Steve Fawkner, CEO and Creative Lead at Infinity Plus Two. "We've been working on the vision for this latest project for years, and like any good Puzzle Quest game, it's all about balancing gameplay, story and strategic puzzle solving. At the same time, we want to introduce something unexpected to appeal to both old and new fans. We can't wait to share PQ with players."
Puzzle Quest returns to its origins, revisiting the deep role-playing mechanics and signature hero stories that made the original a hit among match games. With a new twist on traditional puzzle gameplay, Puzzle Quest offers a thrilling duel combat system in a D-game world.
Players embark on a hero's journey that takes them across Etheria years after the events of the original Puzzle Quest to discover the meaning of the last words of the ancient Red Dragon.
"Puzzle Quest has shaped the puzzle RPG genre and has become a beloved brand with a significant legacy that continues to resonate today with a player base in the millions. What Steve Fawkner and his team have done to relaunch the series as an FP experience on multiple platforms will undoubtedly redefine the puzzle genre once again. As a united - and development - team, we have paved a path for the series that puts players first to cater to our growing community," said Clive Robert, Head of Free-to-Play at Games.
