Popcap Games and Square-Enix are teaming up to release Gyromancer, a mix of Bejeweled Twist and RPG elements (think Puzzle Quest, for various systems).
Check out this quote from John Yamamoto, President and chief executive officer of Square-Enix:
“We’ve always enjoyed a strong partnership with PopCap Games and Gyromancer represents our goal of developing unique gaming experiences, ” said John Yamamoto, president and chief executive officer of Square Enix, Inc. “We believe that Gyromancer will appeal not only to core gamers, but will further introduce the RPG genre to casual gamers as well.”
Will it be a hit? Will Puzzle Quest (which has had one sequel already released and been on the market quite awhile) have some competition? Will we finally see the emergence of what I call “competition Bejeweled” games?
