TUMBLESTONE LAUNCH DATE ANNOUNCED (Video)
Independent developer The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild announced the release date for its original action-puzzle game Tumblestone for PlayStation®4, Wii U™, Xbox One, and Steam (Windows, Mac, and Linux).
Tumblestone is the first original action-puzzle game of the past fifteen years – completely reinventing the genre into a deep and cerebral puzzle solving experience. Diverging from the staid match-3 formula of Bejeweled, Tumblestone strips out all the random gem flipping junk, and elevates the genre with unique puzzles and intense multiplayer gameplay in the spirit of Tetris Attack and Dr. Mario. This isn’t a game for people who want to lull themselves to sleep, no, Tumblestone is for gamers who love old-school puzzle games!
Brought to life with beautiful hand-painted artwork, Tumblestone offers several deep and exciting game modes for both single-player and competitive multiplayer. Help the Sausage King make friends and discover what happened to the Tumblecrown in the 40-hour story campaign featuring twelve worlds, each with a unique twist on the core mechanic. Test your mettle with up to four players in local and online multiplayer, or take on the world with ranked matchmaking and leaderboards. Indulge in multiple arcade modes, including fast-paced Heartbeat mode, brainy Infinipuzzle mode, and relaxing Marathon mode.
Tumblestone is coming to PlayStation®4, Wii U™, and Steam on July 12th for $24.99, and to Xbox One as part of Games with Gold on July 16th. This title is rated E (Everyone) by the ESRB.
