Just released this week is Runefall 2 from Playcademy and GC Games, a pretty great looking casual match-3 game.
Match 3 games are still underserved on Linux, with very few high quality titles of the genre so it really is great to see more. People often underestimate how big the casual market is. As for Runefall 2, this is the first Linux release from Playcademy!
They say it's a match-3 "like no other", as every match you make "moves you around the world to explore and find unique items, treasure chests, veins of resources, obstacles to overcome, and more" which sounds intriguing. Check out the official trailer below:
A little more about it:
Runefall 2 improves on the original Runefall in a myriad of ways. Levels are now replayable, include full level maps to easily track your progress, and can be saved at any time without losing progress. You can even now continue exploring levels after completing them, and earn badges for fully clearing levels. Explosives can now be created by making large matches, so you can blast your way through levels. There are new types of game pieces, new blockers to destroy, updated bonus goals, improved minigames and quests, new runes and journals to collect, new level progress tracking, new characters, and so much more!
You can find Runefall 2 on Steam.
