Developer: Endless Fluff (developers of Valdis Story)
DRM & Distribution: DRM-Free, Desura, Steam
I recently grabbed this one in another bundle somewhere. The Desura page is really pretty, and made me want to play it, so I checked it out. Turns out it's also from the same developers as Valdis Story. Awesome.
Anyway, I'm pleasantly surprised with it so far. It takes the traditional match-3 mechanic of stuff like Bejeweled and mixes it in with magic and spellcasting, gorgeous art, an engaging storyline, upgrades, and light RPG elements. The gameplay is deeper than it might seem at a glance, and it's all extremely well presented too; the art and music are both wonderful, and it doesn't throw too much at you too quickly. Really worth a look; it's not just another match 3 game, and it will definitely keep my interest long enough for me to play through it from start to finish I suspect.
