Puzzle to the Center of the Earth - by Foursaken Media (Spelunky + match 3)

Hey everyone, we're finally ready to announce one of the next games we've been working on for the past few months - Puzzle to the Center of the Earth!

Puzzle to the Center of the Earth blends exploration, "match 3" (Dungeon Raid "drag to match 3+ blocks" style), platforming, and puzzle elements.

In a nutshell, players will drag to match 3 or more blocks to destroy them, creating a pathway for your character to journey through and explore the area. There are over 80 huge levels across a variety of different environments. Find hidden treasure and secret passages, avoid dangerous enemies and obstacles, solve intricate puzzles, and ultimately dig your way downwards to the core of the Earth!

The great news is that we're probably about 95% done with Puzzle to the Center of the Earth (just polish now), and we're shooting for an early (tentative) October release

OH HELL YEAH!!!!

YAY another teaser game from FM

With this almost done and Phantom Rift coming out. You mugs are about to be stupid RICH

If we could harvest human stupidity to run our electricity, and our cars, the world would see a new era of clean, renewable energy. That's an amazing resource we're wasting.

It looks like those 20 greenies just got the better of your little spelunker

Different enemies require different things/strategies to take them out or avoid. For these plants, if you combo through them you will kill/damage them.

No actual combat. You'll use strategy and platforming to avoid most dangers.
