Magic Puzzle Quest 2

Game board

Magic: The Gathering - Puzzle Quest is a game developed by Hibernum Creations and published by D3 Go! and Wizards of the Coast on December 10, 2015.[1][2]

Description[ | ]

The game, based on the original Puzzle Quest combines role-playing with strategy and puzzle elements. It uses a competitive Bejeweled-style playfield to simulate combat and other activities common to role-playing games.

Players engage in pitched conflicts with rival planeswalkers and monsters through match-3 puzzle battles, earning levels and amassing a collection of powerful creatures, spells and artifacts along the way. The cards you play are triggered by the matches you make. Once you have enough, the cards in your hand will play automatically — but you'll be able to decide their order manually.

D3 Go! is a worldwide publisher of original and licensed interactive entertainment video games. D3 Go! is a brand of D3Publisher of America Inc. and is located in Los Angeles, CA.

History[ | ]

In August 2017, Hibernum (the developer) announced the closure of their studio.[3] In October of that year, Oktagon Games was hired as the new development team. In addition, Steve Fawkner, the original creator of Puzzle Quest, took a Senior Designer consultant role with Oktagon Games to assist on the title.[4]
