Independent developer Cube Roots announced the upcoming launch of its puzzle-RPG hybrid title Dungeon Hearts, to be released next year in cooperation with Serious Sam 3 publisher Devolver Digital.
The first successful pitch resulting from Devolver Digital's unique indie-targeted Pitch Fork Parker campaign, Dungeon Hearts promises "a nostalgic blend of classic RPG elements fused into a vibrant match-three puzzle game for a wholly unique experience."
"Dungeon Hearts has been a labor of love for a while now," notes Cube Roots founder Chris Pavia. "As an indie it can be tough bringing your project to a publisher for fear they are going to strip away the developer's personality from the final product. It has been quite the opposite with the guys over at Devolver Digital, it's been great working with people who embrace the weird and quirky."
Dungeon Hearts will premiere for Windows, Mac, and mobile platforms in early 2013.
