Legend of Fae

Legend of Fae, by indie duo Endless Fluff, was recently added to Steam. The game is a charming mix of the Match-3 and RPG genres: the player switches between the two, using magic they’ve gathered in the puzzle mode to attack in the RPG mode. It’s pretty tame at first, but battles get frantic in the second half of the game and the mechanics start to really shine. The game is easily worth the 10 dollar price tag; by the end I’d say it was the best Match-3 game I’ve played. There’s just not much interest for the rather lengthy introductory segment of the the game.

Although the demo for the game is strangely absent from Steam’s store page, you can still nab it from the developer’s website.

    Hehe. Invaters.
    Naw bros it’s really a good game. I focused wind and then water on my character build; the wind AOE is stupid levels of useful against flying enemies.

    Mixing Match 3 with Action Elements surprisingly turned out to be one of the best games I’ve ever played: Henry Hatsworth. So this one I’ll look out for as well.

    This game reminds me of something… something about mining, and also crafting… but I can’t put my finger on it!

    It’s made with GM too, which is a pretty big achievement. Kudos to the developer!

    I’ve been eyeing this game on steam for a couple of days now…   I might sound a bit macho by saying this and considering that very few games have female protagonists, but this is one reason I think this game might be held back. I’m a little gun shy at the moment, I find it doesn’t appeal to me, not because of the casual match gameplay but because of the story, I’d be curious to know how well it does.

    I see nothing but the video screen shot, and instantly think get the idea of what to me, is a new genre. I flesh out the idea really quickly in my head, then play the video, only to realize that the game is exactly what my idea was haha. Regardless of the fact that I don’t get to use my new idea as is, the game looks fantastic. I love the battle styem, and the art looks amazing.
