More Puzzle Quest is coming - For Puzzle Quest developer Infinite Interactive, the last few years have been filled business mergers, strategic partnerships, and other business buzzwords you might find in a Dilbert comic. All of that has settled down now, and the studio is back to its independent status and ready to return to its roots. Namely, its puzzle RPG hybrid roots! When asked about the possibility of more Puzzle Quest in the future, Infinite Interactive founder Steve Fawkner said "...if you shook a Magic 8-ball and asked ... it would probably say 'all signs point to yes!'". Sounds good enough for us! Commence the happiness feelings!

Baldur's Gate coming to iPad - Can't wait for September to begin? We can't imagine why, at least, until you've finished reading this note about Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition coming to iPad in September! The improved remake of the classic '90s RPG was first teased months ago, but a release window has finally been nailed down. The updated release will feature a new adventure in a new area along with three new characters: a monk, a half-elf mage, and the blackguard Dorn Il-Khan. Oh, and multiplayer matchmaking has been improved, along with plenty of enhancements for the touch screen interface. Let the impatient countdown timer watching begin!
Adventure game Lili unveiled - From an ex-Gears of War developer, Lee Perry, and his new studio BitMonster Games, Lili is an upcoming mobile adventure RPG hybrid that looks too stunning to be "just" a portable game.

Sounds like a grind-free fun-time adventure to us, and we're excited to see more!
