D3Publisher of America has officially announced that it will be bringing Puzzle Quest creator Infinite Interactive's new story-based puzzle game Galactrix to the Xbox 360, PC and DS in fall of 2008, now rebranded with the Puzzle Quest name. In contrast to the original prototype shots previously seen on Infinite Interactive's site which show a similar mechanic to classic puzzler Same Game, Galactrix is now a hexagonal puzzler which D3 says lends the play "a wide range of strategic depth," as the play will be affected by various forces of gravity depending on location in the universe. The publisher says the science fiction story of the Puzzle Quest followup will an alien race hoping to exterminate humankind following "a horrifying scientific accident." Players will take the role of "a persistent pilot who gains skills, crafts items, maneuvers among the universe’s political factions, and upgrades the ultimate space fleet as they attempt to end the genocide." The title's creation was funded in part by Film Victoria's Digital Media Prototyping program. Infinite Interactive is currently slated for PC, Xbox 360, and DS platforms, though no indication has yet been given on other developers helping to port the title. Said Infinite Interactive president and lead designer, “D3’s support of our inventive experiment to create compelling gameplay based on a combination of puzzles, strategy and role-playing reaped fantastic rewards for us and for game fans of multiple genres. For Puzzle Quest: Galactrix, our development team will persist in that vein and introduce an innovative hexagonal puzzle board to the mix, along with a deeply immersive new science-fiction setting and storyline that gamers will find irresistible.”
