Hey everybody,

I thought I would showcase my new puzzle game I'm working on for the Xbox LIVE Indie Games.

It's a puzzle game called Chains. The idea is that you must clear the board of blocks by building chains of colors. You have to stay ahead of the Timer blocks otherwise they will drop new lines of colors onto the board preventing you from reaching your next level.

There a few other special blocks.
Multipliers (score multiplier)
Locked Blocks (cannot be moved or rotated)
Add Time (adds 30 seconds to all Timer blocks)
Bomb (destroys all non-special blocks of a specific color)
Shuffle (reshuffles the board with the same colors for a better chance of making matches)
Flash (covers the board with a flash occasionally slowing the player down)
Poison (drains the time away from all Timer blocks on the board)

(click for fullsize)

Take a look at our blog:

There is a gameplay video on the second blog post for those that would like to take a look at the core gameplay.

The game is set to be released in April of 2012. However, we are going to be doing an open-alpha testing in about two weeks. So if you would like to try a free (limited) copy of the game, like our Facebook page and join the "Chains Alpha Test" group and you will be notified when the alpha is available for download on Windows.

Feedback is appreciated!! :)

Thanks all!
