Chronic Logic Announces Release of Triptych for PC,Linux, and Mac

Chronic Logic announces the release of Triptych, a new fast-paced puzzle 
game from the creators of the bridge building game Pontifex.

Triptych takes classic puzzle game elements and incorporates a dynamic 
physics engine to give an experience that differs from the standard 
puzzle game. Blocks are pulled down by gravity as you move them around 
and give them rotational velocity to align them properly. Touch three 
blocks of the same color together and they become energized and now have 
the ability to energize other blocks of the same color. This can cause 
huge chain reactions that will build up your bonus so that you can rack 
up points. Smash blocks together to get them to bounce off each other 
and make them go where you want them (or in some cases, where you don't 
want them). The game board is a living body of blocks that moves on its 
own, and your ability to manipulate it will be the key to success. As 
you go up levels by keeping the blocks below the end line, you will have 
less time to place the blocks, so you'll have to think fast to survive. 
Triptych offers levels of difficulty suited for all types of gamers.

Triptych costs $14.95 and can be purchased at www.chroniclogic.com. To 
sample Triptych, please visit the site to download the free trial 
version. Triptych uses OpenGL and SDL.
