Singapore - December 18, 2012 - MinerMite is a new addictive puzzle RPG released by Ixora Studios, an indie game studio from Singapore.

The kingdom is in crisis!  All the gems (which produce the kingdoms energy) have mysteriously gone missing from the vaults, leaving the it in disarray! Players follow a concerned citizen through his selfless journey volunteering in the mines. As he tries to do his part by replenishing the kingdom's gem supply as fast as he can, he's confronted with mysterious events going on underground... 

Play mechanics are centred around puzzle building and pattern matching, kind of in a Bejewelled meets Tetris sort of way.  If you love match 3 puzzle games and would like to build your own patterns for a change, you'll love MinerMite!

It is currently available on Facebook and is planned for both the iOS and Android tablet platforms.
