Worth Playing has an interview with Tim Ramage, executive producer at D3 Publisher of America. Here is a small sample:
WP: Puzzle Quest 2 is a true sequel to Puzzle Quest versus a spin-off of Galactrix, correct?
TR: Yes, with Puzzle Quest 2, we're going back and providing a true sequel to Puzzle Quest 1. With Galactrix, it was more of a spin-off in the Puzzle Quest world. This time, with Puzzle Quest 2, we're bringing everything that was epic in Puzzle Quest 1 to life in Puzzle Quest 2, with a new type of adventure. It's more of a dungeon crawler type of adventure where players essentially get a chance to explore the world from a closer point of view. It's a single world where you, as an adventurer, stumble upon this town of Verloren, which is cursed by this magic that has overtaken a nearby castle. You are there to solve the mystery.
