Gemcrate is, at its core, an attempt to recapture some of the fun and magic had when playing similar match-3 games in the golden era of Mac shareware. The result is a faithful adaption of those games, brought into the modern age of indie gamedev.

I also made a posting about it on my website, which goes into a little more detail on the tools used to create it, and the exact reasons I created the game.
