Blizzard Unveils 3 Custom Games for StarCraft 2

Tuesday Blizzard announced that StarCraft 2 owners can now beta test three Bizzard-made custom games created to play within its popular sci-fi RTS. These include a collection/cooking title called Aiur Chef, the puzzle/strategy game StarJeweled, and a cool survival and siege title called Left 2 Die.

As the three games are still in beta, Blizzard is offering StarCraft 2 owners a chance to test them out on Battle.net. In return the company is looking for feedback and bug reports before the games go official in the near future.

"To play the beta versions of Aiur Chef, StarJeweled, or Left 2 Die, simply go to the Multiplayer tab in StarCraft 2 and look for the custom games window," the company said. "A few of these games have more than one difficulty setting, so select the level of challenge that's best for you. We hope you enjoy them, and we're looking forward to hearing what you think."

Aiur Chief provides a Free For All multiplayer mode for up to eight participants. Each round features a theme ingredient and three recipes that play upon its unique flavor.

In StarJeweled, players must match groups of jewels according to color and strategically selecting StarCraft 2 units to overcome an opponent's forces and destroy their base. The game supports up to four players and offers Solo vs. A.I., Co-Op vs. A.I., and Player vs. Player modes.

As for Left 2 Die, the game is a cooperative take on the StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty campaign mission Outbreak that shifts between two phases: a night phase and a day phase. Left 2 Die supports up to two players and offers both Co-Op and Night 2 Die modes.
