this game is amazing
hold on i think i like where this is going.....
Very fun game! I noticed that if you skip the intro cutscene, the ELO from that moment carries over into the stage - was this intentional?
looks so good !
nice game! gets boring after a little. needs weapons and a couple more things tho
Very juicy ! Use patterns from pop culture is brilliant !
Will this be on steam
Damn the concept of the game is awesome!
Made a video
it looks good, when i have a pc i play 👺
Amazing game. I love the gameplay.
nice concept! i like it!
Super fun game, the difficulty it's in the right spot. Loved the graphics and sound design. Also the little victory jump is super cute :'D
Really fun, sounds and looks absolutely stunning. Love how you've made use of the various pieces and even made use of rules like pawns becoming queens and kings castling. All the pieces are pretty unpredictable at times and you've integrated their behaviours from chess well in this game. A very very good twist on bullet hell and twin sticks
Thank you :)
I wasn't sure how to integrate castling at first, but I looked at how the Damned Chessmen in Devil May Cry 3 did it via teleports and just kinda stole that. Worked out okay
Also a fun fact: the rumbling of Rooks/Queens moving was inspired by the last panel of this comic:
