Damn I didn't realise the queen piece could be so intimidating. Though I don't get why it's also unbeatable. This is a really good game by the way.

Developer

Thanks a lot :)

We tried to deviate on some chess rules. Some pieces move with you, some later. All to give more variability to the game, sacrificing a few conventions. It shall remind of chess, but not be the same.

Really neat game! I included it in my GMTK Game Jam 2019 compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Good job, my personal favorite for this jam. I like the visual, the gameplay everything fits.

I really enjoyed playing it. So many levels for a game jam game! 

Developer

thanks!!

We used a modular design. I personally focused a lot on programming interaction, so that once we had a few characters and block, it was kinda easy to build levels!

That was fun, the art style reminded me of Don't Starve, was that intentional?

Still, I'm not a fan of chess but this feels completely different from chess, especially when the platforms started shifting around. 

Developer

mmh, about the art style, it wasn't intentional I guess. Maybe it's the 2d mixed with 3d that is giving this feeling. I should ask the artist and then reply to you ahahaha. You are not the first one pointing this out! In the future we might consider going more on that style!

Submitted

I love that style, so yeah maybe in future it would be good to look into it.

Nice job!!

Nice cute art with full of charm . Quite tricky game and queen is kinda scary lol

We were also thinking about making a chess game with only 1 piece but couldn't really do something with it. Glad that you were able to make a fun puzzle game out of it!

Submitted(+1)

This is brillant! Really! I don't have much to say!

 - The main character is cute and represents the knight chess very well.
 - Love the way the others chess pieces became the enemies of the game.
 - The level design is soooo coool.
 I hope you will get featured in video.

 Great job! :)

Developer

Thanks a lot!!

I hope for you too to get featured :)

Very unique game with cool mechanics and a nice artstyle! Also like the animations and game feel :)

Submitted(+1)

Really like the idea of adding the queen as an adversarial piece and using pawns as, well, pawns. If you expand this idea in the future, I'd love to see more chess piece types and possibly larger levels.

love chess games, good job!

Wow, this game is so amazing! So polished, so fun to play! Really great proof that you don't need much time to do something spectacular :).

I really liked the game.
Levels are made very well, the complexity gradually increases. The first levels can be considered a tutorial. The animations and design are just great. And the idea itself is simple but excellent in execution.

I will be happy if you could also check our game: https://itch.io/jam/gmtk-2019/rate/460954
