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

This is awesome, Thanks!

Helloooo I don't know if you were aware but you're on the front page of RPS right now:

No I wasn't aware, Thanks for telling me!

Very nice idea. Experienced the same bug on the last level but was really enjoying it up until then.

Interesting concept and the puzzles are cool, only problem is the bugs I came across as others have as well. Bishop not taking pieces, pawns overlapping, and not being able to move after the king piece was introduced.

Cool idea, I found a couple of bugs such as the bishop not being able to take pieces and also being able to go through pieces, and enemies moving into the same space, but it's pretty fun and challenging.

I won! I saw a bug where two pawns overlapped which was pretty odd. I like the concept :)

A mighty fine idea! Great execution as well. For some reason the game bugged out on the last level, and I couldn't move, but I really loved it.

Please check out our game at https://itch.io/jam/gmtk-2019/rate/463868! Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

This is a really awesome idea. The last two levels bugged out for me so I wasn't able to move, but apart from that it was great.

Things to improve: Game juice. The screen shake when enemies die is nice, but not enough. More music (maybe different themes for pawn/knight/bishop), more sound effect, more particles.

Other than that, this is a really impressive game to finish in 48 hours. Well done! I'd like to play more of this.

I love playing chess and I wish I can give this more than 5 stars.

It's a pretty simple idea with a brilliant execution. The levels are great and even the sound effects are nice!

I don't think anyone can ask for more than this, it has everything!

Hey, we made a godot game too. Check it out!

Developer

Thanks! Really glad you liked it

This was a really cool concept! I wonder how it would affect gameplay if you made switching pieces take a movement. The scenarios you put together were well thought out too!

Submitted(+1)

Cool concept! There are some bugs (as others have mentioned) and the enemy AI isn't super great but with a little polish this could be a really great game!

Awesome! Really cool game

Really good, quickly froze though, which was a real shame

It's interesting! :)

After the king showed up I couldn't move anymore. But up until then it was a lovely little puzzler! I really liked it.

Developer

Thanks! There is some bug that stops movement and breaks the game after a while, no idea what is causing it.

Nice game! The familiarity of the chess mechanics combined with the ability to switch the player's piece makes for some unique strategic gameplay.
