KHESS, this game's successor is currently in development and softlaunching on google play.
Check out it's itch.io page or Google Play listing for more info and future updates!!

Pretty nice idea with clean implementation and good music. The puzzles are rather difficult, I think a little more guidance would not be bad.

This was a really creative entry, and I had a lot of fun with it especially because recently I just started up playing chess again with some of my friends! My favorite moment was the level where the pawn was all alone and he had to make it to the end of the line and become the queen, which implements a really cool mechanic in chess. You found a way to include all the aspects of chess while also creating a game that felt more like a puzzle game than it did like chess. A ton of polish too, you even included an undo button which is something our game needs but we ran out of time before implementing it. Really great entry I had a great time beating the levels!

Great twist on "Chess" :D With so many levels and mechanics, it's pretty much a full-fledged game

Developer

Planning on pushing a post-gamejam update tomorrow! Anything anyone think I should add?

Submitted

I liked the puzzles pretty well designed Good Job...

This game elongs to the long list of inovative puzzlle games in this jam. Good work designing it.

Clever puzzle game!  Better than regular chess.  :D

Really great idea! Could easily be expanded into a full game.

Really fun game and very enjoyable, the differing chess pieces made for a lot of different and interesting puzzle mechanics, really nice job :)

Submitted

Played and handled very well. I think you should have maybe changed colors of active pieces sometimes I'd get lost trying to find my guy at the start of every level. Having an undo button was pretty helpful at times, took a little bit to finish it but we trucked on through!

I really liked the game and the concept. Some of the puzzles do get a spike in difficulty but it really is great.

Extremely creative use of the chess pieces. Was very entertaining to see more real chess rules like queen conversion and pawns moving 2 spaces incorporated into the puzzle. You delivered a very large amount of information on the mechanics through the levels with only a few missteps. It allowed for some very awesome puzzle designs (only some of which made me want to slam my face on the table), and such a large number of them too. Excellent work!

If anyone streams my game on discord or anywhere else please link me or @me! I'm planning to make a post-gamejam update and it would be helpful to see some gameplay

Very cool and interesting mechanics! Perhaps you could improve it by highlighting the tiles you can move to, both for clarity and for helping newcomers to chess (believe me, there are people who don't know what moves chess pieces can make).

Looks cool!!

Welcome to the chess club buddy!

Very cool game concept and appealing aesthetic. As you said in the description, the touch controls are buggy, which got me down because I'm a mouse man. It's a clever idea and art and sound design are very well done. Especially the use of color. Everything is very clear because of the separation of dark and light shades, and sparse use of red. Nice work!

I love the checkerboard pattern.
The puzzles are also very good.
I really enjoyed this.

The only tip I could think of is that puzzle games like this have the tendency to get people stuck in very unpredictable places.
Games like "baba is you" have a solution for that by making it possible to skip a level.
I shouldn't bother for a game-jam game. But if you want to make it a full-on game then it's something to think about.

This is the best puzzle game I have played in the jam so far, I love it. I got stuck on level 5 tho, the game is super hard, but the game design is amazing! I for sure will try to complete it when I have more time.

Submitted

This is an awesome very polished game, that looks better than mine.  Great job!
