A prototype for a chess rogue-lite where you move upwards and defeat enemies to gain cards that give special abilities or increased range.  

Enemy pieces can only move up to 2 tiles, search up how the chess pieces move if you don't already, as that will be a big help.  

To play simply click on the player (the horse bird hybrid thing) and click on where you want to go, currently only the rook is in the game with a distance of 3 tiles.  In the full game you can start of with different pieces.

The style was inspired by the Pop Art of Andy Warhol and Keith Haring.  All drawn in ms paint and transparency was added using piskel.

With only 2 days, I ran out of time to implement the ability to change starting piece, although the code is in place, and some moves may not be 100% correct as I finished implementing them in the last 10 minutes.   There are some bugs that I didn't have time to fix either, just reload if you can't click on the player anymore.

I do plan on taking a couple weeks to fix it up and maybe make a full version.

Challenges done:

  • Draw your assets without a drawing tablet.
  • Try to make the title/logo without any real type/font.
