Open Beta / Early Access :
This is the Open Beta release. There is no minimum price, you can purchase it for free on Itch.io and have access to all the future updates. I am looking for feedback and compatibility testing.
Looking for feedback :
I am looking for feedback on anything you want to communicate on, and on these points :
- hardware compatibility : did you have any issue running the game on your machine? Was the framerate smooth?
- 3D legibility : was it easy to distinguish the pieces? Would you prefer 2D sprite-based graphics?
- mouse input : was it easy selecting and moving pieces with the mouse?
- mouse input : was it easy moving and scaling the camera?
- computer difficulty : did you find a computer skill level that was not too hard, enjoyable to play against?
Planned features :
- save and load a game in progress
- undo move
- load .PGN game file
- analyse previous games with the Stockfish engine
Possible future features :
- 2D sprite-based rendering engine
