Developers Olde Sküül and Sculptured Software have released Battle Chess: Game of Kings on Steam Early Access.
Here is what the developers have to say about Battle Chess: Game of Kings.
“Battle Chess: Game of Kings is the return of the classic Battle Chess. We are bringing it back and into the modern day. Full 3-d, a better chess algorithm and more features for online play that we couldn’t do with the original. Back then we were lucky to have 320×200, 16 colors and a 1200 baud modem at best.
We are currently in late alpha with a few more features to go and we want your feed back as we get them up and going and in yours hands. Chess itself is up and running and basic multiplayer (same screen and online)is too. Soon we will have ladders and ranking and skill based match making as well as skill challenges. As these come online we look forward to your feedback and help.
You can now download Battle Chess: Game of Kings for $9.99 (full version to cost $19.99 once game goes live) on Steam.
