Holy smokes! The light is Green!
Any Monty Python fans out there?
Release date: Early 2014
Chess Heroes is a modern take on chess that draws a lot of inspiration from video games. There are special moves, magic spells, terrain types, a cinematic story, secrets to unlock, and more!

It's is played as a series of scenarios, where each side has different pieces and board positions. Each piece moves as you would expect, but there the similarities end. You'll have to use new skills to prevent the enemy from breaching your defenses, defeat unique bosses, wipe out the opposing force, and -- just maybe -- pick up a few hats for your king! (which naturally unlock special powers, or did you already guess that?)

If you're curious or want to learn more, you can download the demo at .

Chess Heroes is being made by Ted Brown, a veteran game developer, and the soundtrack is by Corey Jackson, who lives and breathes music.

Thank you for your support on Greenlight!

Will there be any other chess variants, or just 1 special way that you made? (cause I love chess variants and want a game I can play lots on). Either way, voted.
