MY, MY! What a great game for just 15$! I always loved your work guys, you just never cease to amaze me with wonderful, well crafted stuff.

you guys should just add it to steam as early access, so we can play in the beta test as well!

this sounds great. been waiting for a chess game like this (although I dont get it, why are there diff game modes lol is it sort of like War of the Roses, and then another game mode is chess) that would be great.

Needs more momentum for Greenlight. I can only think of one way!
pikachu and charmander!

On another note, the blocking system might need a small change, I'm currently trying to see what happens if I make block, universally block 50% of damage. Currently you can go near god mode by just blocking, for example a beast bishop cannot kill you, if you just block.

Chess with decapitation is a clear upvote. Linux support would be appreciated.
honorabili Oct 11, 2013 @ 12:25pm 
This reminds me of Archon (c64 game) but in 3D - that's a good thing!
Devil Wanted Oct 9, 2013 @ 6:38pm

Hi, man, I've played your "Ballistic Weapons" mod for "UT2k4", honestly, best mod of highest quality I ever played for any fps! and this game looks really fun, arsenal of medieval melee weapons to decapitate your foes? I must try it, these head cuts reminds me of Rune.

Chainmail Chess... amazing that a game like this comes out and no one even knows about it. Just goes to show what a generation of buffoons we have running things. Im really having a hard time wrapping my mind around all the garbage that they continually come out with and yet a freakin Chainmail Chess game comes out like this and I only found it in the bargain bin at Amazon.

Modding just became a whole lot easier. The example mod you included with the source code will come in handy.

Just hope gets the Greenlight someday, so that the game can reach it's full potential.

interesting ;)
herpmike ~[Derpy Panda]~ Jul 21, 2013 @ 8:30pm 
it's a really great desing in my opinion though with the vastly large amount of mmorpg's and pvp's you guys must find more ways to make your game stand out, i hope you guys get the greenlight!
RuneStorm  [author] Jul 20, 2013 @ 4:44pm 
Technically it is 64(possibly higher), but 'supporting' 32 is safer ;) It could get quite wonky up that high :)
