Dungeon Chess is what happens when tech. meets a board game based on the idea of Chess Meets Dungeon Characters - Infinite strategic possibilities!
I have been a strategy game enthusiast since I was a kid, and although I love Chess and other ancient strategy games, I had often wondered what would happen if you combine different games together. When I was in college, I used to love Dungeons and Dragons, and I got the idea of putting Chess in the Dungeon - oooh! So I created a new game based on that idea, set up a massive board using other game parts and had all my buddies over playing the game every weekend. Since then, I have created a variety of games based on this idea, and have now created a pre-release, working version of it that you an play right now!
This is just a fun and creative project that I have wanted to do for a long time - an online version of my old board game. As it grows, it will always be free to play, so there is no real profit here in this project for me, just the challenge of building it, and then the fun of playing it with others. But there will be some deep thought needed to add the features to complete the full idea. I already know that adding rooms, creating the artificial intelligence necessary to handle computer generated players, adding community features and ongoing expansion of the game will require many late nights and pounds of coffee.
If you would like to help, I have put together an awesome rewards program and encourage you to participate. I am primarily looking for people interested in the project, insiders to request new features, and funding (at least $500) for my excessive coffee needs, time to spend more hours on the project, and to help with the publishing of a new book on ancient strategy games and their contribution to civilization, which I am working on to go with the game! Also, the more money pledged, the more time I can devote to this project, and the quicker the game will be completed!
More Details and the Game available at: DungeonChess.com - play the Alpha 2 version of the game with a friend on MS Explorer or Firefox web browsers. Dungeon Chess - Always Free To Play! Infinite Rooms and Players coming in the Beta 1.0 release, with your help!!!
