About

What is Chesster

Chesster is a match 3 game based on the rules of chess. The objective is simple, connect 3 like pieces horizontally or vertically for points. However, the pieces can only move like their counterparts in chess. Chesster will be a stand out puzzler because it of it's slower, strategy oriented gameplay (not racing against the clock), crisp professional graphics and rich period inspired music!

The game has been in development for two months now. Our team is two strong including myself (artist and designer) and a talented programmer. We both have day jobs and have come together to create this game in the hours when we used to watch TV, talk to our friends and family and sleep.

What's the Plan?

To finish Chesster for the PC for digital distribution, preferably on Steam, and then porting it over to the iPad. BUT, we need your help to really push the game to its fullest! We need to get some hardware and update software to make development faster and more efficient. We need to hire a composer to create a rich aural environment. We need some Apple hardware for porting Chesster to the Apple App store. We need YOU to reach our ultimate goal.

Keep in mind that our stated financial goal is our minimum target, and money pledged over our goal will go towards polishing the game even further, which means more for you! Thanks for your time, and hopefully, your contribution.
