Chessarama brings ALL THE CHESS to Xbox and PC

Given that we’ve played some classic chess puzzles in the Chess Knights series, slayed others in Shotgun King: The Final Checkmate, and seen the entire formula re-invented in Chess Brain: Dark Troops, it makes perfect sense for a single game to include a number of different ways to play the ancient game. Chessarama – from developers Minimol Games – does just this, with eight unique ways to enjoy chess. Football chess? Sign us up!

Eight Captivating Games

Available today on Xbox consoles and PC, Chessarama packages eight different chess-based strategy games under one roof, ensuring you can switch up how you wish to play on the fly. Each game will have its own bespoke theme, as well as countless challenges to complete. Of course, the option for ‘Classic Chess’ would go amiss if not included, so we are thankful that in Chessarama you can play the standard game.

For example, in Soccer Chess, you must think multiple moves ahead in order to penetrate your opposition’s line of defence, in order to score a spectacular goal. Alternatively, the Dragon Slayer mode has you corner a towering dragon using your pieces, with each move the dragon takes destroying any of your unprotected pieces. Further still, Lady Ronin mixes chess with sokoban, tasking you with eliminating enemy pieces by piling on the pressure.

Each game mode requires a different way of thinking, making Chessarama the perfect game to truly master chess. And as for the modes of ‘Farm Life’, ‘Street Soccer’, ‘Last Stand’, ‘Knight Supreme’ and ‘Pawn Mania’, well you’ll just have to find out for yourself!

Hear from the devs direct

“People may not know that Minimol Games has created over 30 puzzle games over the last several years, and Chessarama is our most ambitious yet,” said Raphael Dias, CEO and Game Director at Minimol Games. “Each variation requires you to rewire your brain in an all new way that makes it equally engrossing for chess experts and newcomers alike! We’re so excited to share the fruits of our labor with you all today!”

“Raphael is a chess enthusiast with a Ph.D. in physics, which has made him and his team a formidable purveyor of puzzle games and Chessarama might be their magnum opus,” said Ashley Ringrose, Studio Head at SMG Studio. “Chessarama is an extraordinarily clever puzzle game, but what’s more, it also has a ton of personality. The team at Minimol have really outdone themselves making their robust variations of chess brimming with character and color! We’d urge anyone who likes puzzle games to try Chessarama. Warning: they may get sucked in!”

I'm an avid gamer who will play pretty much anything... but stick an open world or adventure game in front of me and I'm more than happy.
