Rooks Keep is a deathmatch arena game featuring Chess as one of the game-modes.
Descend into a brutal tournament where factions of sinister knights and grotesque beasts battle for domination in bloody arena matches and furious melee brawls. Crush opponents with hammers and shields, rend flesh with razor sharp claws and slice off heads with swords and axes.
In Rooks Keep, players will maim their competitors in both a selection of deathmatch-arena game-modes such as ‘Deathmatch’, ‘Team-Deathmatch’, ‘Conversion’, ‘Chess’, ‘Last-Man-Standing’ and ‘Combat Chess’. Play solo, jump into multiplayer matches, or add AI opponents to squash under-foot in both single and multiplayer. You can even use 3rd party Chess engines, such as Stockfish, which is included with RK.
The game is set in a uniquely styled fantasy world, where factions battle ceaselessly for your entertainment.
