In roguelike chess adventure Chogue you hunt the king

500 Years In The Making: Chess 2 Coming To PC

Chess is a pretty good game, I hear, but I'm not really into retro gaming. After literally centuries (not to mention countless mods and patches) someone has finally made a proper sequel, so I might give it a crack. While the original Chess only had one faction, Chess 2: The Sequel adds another five armies with different rules, along with duels and a new victory…
