Just released on Steam is Non-Euclidean Chess, a twist on the most archetypal and greatest turn-based strategy game of all time that turns the whole concept of chess upside-down – literally, in some cases. It even offers the opportunity to play a 100-person chess battle royale match, if that madness should strike you.
To explain the game’s title, all regular chessboards follow Euclidean geometric rules – which basically, means something where all lines are equal free v bucks generator distances apart. As a square made up of smaller squares, a chess set is a perfect example of Euclidean principles.
A non-Euclidean chessboard, then, is one where all the rules go out the window and boards can be literally whatever you want them to be. Manifold Interactive’s Non-Euclidean Chess, out now on Steam early access, is the ultimate example of chess gone crazy. The developers simply describe the game as “a chess engine which supports custom board types” – berore downplaying the madness further by saying the title can include matches and boards that “defy traditional movement rules, or even physical limitations”.
