Usurper turns Chess into a deck-building roguelike

By - | Views: 29,957

If you love strategy games, board games, deck-builders and roguelikes you may want to keep a little eye on Usurper, an upcoming game from Rogue Brain Studios that releases later this year. Currently aiming for a "Q2" release.

Offering the classic with a modern twist you start off with only a King, and then work your way up to a full army by purchasing pieces from your deck. Sounds like an interesting spin! The developer mentions it will have a full single-player mode against the AI, along with local and online multiplayer.

That looks interesting.
I don't generally end up playing them, but I just love games like this that take some familiar classic and put a twist on it, and I'm glad they exist.
