Below are the details, to quote: We launched Pure Chess on PSN earlier this year, and it's the first chess game available for download on both PS3 and PS Vita.
ater this summer, we'll be releasing a new downloadable chess set which will be offered free to all PSN users - and that's where you come in!
We want you to help inspire a name for the upcoming set, which you can do by submitting an idea via Twitter (see full instructions below). Here's an exclusive sneak peek of the upcoming downloadable set to get your creative juices flowing...
The set is available in both plastic and metal materials and will be playable in any of the three locations featured in the main game (Museum, Study, and Penthouse).
But what should we call this new set? Tweet us your naming suggestion to @RipstoneGames and include #PureChessComp so we can find your submissions! If you want to enter multiple times, just send multiple Tweets.
We'll select 50 random participants (North America and EU entries only) who will will receive a copy of the game for either PS3 or PS Vita, along with the 'Park' and 'Forest' DLC packs which are already available in the PlayStation Store.
If you win, make sure you're following @RipstoneGames so we can DM you your winning code! We will notify random winners within 21 days of the closing date.
You'll need to be quick - you can start providing name suggestions via Twitter now, but be sure to send an entry by this Friday, July 13th at 11:59pm Pacific Time, after which we will stop taking suggestions.
Pure Chess aims to reflect the beauty and depth of the widely respected game. Chess is one of the world's most played, popular and recognized games and to reflect this, Pure Chess was developed with the aid of a chess Grandmaster, the highest title a chess player can attain.
Created by independent games developers VooFoo Studios, the title aims to appeal to a wide audience with various tutorials to allow beginners to take part, improve their chess skills and become a Grandmaster in their own right.
Pure Chess is a classic strategy board game which is brought to life with stunning graphics and a series of interactive game modes.
