80w ago - VooFoo Studios Game Designer Tam Finlay has announced today that Pure Chess will be out tomorrow for both PS3 and PS Vita platforms with details below.
To quote: Enough with shooting people in the face. Instead, how about a game that requires mental agility, smart reactions and tactical planning while also bringing you an air of sophistication?
That is exactly what we set out to achieve with Pure Chess, which brings the beauty and intellectual depth of one of the world's oldest, and greatest games to PS Vita and PS3 tomorrow.
If you've never played chess before, Pure Chess will teach you everything you need to know from basics to advanced techniques. If you think of yourself as a bit of a chess master, match your wits against our AI. There are 10 difficulty levels to choose from, and a chess Grandmaster verified the top levels.
It's great fun trying to improve your skills against the finely tuned AI, but winning against your friends and family is even sweeter!
So for those of you who feel like flexing your chess prowess against others, you can take on another player in a local two-player game or challenge your PSN friends to an asynchronous Play by Mail game.
This means you don't need to set aside a big chunk of time for a whole game. You can take your move, send it to your friend and then get on with your day. This is actually how I prefer to play on my PS Vita, as I really like being able to jump in and out of games when I've got a spare minute here and there.
From the outset, we wanted to make Pure Chess look amazing. It's a game that deserves to be appreciated in elegant surroundings so we've made three beautiful locations for you to play in.
Our artists take real pride in everything they make, from the stunning backgrounds to the finely crafted piece sets. I'm sure you'll agree, chess has never looked so good! The team has also been hard at work creating some amazing DLC that will enhance your collection.
