    Hey everyone, I am excited to announce the pre-order of my newest game, Not Chess, a puzzling chess-like experience. Coming 8 Dec 2020

    App Store: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/not-chess/id1535659343




    Wait, if this game is NOT chess, then what is it? It's a mind blowing puzzle game with some simple chess rules and a few special ingredients to make it fun and challenging for everyone!

    •How to play?

    You start with one single piece. Across the board, there are a few chess pieces strategically placed. When you take a chess piece, you become that piece and inherit its abilities. The level is complete when you collect the coin.

    •Who is this for?

    It doesn’t matter if you have no idea how to play chess or if you are a chess grandmaster. This game is for everyone. The tutorial covers all the required information in a fun, interactive way.

    •Challenging?

    While this game is not chess, some levels will have a higher difficulty, requiring careful planning and strategy, making this a great way to put your brain muscle to work.

    •Features:

    - 3 Difficulty levels: easy, medium and hard; with limited moves to complete the levels.
    - Zen color palettes and relaxing soundtrack
    - Game Center.
    - No ads, no in-app purchases; buy it once and enjoy it forever.
    - Haptic Feedback.
    - Optimized for all devices;
    - Simple controls, suitable for any age.
    - Play Offline, no internet connection required to play
    - No violence, stress-free; play at your own pace.

    Looks great! A definite download. Will there be any kind of endless mode? How many levels? Or are they procedurally generated?

    I’m mostly interested in this, but time-limited puzzle games are generally a turn-off for me.

    are the time limits like “Whoops, you took too long, start over!” Or more like “You weren’t fast enough, so only 2/3 stars”?

    Thanks! Right now there are 60 levels, planning to have around 100 before the release date; all handcrafted. No endless mode planned for now.


    After much consideration, I decided to get rid of the time limits, or at least make it an optional feature. Thanks for the feedback; many beta testers felt it’s a bit off as well.
