This game was an attempt to create a tower defense game using the rules of chess. I have a windows, mac and linux build here: https://iangogo.itch.io/chess-for-millennials
I made this project for the Miz game jam. The idea behind the jam was that everyone gets the same limited art pallet and has to try and make a game with it. I decided to use the provided chess pieces plus some character sprites to make a tower defense game.
This was my first ever attempt at a tower defense game. I think it turned out rather well, aside from the issues I had trying to create a web build of the game.
Every time I tried to create a web build, the audio would become corrupted (even though this wouldn’t happen with the windows build). I also ran into many issues with the screen scaling and converting coordinates from the screen to the world space. It would work fine if either the window was made wider or taller. In the event the screen was made both wider and taller, everything would strangely break. I spent many hours trying to fix this but ran out of time as it is a jam entry.
This is going to be my last showcase for a while, I’ve decided to stop doing game jams and instead just focus on my large project which I hope to share with you all in the future.
Let me know if you have any feedback!
