Title pretty much sums it up. I just played about 3 hours of this game at my friend's place and was totally hooked.
It's a first person immersive sim/checkers game (!) where you level up and unlock the next parts of the castle you're in by playing a game of checkers (with lots of added gore). Oh, and it's REALLY hard. Apparently the guy who made it was influenced by From Software, particularly King's Field, so don't expect a cakewalk.
Anyway, I hadn't seen anything about this game anywhere and thought I should bring it up. It's a shame it's only on XBLA or I'd totally buy it.
And here I thought I was the only person who played XBLA indie games. Go figure. It looks interesting...
Yup, this game is amazing for the 80 ms points.... downloaded and playing now !!
There seem to be dozens of lobbys going on right now, at least this weekend. I have destroyed a bunch of people, and even helped out a few in their castle exploration. Very fun indeed. I'm not good at writing reviews but, there is plenty on the internet about this gem.
I get my ass kicked by it, personally. But I also haven't played checkers since I was in 3rd grade, so it might just take me a while to get used to it. Still an awesome game.
If i had a Xbox i would totally play this.
Shame I don't.
