Official Description (Ad Blurb)

The Ouroboros King combines the strategic depth of chess with the build variety and replayability of roguelikes. Assemble a formidable army, discover powerful relics, and buy surprising gadgets to defeat the Coven.

Core Gameplay

  • Build the Ultimate Army: Combine classic and new chess pieces, relics that give them bonuses, and consumable items that grant you temporary advantages to create a formidable army.

  • Perfect Your Strategy: You can only move one piece per turn, so you must choose carefully. Make your troops work together to obliterate the enemy army.

  • Another Chance: If you're defeated you can go back to action on another timeline, where the path to victory will change: different map, different enemies, different rewards...

Other Features

  • Lots of end-game options to dial up the difficulty to insane levels.

  • Same-device multiplayer, challenge your friends to chess games with lots of unique pieces.

  • Chess-based tactics, easy to learn and hard to master.

  • 15-45 minute runs, good for a short break and also longer sessions.

  • No gatekeeping, all the content is unlocked from the start. Win or die based on your skills.

  • No need to learn any chess openings or study anything.

  • All in game text is available in LANGUAGE
