This is my first time attempting 7DRL and I came up with the "genius" idea of a roguelike but you are chess pieces and follow chess move rules.

3 cheers for #DragonRuby! I went through this one in a playthrough here -

I thought the mechanic was really interesting of being able to flip between Rook and Knight.

I did experience a lot of difficulty trying to get the game to register my mouse clicks, but I’m wondering if it’s because I was playing the web version vs. the desktop.

Thanks for making an entry, and hope you had fun putting it together!
