Chaotic chess arcade battle arena!
In Chess Bonk, each player controls a lil chess master who can run around and pick up and put down pieces anywhere on the board. Each piece is given a "command" which controls its actions.
Game is still under development.
Currently we only have local multiplayer battle so you'll need 2 or more players. You can use controllers or up to 3 people can share a single keyboard (WASD, Arrows, Numpad).

Bonk the enemy King to win.
You can only pick up or command your pieces.
You can't pick up the King.
If a piece gets bonk'd you can pick them up and bring them back to your "bench" to heal.
If a piece is standing on your piece then you can't pick it up.
Pawns can attack in all four diagonals.
Advance - attack anything and scoot forward each turn
Overwatch - stay still and attack anything it can
Defend - if it is threatened, it will attack, otherwise it will try to move to safety
Hide - if threatened, try to move to safety
Nothing - won't do anything

WHY Controllers Required?
why not keyboard Controls?
Yo, we are still working on the game.
I just uploaded our latest post-jam build which supports a few different keyboard control schemes. We still only have local multiplayer, but at least with the latest build, up to 3 people can share a keyboard.
