What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Chessia, in its current state, has some core features implemented. However, as Chessia Developers Team, we are not done yet and want to add more.

The features we are planning to add:
- Chess 960
- Online Multiplayer
- Steam Achievements”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect to release the game fully somewhere between January 2018 - March 2018.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will be a smooth experience with some of the existing features improved and some more features added such as online multiplayer. We also plan on adding support for Linux and OSX.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Existing Features
- Single player
- Local multiplayer
- Analyze
- Easily changing chess engine options
- Installing other chess engines (UCI)

Although these features are added, they need polishing and improvement.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The game will be priced the same even after Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Getting feedback is very valuable for a small indie team like us. With that said, while we plan on improving and polishing the game, we also want to add features that the community wants.”

Version 0.30 is Live

Hello Dear Community

It has been some time since our last update and we are excited to announce version 0.30. In the last update, we said you can expect an improved interface, more analyze features and online gameplay.

Since then we have worked hard to bring you all 3 of them. However working on analyze took longer than we expected as it required a lot of rework. As a result online gameplay delayed. We are working hard to deliver these features to you as soon as possible.

All things aside, we hope you will take a liking to the new interface as well as new analyze features and improvements.

Here is what this update contains;
* UI rework; animations, code, textures, widgets
* Improved Analyze and Replay
* Added ForceQuickPlay feature where you can force the ai to play a move when certain seconds passes
* Added functionality to continue last game if it hasn't finished yet
* Added functionality to save analyze results to a PGN file
* Captured pieces are now placed on the sides
* Improved how castling is handled
* Added support for DX 10 for older GPUs
* MoveArrow is now properly positioned and scaled
* Prevented chess engine settings warning from showing up every time
* Very slight performance improvements
* Made it so that coffees at the side will always be visible
* Changed spectator start rotation so that it looks from Light sides perspective at the start
* Changed side names from "White/Black" to "Light/Dark" as some players noted that they feel uneasy with the former ones
* Fixed saving wrong information inside PGN files in some cases
* Fixed a bug where en passant was seen as invalid move if the checking piece is the target of en passant
* Fixed a bug where king could still capture an enemy piece if it was standing behind the king when looked from the piece protecting the enemy piece
* Fixed a bug where options from previous chess engines would still be around with later chess engines
* Fixed a bug related to standard algebraic notation when an ambiguous move happens, which caused pgn files to be corrupt, hence un-analyzable
* Fixed looking from light player' perspective when dark side is selected

Also, here is what you can expect from next versions to come;
* Online Gameplay
* Improvements to Multiplayer
* Many small improvements
* Support for OSX and Linux

Until next time, have fun and take care.
