Cooperative Chess is part of what has retroactively been termed a "molasses jam" run by the Bay Area Dev Collective. The theme of the jam was to make a violent genre non-violent. Somehow the idea of co-op chess came up during a brainstorming session, and I knew immediately that I had to figure out how to make it work. And now you and a friend get to experience it yourselves.

The other molasses game jam games are also on steam:
