What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We choose to release Non-Euclidean Chess in Early Access to provide users with a playable, enjoyable game while we work on developing the more lofty goals of the project.

Certain things about a Chess engine can always be improved, and since we can't just copy Stockfish for our AI, we hope for both patience and input from the community as we improve our game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan for Non-Euclidean Chess to be in Early Access until Spring-Summer 2022.”

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

“While you will find that Non-Euclidean Chess currently has many Chess variants, there is more we want to do.

While some of the specifics of our plans are yet unannounced, we will be working on
- Better AI
- Community Variant API with Workshop Support
- More Chess Variants”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version includes all advertised features on the store page - playable Singleplayer and Multiplayer for many interesting Chess Variants, including:
- N-Player Chess
- Hyperbolic (Poincare Disk) Chess
- Cubic Chess
- Toroidal Chess
- Battle Royale Chess
- Chesseract
- Growth Chess
- Slider Chess”

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

“We plan to keep the Early Access price until we release, at which point there will be some price increase.”

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

“We deeply value community input for our game.

If there is a specific Chess variant that is requested during the development process, we may implement it; or, at the very least, we may design our API such that it can be implemented by the community!”
