A downloadable game for Windows

Grandpa can be hard to talk to. We're practically in two different worlds, two different eras.

But through this simple game, we've forged a connection.

And through our time together, two things are for certain:

  • I am his grandchild.
  • And he can always beat me at chess.

Use mouse click to input moves.

Use ears to listen to music.

Use bottom to sit still.

Hey nukeemninja, we have some bugs to sort out from the Game Jam rush. The biggest being the one you're having where the Chess AI does not start properly on some computers. As for controls, you can click on the piece to move and then click on the space you want to move to. (We have code for the movable spaces to glow but it wasn't finished in time for the game jam build.)

We're trying to figure out the bugs and plan to update the game over this next weekend. Hopefully, check it out again after then.

And thanks again for playing!

Afraid I'm getting this issue too - Will you be making a note on this page when it's fixed? Looking forward to trying your game.

Thanks for reporting your problem to us! And yes, we'll post on the page when the bugs have been fixed and a new build is up.
