Hello itch, it's nice to meet you. My name is Doc and I'm a game designer, artist, musician, and yo-yoer living in San Francisco. I've been a fan of the itch.io community for many years and I'm happy to finally share a game here of my own.
One-Dimensional Chess is a chess variant that takes place in a single row. It started off as a joke, but turned out to be surprisingly fun.
I initially launched the game in 2018 on Gumroad, but after a very ugly exchange between Gumroad and Box Brown, an artist they work with for their branding, I decided to jump ship. Itch.io shared a tweet pledging not to support NFTs, so I decided it was time to finally bring my game over here.
1D Chess is a solid game. It's replayable, fun for all skill levels, and surprisingly strategic. I've playtested the hell out of it and I don't expect any changes to the rules. I would, however, love feedback on how to better express the rules and make them more accessible. If anyone would like to help translate the 1D Chess rules, I'd really appreciate it.
