♚ Chess Twist

Online Demo Wishlist on Steam Press Kit


Chess Twist is a mind-bending chess game, where straight lines turn and diagonals fork. Hundreds of different boards with new strategies hidden in plain sight. Will you see them before your opponent does?

New Strategies

Every piece moves the same way as in classic chess. But the board is very different, and that opens the door to new opportunities.

On this board, the white rook can put the opposite king in check without moving:

Or here, you only need to move a pawn to have the black bishop attack the white king:

In Chess Twist, each board has unique features, and it's up to you to make best use of them.

And you can always drag any piece around to get a better intuition on how it moves at different positions.

Procedurally Generated Boards

Every board is different. This is not a game where you can learn openings. This is now an observation game.

Thousands of Puzzles

Want a mind-bending challenge without going through a full game? Our puzzles are a great way to get your gears working. In this one, you can checkmate with black in 4 moves or less. Can you see how?
