In short: WizardChess is Deckbuilding Chess. The roguelike gamplay includes procedurally generated maps, randomized encounters, individual unit modifiers and permadeath. It is designed to challenge the player strategically through short runs (20-30 minutes) with gameplay that is simply to pick up, but near impossible to master!

Please consider supporting us on Patreon to get access to the game for as little as $9 USD.

Key Features

  • Deeply Strategic: Position specialized units in turn-based combat, and use unique skills to take enemy pieces.
  • Build your Army: Recruit, upgrade, sacrifice, trade and gamble your units away to create the ultimate build.
  • Carve a Path Navigate an array of room-types in whatever order you choose to explore, fight, and further enhance your build.
  • Battle the Fae: Each run ends with a unique boss battle. Overcome stacked odds with whatever units and mental energy you have left to spare.
  • Distinct Biomes: Chosen at the start of a run, each biome features unique rooms, enemies, hazards, bosses, and other modifiers!
  • Massively Replayable: Every run is procedurally generated, down to the encounters, enemies, units, statistics and even the AI.




Introducing "The Bard":


This is you! An egomaniacal adventurer determined to leave their mark on history. Somehow(TM) The Bardhas been invited to the annual WizardChess tournament, a contrived battle of magic and tactics hosted by the Fae, for the Fae.

The Fae have watched over this world since time eternal, gently steering destiny along its tracks. To be honest though, there's not that much to do. Nothing of any Fae-level importance has happened in hundreds of years... Until now.

Step into the shoes ofThe Bard, master WizardChess and scribble your name into every history book. Your prize for competing in their tournament? A boon from the FaeQueen herself. The Song of The Fae is yet to be written.

Key Features

  • Deeply Strategic: it's chess meets turn-based tactics, one move can (and will) change the entire game. 
  • Build your Army: recruit, sacrifice, trade and gamble your units away to create the ultimate build. 
  • Battle the Fae: use the power of board games to defeat the Fae in unique boss battles. 
  • Massively Replayable: every run in SoTF is procedurally generated, down to the encounters, enemies, units, statistics and even the AI.
