@Numzyx Thank you! Both of those took a long time to develop, hehe.

I've played this before and... it shows a bit! i won 27-20. Anyway, it's an amazing game and really well made!

I played this. Music is great pieces are well rendered etc. However I've no idea how the game works. It seems somewhat similar to othello/reversi?

@SquidLight Kinda, except the movement rules are different.

So, on each turn, you can either move a piece one or two spaces away both vertically and horizontally (imagine a 5x5 square around each piece as all the legal moves it can make). If you've moved adjacent to the piece, the piece is copied, otherwise it jumps. In any case, once the piece gets to its destination, every piece adjacent to it flips to its color. Winner is the one with more chips once the board is filled.
