"Rooks Keep is a PC based, fantasy melee deathmatch/arena game. Best described as "UT with swords", players will battle it out in a selection of game-modes, across a variery of maps. The list of game-modes includes traditional Deathmatch and Team-Deathmatch, Conversion(kill your enemy to get them on your team), Combat and Classic Chess, and more. Players will get control of two factions of six characters each, based on traditional Chess archetypes(Pawn, Knight, etc) and engage in battles using a diversity of offensive and defensive abilities and skills. Pawns will be skewered, mighty Rooks will smash their opponents with massive clubs, and sinister Beasts will tear into their foes with tenacity. Games can be played solo against AI opponents, in LAN or online multiplayer or a combination. Up to 32 players are allowed in all non-Chess modes. Players will fight in detailed, full 3D environments that use the power of the Unreal® Development Kit. Mod support is intended for Rooks Keep."

Looks pretty cool. I wonder if the chess mode can be played single player against the computer? Indie multiplayer only games have a hard time keeping active, so a single player chess option would be nice.

In any case, voted yes.

From what I understand there's a computer opponent you can play against. No telling how smart it is, though.

UPDATE:

This game is awesome. But holy hell is it graphics intensive if you turn everything up.

The developers released the source code or something a little while ago, so making mods is now pretty easy (as was intended by the devs). Sweet!

UT with swords? Sounds like prime LAN material. Too bad I don't really get a chance to LAN anymore...
