The Steps as we know them

The Steps As We Know Them is a nice restricted-movement path-finding puzzle game using some movements as per usual of chess pieces. While it uses the chess pieces and in some ways imitate the standard moving patterns of the pieces, the actual game has very little to do with chess. The game could be given a completely different skin and would still make perfect sense without the chess pieces.

all I know about chess is how each piece moves, and it’s more than enough for the steps as we know them. in fact, you can go in completely blind, as the game will tell you all the relevant rules as they come up.

6 worlds are laid out like chess boards connected with colored areas serving as separate puzzles. each world features a different chess piece, though their movement doesn’t immediately or always match the real thing. for example, the bishop moves like a pawn until it steps on a special purple tile that unleashes its signature diagonal move.

Interesting mechanics so far. I like the card as a movement and “special attack” resource, and the very cool “Alter Terrain” concept by trashing extra cards at the end of turn.

I’m also into perma-death endless dungeon runs, so I’m not sure what to expect after the initial “forced” campaign with the Rocky Warrors. Hopefully the devs did put in endless journey mode, until our party dies.

Finally, I did stream it on Twitch to make gameplay vids, but saw no Game Category to further publicize the game, so if the game’s title can be added to Twitch, would be great.
