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.
Primary to Rooks Keep is the 3rd-person combat system involving quick and slow attacks, blocking, parrying, dodging and a selection of upgradeable skills. Each character also features their own unique skill. In addition, a basic character skill system allows asymetric fights, eg: The Rook is more powerful than the Pawn. Players can use skill points to either use a more powerful piece or upgrade their current one.
Rooks Keep features a selection of game-modes, from free-for-all and team based modes, to Chess variations:
-Factions & Theme:
Rooks Keep currently features two unique factions; the forces of the Kingdom and the beasts of Darkspawn. The game is set in a varierty of detailed fantasy environments, featuring maps for both deathmatch and Chess modes. Players will get control of six character per side, based on traditional Chess pieces (Pawn, Rook, Queen, etc) and each uniquely animated and ready to commit hideous acts of carnage.
Rooks Keep also features an extensive blood and gore system for particularly messy battles.
-Multiplayer & AI:
Singleplayer, Online and LAN is supported for all game-types, where up to 32? players can fight it out in all the non-Chess modes. AI bots can be added to all deathmatch game-modes and there is even a slightly functional Chess AI! Alternatively, players can simply play on the same computer in the traditional Chess mode.
Rooks Keep is running on Epic Games™ excellent Unreal® Development Kit™ which allows us to create great looking environments and pieces.
We will be revealing more information and features as the project evolves, so stay tuned.
Highest Rated (2 agree) 10/10
All features work as advertised, and there's a lots of awesome features that's missing in other AAA titles, like mod support, LAN, and even gamepad support.
That and it's extremely fun.

Some entertaining stories and interesting takes on the Half-Life universe. I'm not much of a YouTube person, but I found them interesting.
