Brazilian independent studio Minimol Games is proud to announce that their upcoming game Chessaramawill be launched in Q2 2023 on consoles and PC and has become an official sponsor of the world's top online chess tournament, Play Magnus Group's flagship Champions Chess Tour, for the remaining event in the 2022 season and the duration of the 2023 season. Chessarama will also sponsor chess24's coverage of the FIDE World Championship cycle.
In Chessarama, the players will be able to enjoy a world of premium minimalist games, unlock collectibles and compete against each other by climbing the leaderboard. The reimagined chess game scenarios include cultivating a farmyard, fighting a dragon and fighting as a legendary Ronin in feudal Japan.
The story of Chessarama cannot be understood without Raphael Dias, a young Brazilian developer and Ph.D. in Physics who has been marked by his discovery of Chess when he was 14. Chess drove not only him to have a more structured mindset and discipline in his life as student and professional, but also taught him values like respect and patience. His passion for video games came into the mix with Chess in 2019, when he decided to found the independent studio Minimol Games with the mission of developing minimalist and innovative chess-based games.
After 30 small games launched, over 250k copies sold and an average positive review ratio over 85%, Minimol Games is developing their most ambitious title to date, Chessarama. Chessarama is a collection of original chess-inspired turn-based games with their own rules, dioramas and designs.
Play Magnus Group and Minimol Games will work together to make chess accessible and attractive to a wider audience through Chessarama. The aim is fully in line with the wider objectives of the Play Magnus Group.
Chessarama launches on consoles & PC via Steam in Q2 2023!
