Bruce McNeish, CTO of Cohort Studios, comments“Realising that a chess simulator had not yet been released as a PlayStation®Network minis, we saw the opportunity to take this classic game and add a polished Cohort finish to it. We wanted to create the complete chess package; by including extensive tutorials and progressive levels of challenges, we set out to make it accessible to all levels of ability.  Extremely happy with the finished product; the title has been created to fill a gap in the minis portfolio”.
