Four Kings One War was developed and released on May 30, 2019 by StaplesVR. Four Kings One War is a 1 or 2 player strategy game inspired by chess.

Each player controls two armies as though they were one and get’s two moves per turn. This opens up guerrilla style tactics and hidden attacks. This is strategy for the modern mind, outside the 64th square.

This is a turn based, single or multiplayer strategy game designed for PC and Mac. With a variety of environments to choose from you can do battle deep in a native New Zealand bush where the battle arena is the size of a house and the pieces as tall as an average person. Or you may choose to do battle on the smaller combat arena nestled next to a spectacular waterfall or in the underground abyss. Users can go to the glow worm cave to watch replays of their games, hone their skills and watch strategy videos.

The game tutorial explains the camera movements which rotate, zoom and pan over the game board. The various camera angles allow a player to better see any possible strategies.

Pawns have the option to move 3 spaces every turn, and the knight gets to do a double hop, basically move twice (with some restrictions) when it is played. Having the option of 2 moves per turn, not restricted to any army, completely elevates the level of strategy involved – hidden attacks, traps, when to exchange pieces are all aspects which you have plan 3-4-5 steps ahead.
