You can literally smell the excitement here at VooFoo towers and it’s not (only) due to the lack of personal hygiene time we’ve had of late! We’ve teamed up with publisher Ripstone to bring you our latest, greatest version of Pure Chess which hits PS4 this week and we’re extremely proud of our new baby.
If you don’t know who we are, VooFoo Studios is a small team of passionate developers based in sunny Birmingham right in the heart of England. We’ve always prided ourselves on making highly playable, photo-realistic games and thanks to the power of the PS4 hardware, we’ve been able to turn the dial up to 11!
Displayed at 1080p and running at a silky-smooth 60 frames per seconds, Pure Chess on PlayStation 4 is a visual tour-de-force. We’ve doubled the texture sizes, added many extra layers of post-processing, added contact shadows, and applied ultra-realistic depth-of-field… which is a rather boring way of saying that this is a seriously good looking chess game! Couple this with a massively improved custom networking system to provide a much slicker on-line experience and we’re confident you’ll love Pure Chess just as much as we do.
The game is available on 16th April priced at £4.99/€ 5.99 but you can also get your hands on the best value Complete Bundle for £9.99/€11.99 which includes all the DLC. PlayStation Plus users can look forward to some cheeky discounts at launch too!
