Experiment 7 is develop, with license from Wizards of the Coast, a Dungeons & Dragons-themed virtual-reality Chess game. Dungeon Chess (for Samsung Gear VR and Oculus Rift) will feature animated game-play, a variety of environments (like the Yawning Portal tavern), and iconic D&D monsters as Chess pieces (e.g, dragons as kings, beholders as rooks, drow as pawns, and mind-flayers as bishops).
Remote multiplayer and AI opponents will be available.
Release of Dungeon Chess is planned for later this year.
If you can’t wait for later this year, jocly.com already offers chess and a number of fairy variants (dragons around !) for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift (Samsung Gear VR and Google DayDream for later this month) with remote multiplay and AI.
Since this uses the upcoming but still experimental WebVR standard, you’ll need a developer version of Firefox or Chrome: https://webvr.rocks
