Rooks Keep is a PC based, fantasy melee deathmatch/arena game. Best described as "UT with swords", players will battle it out in a selection of game-modes, across a variery of maps. The list of game-modes includes traditional Deathmatch and Team-Deathmatch, Conversion(kill your enemy to get them on your team), Combat and Classic Chess, and more. Players will get control of two factions of six characters each, based on traditional Chess archetypes(Pawn, Knight, etc) and engage in battles using a diversity of offensive and defensive abilities and skills. Pawns will be skewered, mighty Rooks will smash their opponents with massive clubs, and sinister Beasts will tear into their foes with tenacity. Games can be played solo against AI opponents, in LAN or online multiplayer or a combination. Up to 32 players are allowed in all non-Chess modes. Players will fight in detailed, full 3D environments that use the power of the Unreal® Development Kit. Mod support is intended for Rooks Keep.

Ok, yay! I got a response back from support, and they say they fixed it! :)
You'll need to reinstall the game apparently, to get the new settings.

Apologies this took so long, truly sorry :\

RuneStorm, could you possibly get this game working via the Desura client? I have to keep reinstalling it. I'd prefer to play it through Desura so I can keep track of it as well as my other games and their updates. Thank you.

I second this, big time. The reverting to "Not Ready" in the Desura client after restart of client is an error on the developer's end. It almost always a problem with a script that has a mispelling or some other small error. This issue has manifested with several titles where the developer needs to correct the error and resubmit, then usually requires one final re-install for the users. This will continue be a giant hassle in this game until the developer addresses it, but it's been months.

Are you out there, Developer? This is still a frustrating problem with your software - having to go through the re-install process between every Desura launch.

Just an update on this: I've been trying tons of **** to try and get it going, but so far no luck. Still gonna keep going though! Been pulling hair out over this one :\ Really doesn't help that our upload speed is about 20-40kb... Will keep you posted when I find the cure!

Not sure if I should post this here, but I bought the game in the build a greenlight bundle from groupees, and the cd-key provided doesn't work for the game for some odd reason (in-game that is, desura detected it perfectly and it is already in my games list)

Anyone know what I can do?

By the way, the game seems to be good and I feel that this one is some of those which gets better as time passes, can't wait for a mutator that allows total mutilation (Blade: Edge of Darkness anyone? :P).

Your modding talent precced you and it was great, hopefully you manage to get the same feeling on gaming industry, I desire you the best (at least right now I feel like you did it, I hope I'm not wrong ^^u)

Nothing more, nothing less, I hope I can fix this and play with others soon, anyway, good luck with the times to come ^^.
