The concept of Khan was inspired by ideas from Conn Iggulden's epic saga, Wolf of the Plains, and oddly enough, spurred by a funny circumstance watching Derren Brown outwit a group of Britain's top chess players. My interest in game design over the past 20 years has made this project possible.
Many thanks to the myriad chess programmers whose open source code and ideas presented has been useful in engine design, in particular, praise for:
Winglet (Stef Luijten)
Stockfish (Tord Romstad, Marco Costalba, Joona Kiiski)
Arasan (Jon Dart)
Crafty (Robert Hyatt)
Fruit (Fabien Letouzey)
and the gui client builders:
Lantern (Michael Adams)
Jin chess (Alexander Maryanovsky)
Final note: Khan is evolving. New pieces/movements/game rules and configurations are works in progress...
