Rook Trader, an interesting and occasionally alarming internet game
A game where you play as a bird, or possibly as a chess piece, or somehow both. You want shiny and warm things for your nest. Fly to other nests and negotiate trades for your existing shiny and warm things. Accrue wealth. Crash the economy for fun and profit.

Move only in straight horizontal or vertical lines. Flying in diagonal lines is an affront to the Bishop, and will not be tolerated in this parliament. Use your natural powers of charm and salesmanship to inflate your resources. Unleash barely-tested-yet-somehow-legal pheromone gases upon your neighbours to influence their prices. Experiment with wild new financial instruments. Consume tea, biscuits.

The first 21 levels are online, with the plan being to add more levels each week. This is the first time posting it outside of Facebooking to friends and family and one or two Project Wonderful ads, so I'd love to get some non-friends-and-family feedback. Any critique you can give me would be immensely helpful. Thanks!

Cool, but the high score page looks completely broken on Firefox 40.

Whoops. Thanks for the heads up! I've fixed it now. :)
