After releasing the first batch of Revelation II computers in 2013 our capacity to produce new machines was reduced due to the fact that several parts suppliers were unable to meet our high quality standards.
We are releasing small quantities each week and production capacity is increasing to become a steady flow of new machines. We expect to fulfil all backorders by the end of March at which point we should be able to supply new orders without delay directly from our stock.
We want to thank all customers for their patience and understanding.

Revelation II unites multiple super strong commercial and freeware chess engines resulting in a great diversity in computerized chess play at ELO levels up to 2800 and above. Embedded chess engines run on Revelation II but the system can also make use of engines running on a PC or laptop by establishing a wireless Bluetooth connection. New and updated engines will be available from the download section of this website and with upgrade possibilities for additional Flash Storage, stronger (Multi Core) CPU and new software or hardware add-ins, your chess pleasure is guaranteed future proof!
Revelation II can emulate many world championship winning chess computers from the past giving the user a chance to return to the 80's and 90's of the last century when chess play against dedicated chess computers was at it's peak. A Retro Software pack with nostalgic Ed Schröder and Richard Lang emulations are available. In combination with modern engines the Retro Software very much broadens the range of the Revelation II chess playing experience for chess players of all levels.
