Spiritual successor to Chip’s Challenge comes to Steam

After more than a 20-year absence, Chuck Sommerville – the game designer behind Chip’s Challenge – has made a new PC, Mac & Linux puzzle game called Chuck’s Challenge 3D

Developed by Niffler Ltd. and published by Nkidu Games, Chuck’s Challenge 3D is packed with 125 levels that will test players’ logic, wits and reactions. With the included level editor, players can create and share their own puzzles, showing off their inner game designer. Chuck’s Challenge 3D launches today on Steam for Windows, Mac and Linux with a 10% launch discount, for just $8.99 ($9.99 regular price).

“Over the last couple of years we’ve been creating a 3D puzzle game based on my original design and over two decades of player feedback,” Niffler’s Chuck Sommerville said. “Chuck’s Challenge 3D mixes the new with the old. We have the original Chip’s Challenge team designing levels, along with cloud gaming improvements that let anyone create and share their own content.”

Take control of an interdimensional purple being named Woop and help him navigate his way through level after level of obstacles and challenges that stand between him and the exit portal. Shift blocks, find keys, flip switches, wade through water, hot-foot it through lava and do everything it takes to make it out in one piece as you evade an army of hungry creatures who want nothing more than to turn our purple hero into a nice ‘n tasty Woop Sandwich.

·         Enhanced Graphics, including Disco Dance Floor, Screen Space Ambient Occlusion, Tilt-Sift Mini-Blur Effect
