Chuck??s Challenge 3D gets gigantic content update next week


25 years after the launch of the Atari Lynx and the classic puzzle game, Chip's Challenge, the game's successor, Chuck's Challenge 3D, is about to get a big content update! The Flummery update includes loads of new content that gives fans of Chip??s Challenge & Chuck??s Challenge the features they've been asking for. The update will be launched next Monday, September 20.

??It??s been 25 years since I originally designed Chip??s Challenge,?? designer Chuck Sommerville said. ??Over the last 6 months we've rebuilt Chuck??s Challenge 3D and Flummery is the icing on the cake. It includes the content that fans have been requesting for over two decades.??

The Flummery update will contain the following new content:

  • +1 Flummery Bundle a tougher set of 25 levels with a new background
  • +2 Hats instead of just one when you complete Flummery
  • +3 Tracks to listen to in-game while playing Flummery
  • +12 Game Elements with 7 additional game objects and 5 new pets:
  • Steam Workshop integration letting players discover & discuss levels they create

??Chip??s Challenge was based on a 32x32 grid, whereas Chuck??s Challenge 3D allows a 100x100 board with even more Game Elements. So it??s thrilling to play some of the complex levels that are being created by the community. Some are truly epic,?? said Chuck Sommerville.

The Flummery update for Chuck??s Challenge 3D will be free on Steam for PC, Mac & Linux:


Chuck??s Challenge 3D is a puzzle game that walks the player through the evolution of gaming: move from A to B, collect items, the red key opens the red door, and much more. But, like Lego, knowing what each piece does is only the beginning of the fun, as players can also create and share their own levels using a simple paint-style interface and seamless cloud storage.
