Update #1 After over 20 years of silence Chip’s Challenge creator Chuck Sommerville explains why there is no Chip’s Challenge 2.
Update #4 How’s Chuck’s Challenge 3D going to be sold?
We’ve been getting lots of comments & questions about what the right-hand $5 reward tier means.
Pre-order the PC or Mac version of Chuck's Challenge 3D. This will either include the full game or $10 worth of in-game credits depending how the game is finally sold.
We wanted you guys to decide how we should sell the game. Listening to your feedback it’s very clear that you want to just buy the game for PC & Mac. So we can officially say that it is going to be a straight one-off purchase of at least $10. That means if you pledge $5 you are pre-ordering the game for at least half price.
Also, regarding where the game will be available to download from, this will hopefully be from Steam. However, ultimately it is Steam who choose what games they sell. But this is something we shall try very hard to make happen.
P.S. Once a Kickstarter project starts you can’t change the reward text, hence why we’ve not updated the $5 reward pledge text.
We are team Niffler an indie game development studio, and we've been working on a new version of Chuck's Challenge for the PC & Mac called Chuck's Challenge 3D.
Chuck’s Challenge 3D is a puzzle game to tease the brain and challenge the fingers, walking through the evolution of gaming: move from A to B, collect items, the red key opens the red door, etc. But, like Lego, knowing what each piece does is only the beginning of the game’s fun, as players can also create and share their own levels using a simple paint-style interface.

Chuck's Challenge 3D - Alpha build in Unity
Cloottie Level C24 - DodgeballChuck’s Challenge includes four different game modes:
- Single Player play the main story and your best times are stored online.
- Race a multi-player mode where you see who can finish first.
- Create an editing tool to build your own levels & share them.
- Weekly Puzzle each week a single player puzzle can be downloaded.
Well we're making a game for you, so we thought we should make it with you. So you can either choose to simply pre-order Chuck's Challenge at a discount, or get involved with the game development.
We're also going to use the amount of money raised as a measure of how much extra stuff we should add to the game. So if we are lucky enough to reach our goal that's enough to build the game's foundations. However if we exceed the goal, then we can add extra cool features such as:
- Full Facebook integration such as friend list, profile images & notifications if one of you friends plays or beats you on a level.
- New Game Elements including laser, mirrors and bots.
- Enhanced search which learns the levels that you like.
- Co-operative player with multiple players on a single screen
We've got a mixture of digital and physical rewards for your pledges, including obviously Chuck's Challenge 3D. Have a look on the righthand side of this page.

There are three main character (groups) in the game:
- Chuck who Woop has 'summoned' to create games for him to play.
- Woop a being that can alter time and space who likes to play games.
- Woop's Pets that he's collected from various planets.

We're a small team based around the globe that believe games can be more than a passive experience and that they can be creative too. So we build games that are fun to make and play for both us and the player.
