ABOUT THIS GAME


Behold, the miracle of life… packed into cubes! Create fantastic creatures in an open-world sandbox game like no other. Explore, craft, and survive — all with the help of your very own creations.

Create life, block by block…

Bring living, breathing creatures to life in any size, shape, or combination you can imagine. Whether you build tiny pets or enormous abominations, they’ll all have genuine personalities and feelings that respond to your actions and the world around them. One may be smiling at you, eager to be your new best friend, while another may snarling at you and giving you stink-eye. The latter has most likely decided that you look delicious, so maybe you should run?

Give your creatures unique traits and abilities…

Lifeblocks have different stats and abilities built into them. Some are strong, some are fast, some shoot blinding ink, some poison enemies…they can all be used to your advantage to make creatures more effective. A creature with a strong beak can chop down trees more quickly than you can. And you’ll definitely want a creature with a water-blast ability with you while you explore that dragon’s cave… unless you like being on fire?

Work with your creatures to scavenge, craft, and build…

Your creatures will help you gather resources in order to craft a wide array of tools, items, and structures. Collect unique lifeblocks to upgrade your creatures with new abilities. Build a homestead to protect them from thieving poachers. Start a farm to grow crops so you don’t go hungry. The better resources you have, the better the things you can craft, so you’ll need to scavenge if you like that whole “staying alive” thing.

Fight for survival as you explore a mysterious island…

The world around you is teeming with life, some friendly and some… not-so-friendly. You’ll need to work together with your creature companions to survive the many dangers of CHKN, avoid starvation, and defend your thriving homestead. There are three-headed dragons to fight and poachers to defeat. There are secret caves to explore, beaches to roam, and lush valleys to scavenge. There are also other, more mysterious things to discover but, you know, SPOILERS.

Get creative…

If the risk and survival of Adventure Mode aren’t your thing, you can spend your time in Creative Mode. Here you’ll have an unlimited supply of every lifeblock and resource at your fingertips, so you can experiment and create whatever you like from the beginning with no restrictions. You won’t have to kill four dragons to see what it’s like to have a creature with 12 fire-breathing heads. (Hint: It’s pretty great.)

Bring your friends…

If you want to survive island life as a group, or collaborate on a giant creature with a few of your buddies, you can open your game up for multiplayer. Invite your friends to join you in any mode, and see what you can accomplish together. Or maybe you prefer to set up different homesteads and compete for resources to see who comes out on top? It’s up to you.

Multiplayer Disclaimer: The current version is an early alpha so it may not work for some of you and there will be bugs. If you want to give it a go to help us test and share your feedback, you can try it out using these instructions. Thanks!

Help us make CHKN great…

We’re just beginning with CHKN and we’d like to involve you in this journey as much as possible! Our development is completely open, so you can see what we’re working on, comment and vote on what you’d like to see added, and share your ideas with us in the discussion forums. Here are just a few of the things coming soon to CHKN:

  • All new, larger island: 5 different biomes, new places to explore, and 2 additional creature types
  • Survival progression: get stronger and build more powerful creatures as you explore more of the island and accomplish various tasks
  • Creature-powered structures: 3 new buildings that put your creatures to work turning raw materials into better resources
  • Mysteries to unlock: what are those mysterious beams of light shooting into the sky? Find them and unlock their secret!
  • Improved multiplayer: find friends and connect more easily with Steam Matchmaking
  • Additional content: new flying ability, tiered crafting recipes, high energy foods
  • And more, of course!
