Behold! The miracle of life packed into cubes. CHKN is a sandbox survival game where life itself is your strongest tool. Bring creatures to life by assembling them from lifeblocks, each packed with its own unique personalities and abilities. Work together to survive on a tropical island full of adventure and danger by gathering resources, crafting items and building homesteads. With multiple modes, there is an abomination for everyone!


  • Unique AI: You have the power to bring creatures to life by slapping blocks together, in whatever shape, size, or combination you want. These blocks of intelligent life give your creature unique personalities based on the combinations you make. No two creatures are alike...unless you make them alike. In which case, an egg will pop out of one of them. Even if it’s a cat. Because SCIENCE.
  • Creature Interaction: Creatures have all the feels and they’re not afraid to express them. Sad eyebrows? Your creature might be lonely. Happy smiles and farts? Your creature loves you for feeding them hamburgers. If a creature is snarling and running at you, then it’s probably too late - you’re dead.
  • Survival Tactics: Creatures will work better than tools at collecting resources and protecting your homestead. They’re better at fighting and cutting down trees than you are, so you’ll definitely want them on your side.
  • BUILD ALL THE THINGS! Build a house! Build a farm! Build a three-headed, five-footed, llama-rantula-pus! With your creatures’ help, break apart your surroundings to craft tools and structures. Craft beds made of chicken parts and farm the land in order to survive and thrive.
  • Multiple Modes: Get plopped into a world with nothing and scavenge, craft, and build your way through Adventure Mode. Creative Mode gives you endless freedom to create whatever you want using a library of over 150 structure and life-blocks!
  • Nightmares: You try and sleep after bringing to life a 5-headed, carnivorous plant monster with horse legs and a cat tail that clucks and shoots ink!

This is an Early Access game, which means it’s a little chick growing with every build. Remember raising them in school? Well, we’re that little chick under the heat lamps, confused about why we’re standing in sawdust with kids staring down at us.

But seriously. We’re just beginning with CHKN and we want you along for the ride. It’s going to be crazy and weird, but we’re going to involve you in any way possible, whether it’s asking for advice, testing out new features, or just showing us your ridiculous creations! We love hearing from you guys. Team CHKN is just a tweet, email, comment, or a very loud scream away.

Hey CHKN Army!

We are always trying to find more ways to involve you guys in what we are doing, from surveys to Dev Logs to Twitch Streams. Now we have redone our Road Map and jazzed it up a bit. You can now VOTE on cards on our Trello Board!

This will let us know what you are most excited about for the future of CHKN.

First, you have to make a Trello Account which is super easy and takes no time at all. Then, read through our Road Map and click the “Vote” button for the cards you really like!

If you want to see something else made that isn’t on the Road Map, then suggest it in the forum! We are always keeping a look out.

Some things that we have planned are:

  • A new map!
  • Breeding
  • Avatar Customization
  • Flying!
  • Much more.

Do you like these ideas? Then cast your votes! Please remember that the Road Map can change at any time. We look forward to hearing from you!

- Team CHKN


All new map in the works.
