Chip's Challenge spiritual successor coming to Steam
Yesterday on 11/12/13 Chuck's Challenge 3D was Greenlit by the Steam Community. Chuck's Challenge 3D is designed by Chuck Sommerville the creator of Chip's Challenge.
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.

"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," Chuck Sommerville said. "Chuck's Challenge 3D mixes the new with the old. We've the original Chip's Challenge team designing levels, along with cloud gaming improvements that
let anyone create & share their own content."
Initially Chuck's Challenge 3D seems to be about playing through a series of puzzles. But actually it's about learning the mechanics of game play, so slowly the player can become the creator, making the game more than just passive experience, but a creative one as well.
We think coding is important, but it's not necessary the best entry point for everyone who wants to learn how to
make video games. Too often we hear people telling potential game designers or young kids to get into gaming they must learn how to code first.
That's why we've created a paint style interface that allows anyone to make complex logic puzzle, skill dodging
levels or just simple fun mazes, so that they can get a taste quickly of what it's like to be a game designer, by seeing their ideas coming to life. We hope our game is a stepping-stone that attracts new talent to the games industry, by giving people the tools to create games and then the thirst to expand on what they have learned.
