You may recall our Review of a title called Chuck’s Challenge 3D published by Nkidu Games, but what you might not know is that the title is based on a series from back in the day called Chip’s Challenge. Chip’s Challenge 1 was created in 10 weeks by a one man development team, and after that it received a huge fan-base who were giving outcry for a sequel.
When that sequel was developed though, it became apparent to the developer upon completion of the game that trademark rights were now in the hands of new owners who had no interest in funding the actual publishing of the sequel. The developer has never been able to release Chip’s Challenge 2 because of that… until now!
Thanks to Nkidu Games, countless years of negotiation with all parties involved, and the persistence of fans wanting to play the game – Chip’s Challenge 2 will now see a full fledged release on Steam in addition to the re-release of the retro classic title Chip’s Challenge 1. The release date is set for May 29, 2015 with an Editor available for the sequel as well at an additional DLC cost of just $2.99 with the original Chip’s Challenge 1 running for $1.99 and Chip’s Challenge 2 costing $4.99 with unreleased levels, Steam Workshop support, Steam Trading Cards, and more.
Excerpt from the Official Press Release:
“When I couldn’t release Chip’s Challenge 2, it hit me really hard. Not only had I spent two years perfecting it, I also felt I’d let down the fans too.” Chuck Sommerville [Creator of Chip’s Challenge 2] said. “I generally thought the only way Chip’s Challenge 2 was ever going to see the light of day was by having my wife leak it on the internet on my death.”

Guitar Hero is back!! (Reveal Trailer Here) and A New Monster Hunter is coming from Capcom. For today’s RGN Daily News you’ll have to forgive me as we return to the written format. I spent a good deal of the day catching up on ZzZ’s and now am back to work on a multitude of Reviews including GTA V on PC (Available Now through Steam for Windows) as well as Titan Souls which also launched today on PlayStation 4 as well as Vita and Windows PC and Mac OS X (Linux version coming later). There’s even a demo for Titan Souls on Steam as well. This is the calm before the storm ladies and gentleman and you can really feel the E3 Season begin to approach as new games are being announced and revealed. That Guitar Hero Live game from Activision must be somewhat important to them as well since they spammed every member of the Call of Duty consumer Newsletter with the announcement and even pinned it to the Call of Duty homepage today. In other news, Cities: Skylines has reached a well-deserved 1 Million Sales and climbing through Steam making Paradox Interactive one of the most beloved City Builder game publishers at this time in an era after the fallout of EA’s PR nightmare with the online-only rehash of SimCity which fell flat on its face. We will have our own Cities: Skylines Review coming up this week along with much, much more so be sure to stay tuned for that!
If you follow us on Twitter you may have noticed I was gaming today with the Community Manager of Nkidu Games Inc. and we were playing The Red Solstice a team-based strategic shooting game on Windows PC involving co-operation and survival against monstrous, vile enemies. Be on the lookout for more of that as we continue playing the game for our own coverage, a Single Player mode emerges soon for it, and we continue enjoying the interactive community surrounding the project who are admittedly a lot better at the game than me. Thanks for checking out the RGN Daily News #79 and bearing with us as we transition from the not-so-busy first months of the year into the heavy gaming circuit and aim to bring you coverage about the best indies, best AAA’s, and none of that generic boring stuff you don’t care about. Until next time, keep it real, and keep it gaming!!
