The original Chex Quest
came to realization when Ralston Foods offered the now defunct developer Digital Cafe to create a simple game to be bundled with their Chex cereal. Essentially a Doom
total conversion of five levels (which was continued with another five in the download-only sequel
), it nevertheless found a fan base owing to its non-violent and light-hearted style, resulting in many additional user maps over the years.
The series had not been continued until the former lead artist of Digital Cafe, Charles Jacobi
, was intrigued by the fan-made additions to the earlier games and started to create a sequel all by himself.Chex Quest 3
runs as a stand-alone game on ZDoom
engine. Besides sporting the all-new episode in the series, the package also contains the revised versions of the former two (for a total of fifteen maps). The gameplay and core mechanics are derived from the classic Doom games - that is, it consists of exploring pseudo-3D maps through the first-person perspective, battling 'flemoids', searching for keys and solving button-based puzzles for a way out. However, the aural / visual style of the game is distinctly softer than its brethren thanks to the Chex-themed sprites and textures.
