IT'S COMING!
« on: June 23, 2008, 11:50:34 AM »
I'm sure it hasn't gone unnoticed that I have been lurking about the forums. To what end you might ask? As everyone knows last year I busted out the ole' Doom editing tools and made the new flemoid and some test environments. What everyone doesn't know is that I have been spending the intervening time working on something BIG! I was shocked to find out that I was having a great time returning to the Chex universe and making retro game art. So it is with great pleasure that I am here to announce that I am currently working on a full-blown sequel to Chex Quest 2! It will have 5 all-new missions, complete with new flemoids and new environments!





My apologies to the other modders out there who have worked on their own versions of Chex Quest 3. It is not my intention to upstage any of your efforts. I just feel compelled to tell my own vision of what the next chapter in the Chex Warrior's story would be like. In fact the ambitious efforts on all of the Chex Quest mods should be applauded, for they are what have inspired me to put so much time into this project. I have a great deal of admiration for what you have done and it's my hope that I can consult with you when I get stumped on something technical. I might be dropping posts in the tech support forum occasionally for some help. 

I am very busy between work and family at home, so I can't honestly give any estimate on when I might finish. 2 of 5 levels are nearly finished. Maybe 25% of new textures and sprites are done. I hope it can be released before the end of the year, but we will see. I will try to post an update once a month or so with some new screenshots or concept art.

That's awesome! But, what happened to the level that you was working on here? (EDIT: The other pictures loaded for me. It looks like the level's there.) Will that be a part of this new mod of yours?

That Flemoid looks like some horribly slimed plant thing. And what's with the shooting star things? What port will this be for? Is that a flashlight and some weird zorchpak in the first screenshot?

I'm guessing Legacy, due to the crosshair. I am also guessing the turnip-headed Flemoid is CQ 3's answer to the BWA. I am deducing that those "shooting stars" are comets or meteors containing Flemoid Larvae, and were similar to the asteroid that landed on Bazoik.

Yeah, the first screenshot implies that, what with the meteor glowing green and whatnot.

Also, if you look in the third screenshot on the right side of the screen, there is one of those meteorites and a pool of slime, with slime edges on nearby textures.

I also noticed that. Hmmm.... Is this the same planet that Chex City is on? I still wonder what the name of that planet is.

IFC Central Command was the test map I put together last year and posted the earlier screenshots of. As I finished that up, I started to have some ideas about a bigger adventure, leading to the idea of making five new missions. So IFC Central Command (the chex-shaped space station in CQ1's intro movie) will be mission #1. I will drop some more info in my monthly updates, but I won't be giving away everything. There needs to be some suprises when you play it for the first time!

I want this to be as surprising as the time that I first played Chex Quest 2, and even the "other" Chex Quest 3 before I knew any better, so, yes, I think that you should reveal information only as needed.

By the way, that quote "flashlight" by Manny Cav seems to be, in truth, a Phasing Zorcher, hooked up to a Zorchpak.  Come on guys, can't you tell?

I blew it. :D That DID look like a zorchpak, but the Phasing Zorcher never registered.

So, since this is made by a member of the original Digital Cafe, I should safely say that this should be part of Chex Quest canon. This... looks.. awesome!
