About

CHKN is an open-world sandbox game where life itself is your strongest tool! Create life, block by block… Bring living, breathing creatures to life in any size, shape, or combination you can imagine, with genuine personalities and feelings that respond to your actions and the world around them. Give your creatures unique traits and abilities… Life blocks have different stats and abilities built into them. Some are strong, some are fast, some shoot blinding ink, some poison enemies… they can all be used to your advantage to make creatures more effective. Work with your creatures to scavenge, craft, and build… Your creatures will help you gather resources in order to craft a wide array of tools, items, and structures. The better resources you find, the better the things you can craft! Fight for survival as you explore a mysterious island… Work together with your creature companions to survive the many dangers of CHKN, avoid starvation, and defend your thriving homestead. Get Creative… If the risk and survival of Adventure Mode aren’t your thing, you can spend your time in Creative Mode with an unlimited supply of every life block and resource at your fingertips. Create whatever you like with no restrictions. Bring Your Friends… Want to brave the wilds of Foot Island as a group? Or collaborate on a massive creature and see what happens? Invite other players to join you in any mode and see what you can accomplish together.

CHKN reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Early Access Review What is CHKN? What can it do? Why am I playing it? And why IS CHKN fun? So, CHKN is a damn ingenious and fun Game that is still in the Early access phase. I spent about 20 Hours offline. Many review writers think it's a minecraft-like Game. I can't quite sign That like that. There may be a Few things in Common, but CHKN is going in a different Direction. At first Glance, this Game is reminiscent of "Spore" or "Impossible Creatures." This has to do with the fact that there is also a creature editor there, with Which you can create crazy Critters at your Whim-if you are in "Creative" fashion. Because the actual Game is contesting in Adventure mode. There you will be thrown as a little Adventurer on a big Island. On this one you have to try to survive and, with the Help of your one-, two-, three-, four-or five-legged (or much more Legs) Friends, to explore this Piece of Land. You have the Opportunity to put found animal parts together at will and thus make your new best Friend. These animal Limbs can either be found in (mostly guarded) OR eggs or you try to tame or murk off your Dream Monstrous with Food. If one has opted for the scrambled or "Ish do ' disch flat" variant, the poor Animal disintegrates into its Individual Parts. You should collect This and possibly build on your already existing monster or create a completely New One. In Adventure Mode, there is a certain Limit to the Number of your Creatures and the Amount of Limbs they can carry. But this Limit is increased in the course of your Journey by visiting misterious Temples scattered all over the Map and there ... Is there... Oh, be surprised. But there is also the Possibility, if you have chosen a nice Place, to build your own House. Of course, with cosy IKEA beds, Chests (to Store your Valuables) and a treadmill/sawmill to enslave your not so popular Critters. Yes, heard correctly: You can take advantage of your Mausosaurus, Hasehuhn or Dragon Sick For any Dirty work you don't want to do (or can't) do. They hunt for you, they cut down Trees and knock Stones broken. The Only thing you need to pay attention to is their Health Indicator and their Well-being (Hunger and Petting Units). I just Enjoy CHKN. I constantly have a fat Grin on my Face, because a new, still Hate-slidests-funny cigch hides behind every Corner and every Hill. There are still a few Bugs and some Things are not quite mature yet but this Game is worth buying from my Point of view. Above All, the Developers are really sympathetic, take care of the Community, listen to suggestions for Improvement And constantly bring Out updates. Only about the Multiplayer I can't say anything yet, I haven't been able to try it yet. Mfg
