Chex Quest 3 Finished & Released

Posted on September 12th, 2008 by Frank Cifaldi

From the Completely Out of Nowhere Department (and thanks to TIGSource for the heads-up) comes the announcement that Charles Jacobi, the artist behind Chex Quest and Chex Quest 2, has finished and released Chex Quest 3 - over a decade after an incomplete Beta version was posted online!

Chex Quest was a hack and partial conversion of the original Doom, developed by newmedia and marketing firm Digital Cafe on commission from Ralston Purina. The game replaced Doom’s main character with an anthropomorphic piece of Chex cereal, among other modifications, and was included on specially marked boxes of the breakfast favorite. Chex Quest 2 was released for free on the developer’s website, and Chex Quest 3, after going as far as Beta, was quietly canceled when the promotion ended. Now, over ten years later, Jacobi has finished the game and posted a download on the alarmingly active Chex Quest Fan Forums. Early impressions from the Fan Forums are generally positive, including “ULTIMATE EPIC WIN FROM ANOTHER DIMENSIONPWNZORNESS!!!!!!!!” and “YES!!!!!!!!!!11 WO HOOOO.”

Personally, this is not my favorite cereal-related game - every day, I continue to wait patiently for someone to bring Tony & Friends in Kellogg’s Land back into my life.
