Amanita Design, the indie dev behind modern adventure games Machinarium, Botanicula and Samorost 3, has launched CHUCHEL on Windows PC and Mac platforms. Just like any Amanita game before, CHUCHEL immediately strikes you with its distinctive visual style and sheer playfulness, however, CHUCHEL is not a matter of complex backgrounds and extraordinarily complicated puzzles – this time it is all about humor, laughs and cherries.
Why cherries? Because that’s what Chuchel, the game’s eponymous hairy hero, craves the most. He needs the players’ help to overcome various challenges ranging from logical puzzles to robot battles to escaping swarms of berserk Pac-Men in order to reclaim the precious red fruit. Each level is built upon original animation style of Jaromir Plachy and fittingly witty music, courtesy of the IGF Award winning Czech band DVA.
CHUCHEL is out now for $9.99 through Steam, GOG.com, Humble Store, itch.io, the Mac App Store and the game’s official website: www.chuchel.net. CHUCHEL Cherry Edition – containing the full game, 44-minute original soundtrack by DVA, 89-page digital art book featuring design drawings and concept arts from the creator of CHUCHEL Jaromir Plachy and a CHUCHEL Sans font – is also available for $15.
CHUCHEL is expected to land on Android and iOS devices later in Q2 2018.
