This is not an April fools I assure you. CHKN is a sandbox survival game about creating life, and life looks weird.

I have to give this a go, I just have to. I look forward to creating some true monstrosities.

I have requested a key, so hopefully I will be able to show you what it's like at release.

About the game
Behold! The miracle of life packed into cubes. CHKN is an open world sandbox game where life itself is your strongest tool. Bring creatures to life by assembling them from body parts, each packed with its own special sauce. Cook up whatever creatures you want and don’t be surprised if your creation has a mind of its own.

I've been following this game for a while now and already have it on my wishlist. It's always nice to see a project like CHKN come along: a new twist to a well worn genre. It's even nicer when the devs have been regular and frequent with their updates because it gives me hope that there will be a final product.

I'm looking forward to CHKN waddle-hop-slither-fly-ing out of EA. Thanks for spotlighting it Boss!

Looks like a fun game
I really can't seem to get enough of Voxel sandbox games like this. it has become my new core favorite genre of games. I was once an RPG fanatic and would always default to those. Although I play practically every genre of game, but a vast majority of my library has always consisted of RPGs (all subgenre there of). Now I'm quickly replacing RPGs with Voxel/Sandbox/Simulation games. Maybe I'm just getting old... But my creative side is in a dire need to be expressed, I guess

Im not in to these kind of game, if it is like ark survival, but for some reason I can see myself play this.

This reminds me of Spore. And Spore had to endure the dark age of walking phallus monsters, it never really recovered from that ;)

I've been sent a key, so looks like I will be doing a thoughts bit on it.

Looks awesome. I wish the body parts were a bit more cartoony looking since the realistic textures give me a bit of an uncanny valley vibe.
I look forward to trying it out.
