'What is Chuchel?' Explained!

It's time to answer one of the deepest questions of all time - what the actual heck is Chuchel?!

Czech & Weird
You guys already know we like to give our games some odd names and sometimes we even mix in a bit of Czech, our native language. For example 'Samorost' is a beautiful word for an object or a person that was formed entirely by the effects of natural influences. Such as this wooden animal.

Chuchel is also a word coming from the Czech language. We use it to describe a 'ball of hair and dust'. You know, that soft kind of mess which appears in your house when you don't clean it properly. The less cleaning you do, the more chuchels you've got - that's how it works. This thing below is a prime example of chuchel found at Jakub Dvorsky's household. Magnificent, isn't it?

By the way, Kekel, Chuchel's pet buddy/rival, also got his name from a Czech word for 'something terribly disgusting'. Seriously.

There's even a village called Chuchel. Rumors say it's got the highest consumption of cherries per capita in the entire world. Interesting. Reportedly it only has about 50 inhabitants, which seems appropriate for such a sacred place. Pilgrimage, anyone?

Quick maths!
Anyway, our Chuchel is by no means disgusting. He's rather cute, cheerful, although a tad bit annoying and simple. His strong personality has two sources of inspiration - one of them is Jaromir Plachy, the creator of Chuchel himself, the other would be Jaromir's dog Anca. While Jaromir sees himself as a slightly bothersome person (only sometimes), Anca is an incredibly nice and naive being. Combine these two personalities and you'll get the most fabulous Chuchel out there.

Get ready to experience Chuchel's hilarious tantrums on your own - the game arrives to Windows PC & Mac on March 7!!
