“Chester is amazing. It offers so much value for so little money.”

“The real hook to Chester is every bit of content Brilliant Blue-G shoved into the game.”
Pixelated Sausage

“the musical style is every bit as unique as the level design and artwork in the game providing a very nice change of pace . . . So yes, go out and buy Chester right this second if you haven’t”

About This Game

And they kinda destroyed the universe too, but priorities here.

Not So Early Access

While Chester One is a complete game it is still seeing semi-regular free updates to address some of the more dated features.
(Everything described here is currently in the game.)

Key Features

  • 8 Gameplay Changing Styles to switch up the look of the entire world around you
  • 10+ Playable Characters with special attacks to level up
  • 40 Levels across 7 Planets to explore
  • An amazing original soundtrack with 20+ tracks by Reina Lamour
  • Simple element system adds depth to platforming combat
  • Unlock nearly 100 Bestiary pages to learn about the weird world of Chester
  • Almost 100 Achievements to achieve!
  • Steam Trading Cards and Cloud Saves

Do you have what it takes to save the world you ruined?

You'll have to think fast and move even faster if you hope to save this world!
After an ill-advised prank by Chester, The Bad Guy has been pushed over the edge and driven on an absolute rampage. Buildings have been burned, realities shattered, and most importantly of all: CUPCAKES STOLEN.
It's not going to be easy putting this world back together, but for some unknown reason only Chester can do it! Get ready to fight through over 40 levels finding cupcakes, killing baddies, and collecting stamps to spend on the many unlockables of CHESTER!

Control the style of the world!

8 game changing styles to unlock!
As you progress through Chester you'll unlock new Styles that you can use to change the look of the entire world around you. Each style changes gameplay up in unique ways.

That's a lotta characters!

Over 10 unique characters to unlock!
You won't just be unlocking new Styles as you play, but completely new Chesters to play as as well! With The Bad Guy destroying realities like he did, Chesters from other universes can help Chester out on his quest. Unlockable Chesters range from classy gentlement, to tanks, and spaceships, and weird slug things.

Featuring an amazing 20+ Song soundtrack by ReinaLamour

Over 20 original songs that capture the fun quirkiness of classic video game music with a modern vibe that will keep you grooving through all 40 levels.

Now with almost 100 Achievements!

Just shy of 100 Achievements broken up into multiple categories ranging from standard progression and collect-o-thon achievements to extreme challenges, unnecessary stat tracking, and more!

Achievements are still in an early stage and while all achievements are functional many still need their unique icons.

Rock Paper Scissors style elemental system!

Every Chester and enemy you encounter is either a FIRE, WATER, or GRASS elemental, forcing you to react quickly to make sure you’re using the right Chester for the job.

Learn about the weird world of Chester!

Every Chester, enemy, style, and item in the game has an unlockable Bestiary page that gives you a small glimpse into the world of Chester.
