2.6 'Please Rescan' is now in Beta!

After sorting through and rescanning what felt like a few thousand pages the next patch is just about ready!

2.6 'Please Rescan' is the first of a group of updates that will just about completely replace all of the art in the game with higher res sharper recreations.

This update contains the recreated environmental art. Characters, baddies, and more will be coming in future updates.

These new sprites do a good job of showing off how much the last few patches have changed the rendering system of the game.


:CupcakeRed:To access the alpha build right click Chester One on your Steam Inventory->Properties->Beta->choose "Beta"
You might need to restart Steam to trigger the update.:CupcakeRed:

Chester One: a love letter to classic platforming action and 90’s animation oddness that is almost 10 years into development is receiving its largest update yet: 2.5 - Candy Coated!
Get ready to eat some all new reality-altering candies as you make your way through the game’s 40 levels unlocking new Chesters, hunting down secret secrets, and reclaiming your cupcakes!

Candy Coated reworks this artstyle changing mechanic with all new Magical Candy powerups, includes several new artstyles, and updates to the rendering system to provide sharper visuals for higher resolution screens at 60fps!

There is also now a Free Demo available if you want to try the game out!
