NVIDIA Project SHIELD gamers will be able to play the new puzzle game this summer.
Game developer Chuck Summerfield is back. He spent E3 at the NVIDIA booth showing off the new Tegra 4-enhanced Project SHIELD sequel to Chip’s Challenge called Chuck’s Challenge. The co-founder of Niffler talks about what’s in store in the new puzzle game.
Where did the idea for Chip’s Challenge come from?
I had this idea for a game that I always wanted to do. So I built a prototype of it at home in my own spare time and I got the green light to go ahead and do it for the Atari Lynx. I made the game and then put it out there and it was a huge success.
What happened to the Chip’s Challenge sequel?
I decided to write a sequel to Chip’s Challenge since it was so successful and I got permission to go ahead with that and I worked for two years really hard, got it all published, got it just the way I wanted it, went back to the people that owned the name and just found out that they wanted me to upfront all the marketing costs and they asked for $100,000 or so in advance. I couldn’t afford that. I was really sad about it for a long time and I decided eventually to just move on and count it as one of life’s lessons. It wasn’t going to happen.
