It's a Saturday morning in 1996. You sleep late and then get up to eat breakfast. Your choice: Chex!
You start pouring out the cereal but then this CD lands in your bowl.
You run over to your computer and pop the CD in. Wait for it, wait for it...
EPIC loading screen!
The opening cinematic is pretty amazing too. It's the Citizen Kane of cereal-box game cutscenes.
Let's look at some screenshots and reminisce about a simpler time...
A time when running out of ammo meant using a spoon, a time when great works of art were mocked in a video game that was just a clever advertising vehicle.
But, eventually, the Chex Quest fun came to an end. You saved the stranded colonists and defeated the evil flemoids!
But, uh-oh, CLIFFHANGER!
Yes, Chex would eventually make a sequel, but it didn't never captured the magic of the original.
