1-7-13 - Mini-Game Reveal #4

This post concerns a portion of the project that has not yet been in development. Any images or screenshots are simply for visual aid and are not official to this project (unless stated otherwise)

Also, there are spoilers in this post. Proceed at your own risk. :P

Mini-Game #3
Seth's Challenge [code title]

This game will spoof the classic Windows 95 version of Chips Challenge

In this game you simply just go around solving puzzles and avoiding traps in a simple grid style map. I may do five levels for this one, with redesigned graphics, music and original maps.

from Wikipedia:
The premise of the game is that high-school nerd Chip McCallahan has met Melinda The Mental Marvel in the school science laboratory and must navigate through Melinda's "Clubhouse" (a series of increasingly difficult puzzles) in order to prove himself and gain membership to the very exclusive Bit Buster Club.
 I'm replacing Melinda the Mental Marvel with Trixie, The Great and Powerful and Chip with either Sethesto (a simple shoutout to the creator of Equestria Daily) or some other pony. That specific pony's goal, of course, is to become a member of Trixie's Amazing Fan Club.

This game is still being thought over, and there may certainly be some changes here and there. the Title may just be a placeholder for the time being.

Also, this may be one of the few elements of Spikes Quest that I'll actually recruit some help, some people with a good sense of level design to design the maps for this game. And some times in the future the game itself may become a stand-alone project.


  1. Please don't make the character Sethesto. The game would be more enjoyable to people if the characters are recognizable to people who watch the show, and not everyone will know who Seth is or why he's relevant. Snips or Snails would fit the role better.
    I am liking the ideas for these minigames so far, especially the first reveal.

    1. rest assured, the chances of the final pc being Seth are pretty slim. I've had people request it being Snips or Snails back when I was considering making this a stand alone project, and I may consider it for this project.

      glad your liking the reveals ^^
