chumbo.zone(put this in bold please) is a visualization of raw artistic expression, extracted from the lowest depths of my soul. be warned, this is no mere "game", -- chumbo.zone is much more. "experience" is a more fitting title for this work of art.

 inspired by only the greatest minds of the last century -- david lynch, brakhage, sam france, hideo kojima, and bladee -- chumbo.zone is an on-screen interactive journey where You will laugh, You will cry, you need this shit. primal fear: in awe of your sheer dependency on this slime. You loved "Holy Smokes" (coming soon), you ate up "Inferna", and who could forget "Dwayne Crashers?"? Certainly not me.

drag yourself along this three-course fine dining EXPERIENCE(!) while you have the opportunity. admit it, a game  such as this comes once every three, maybe four millennia . LUDO such as this is rare. you wont just like it. you will love it. and if you dont love it you just dont get it.

Video Games will never be the same again. fuck you

From Muse:

Break all the crates and kill all the enemies for the True Ending! This game was a little slow at the start up, but once you really get into what the game dubs the “Chumbo Zone” your mind will be blown. Forget everything you know about indie games, this one will defy all expectations and surprise you with twist after twist. I’m left hungry for more content, and the developers will have my full backing and support in the foreseeable future!

From Reggoe Bananaguard:

this game is basically horrible, the controls are sloppy, the graphics are nothing to write home about, the music is ass and the main character is unlikeable... But if you don't play this awesome game, eat shit NERD. You spend all day playing destiny 2 anyhow? why dont you play a game that will matter for your future? Why are you making it so complicated? It's easy...

From PurpleLizard23:

the best strand type game since mario


This game was amazing and I love the dialog :D

How did you make the text move like that though?


i drew my own two handmade fonts that the game switches between using every second or so

to make stuff appear 3d like the walls and that one enemy towards the end of the game, i just stacked many sprites on top of eachother and offset their y values to make them appear 3d. to make sprites like the ones for the player and enemy, i just made the orientation of their sprites correspond to the orientation of the camera, which is called billboarding.

I didn't know what Chumbo.Zone was but now it's the only place I want to be.

But on a serious note, I absolutely love the concept of a "never paying off" game and you nailed this. That finale song is perfect as well. I love it. Great experience, seriously!

finally somebody gets what it means to be chumbo. thank you for playing through my experience.


wow dude this really is chumbo.zone huh



Made a video


thank you!


Hi! I just wanna let you know that your exe gets picked up by my anti-virus software as malware for some reason. Specifically it picks it up as this: https://www.f-secure.com/v-descs/w32_malware.shtml

that's really strange and i can't think of any reason why it's doing that. has it detected any other games you've downloaded from here as malware or anything like that?

No it is not. I believe in you lads that it's not and WinDef does not pick it up. Just wanted to give you a heads up.


thanks for the notice. i honestly have no idea why it'd do that.


to say the least, 



it is


This is a modern classic, a masterpiece, the definition of high art. I'll pass down this game to my nephew, and his son, and his son, so that no one can every forget this magnificent file known as a video game.


finally somebody gets it
