Chuchel is set in a fictional world inhabited by fantastic creatures. The protagonist is the eponymous Chuchel, a black critter resembling a hairy ball. He and his rival Kekel embark on a dangerous journey in order to catch a mysterious criminal and recover a stolen cherry.
Chuchel utilizes a side view. During the game, you mostly solve inventive puzzles and interact with NPCs. Each map features a different challenge: you can e.g. encounter mad Pac-Mans, participate in a bird race, or try to trick the Swimming Pool Monster. There are many references to classic video games and a large dose of situational humor.
The game features pleasant 2D visuals, perfectly matching the distinct style of Amanita Design. The head developer of Chuchel was Jaromír Plachý, Czech animator, who also worked on Botanicula, and the soundtrack was produced by the band DVA.
