There was to be a ''Chex Quest 3'' released shortly afterwards, but it was cancelled. However, in September 2008, more than a decade after ''Chex Quest 2'''s release, former Digital Cafe employees Charles Jacobi and Scott Holman got together, created a new five-map campaign, and released it for free.

* BloodlessCarnage: Flemoids never "die" really, but rather your weapons send them back to their own dimension. {{Justified|Trope}} in the first game's intro, which outright states that conventional firepower is utterly useless against the Flemoids. Likewise, when you run out of health, you don't ''die'', you merely get "slimed".
* DarkerAndEdgier: Very hard to notice, but probably both intentional and unintentional. If you were asked which game is the silliest, you would probably say the first. Second silliest? the second. Most intense? The third.
