Only ’90s Kids (and those who are forced to engage with the culture of the decade due to nostalgic overexposure) Will Remember: Chex Quest, the kid-friendly FPS from 25 years ago, is getting a HD remake. While the age of finding CD-ROMs in cereal boxes is long past, you’ll be able to purchase the game in a more traditional manner with cash: including on the Nintendo Switch.

For those who don’t take Buzzfeed quizzes asking which Rugrat you are, Chex Quest is a 1996 DOOM clone (all FPSes were DOOM clones back in the day) substituting the hyperviolence for Chex branding and cereal-themed weapons and power-ups. It’s only going to cost $4.99 (not too far off from a box of cereal), so it may be worth checking out — chexing out? — when it releases on March 11th. Do it for all those that came from the year 1996 (including Yours Truly).
