CHKN features three game modes.

Adventure Mode[]

You start off with nothing and have to find resources and blocks to use. In an effort to survive, you are tasked with creating creatures and using them to build a homestead, explore the world, and gather resources. Discover multiple weird and unusual creatures roaming the land. Survive by building a society of creatures and work with them to help you survive.

Creative Mode[]

This mode gives you access to everything in the game right from the start. There are no limits and no rules, just pure experimentation. Your inventory is stocked with every life block and item available in the game for easy browsing and building.

Arena Mode[]

Watch your creations battle each other in this game mode. Two teams of creatures fight to see who's the strongest on the arena.
