A downloadable CHESTO for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Buy Now$2.50 USD or more

"CHESTO - At the Checkout" is an arcadey social commentary with tongue-in-cheek characters and tons of voxel food.

You play a supermarket cashier who works really hard to achieve just about minimum legal wage. At the same time you are contributing to the growth of a global food retail chain and its owner's astronomical wealth.

Each and every shopping item you scan in-game will have an influence on the profit perfomance of the globally operating food retail chain CHESTO. It is up to you and your play-style to help CHESTO's profit skyrocket or let it go bankrupt.

"500 000€ in profit - ???"

so, it reached it, when is the update?

Awesome... Soundtrack is a freaking 10!


Game is very fun and addictive, not the sort of game I'd typically enjoy, but I really enjoyed this one. The only problem is a bug where if you accidentally knock an item off screen, you can't get it back, and you can't complete the shift.


trying to open this game for mac and no dice :( any change it will be updated to the new 64 bit requirements?

Hey kimi10552!
I am so sorry to hear that you are not able to play the game. Unfortunately there are no plans to release a 64bit version soon. Sorry for the inconvenience.


I am pretty sure I did not give this game enough time and credit, it's a really good game, but talk about wonky phsyics and I should have read the instructions. I might give this another go at some point but for now you really need to play it for yourself to understand what I'm saying.

Josef, what happens if Chesto goes bankrupt?

Give it a try and you'll see...

I made a Let's Play of this game. I found this game to be really enjoyable, but those people...those rude-ass people...I will have vengence.


Boss makes a dollar, I make a dime...

This is quite an interesting game. Aggregating everyone's play scores into a simulated profit chart is quite the interesting concept, but it pulls it off.

The voxel graphics style and sounds are simple and clean. The controls take getting used to, but it works with the social commentary of the game. It's hard to finish before overtime, and even if you do, there's barely any reward.

Overall, this says a lot about the big box model and corporate greed of such companies. Definitely worth checking out, if even for the data. Damn good work!




cool game
