Eric Schmidt

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Eric Schmidt is one of the most well-known level designers in the history of Chip's Challenge, making a name for himself with technically intensive compositions, often very long solving times, and many monster interactions. His first level set, EricS1, is a 165 level long concept set about the adventures of Chip throughout a variety of areas, trying to escape the teeth Hoola. His far more recent level set, EricS2, is much shorter with only 30 levels and does not have a storyline.

Eric does not commonly optimize Chip's Challenge. His scores for CC1 and CCLP2 are 5,962,750 and 5,996,910, respectively. He has also joined this wiki as Eric119, contributing some knowledge of specific glitches to it.

Tile World 2 is currently maintained by Eric.

Many levels in EricS1 are rough edits of existing CC1 levels, which either change some tiles or monsters, alter the requirements, add additional sections, or fix previously busted levels. The levels worked over were, in order of appearance in the set:

Twenty-eight of Eric Schmidt's levels were placed into CCLP2, largely stacked in the middling to hard categories. Some of the hardest CCLP2 levels, such as Warehouse II, Exit Chip, Yet Another Puzzle, and Cloner's Maze were created by Eric. Another of his levels, Yet Another Yet Another Puzzle, formerly titled The Last Laugh II, was placed in CCLP3.


  • Eric is the only designer to have at least one level in all four Chip's Challenge Level Packs, and one of just two people, along with Mike Lask, to have a level in each of the first three packs.
  • The chairman of Google shares the name Eric Schmidt with this Eric Schmidt, though they are not the same person.
