I'm playing a video game and in this scene the character is on a hill and says:


My guess is that it's a conjugation of する but it doesn't look close to する at all.

What conjugations are present in that word and how does it affect the sentence's overall meaning?

〜て+しまう → 〜ちまう → 〜ちゃう – snailplane Dec 31 '13 at 6:54

Like snailplane commented, it is a contracted form of して しまう.
I would add that the final ~おう marks the volitional form of しまう. If that can help you understand better the sentence, an other very similar way of saying it would be:

このまま昼ねを して しまいましょう か
