'Chasm' (ALL) Gets Release Date

by Rainier on July 9, 2018 @ 5:32 a.m. PDT

Chasm is a 2D fantasy adventure platformer featuring procedurally generated Metroid-like dungeons and authentic pixel art.

Welcome to Chasm, an action adventure game in which you play a new recruit undertaking your first mission for the Guildean Kingdom.

Taking equal inspiration from hack ‘n slash dungeon crawlers (procedurally generated dungeons, loot drops, etc) and Metroidvania-style platformers, the game aims to immerse you in its 2D fantasy world full of exciting treasure, deadly enemies, and abundant secrets. 

Thrilled to prove your worth as a knight, you track strange rumors that a mine vital to the war effort has been shut down. But what you discover in the mining town is worse than you imagined: The townspeople have begun to disappear, kidnapped by supernatural creatures emerging from the depths.

Honor-bound to solve the mystery and restore peace to the Kingdom, you embark upon an epic adventure, with deadly battles against cunning monsters, exploration of ancient catacombs and castles, and powerful new equipment hidden at every turn. Though the overall story is the same for all players, your hero’s journey will be unique: each of the rooms has been hand-designed, and behind the scenes Chasm stitches these rooms together into a one-of-a-kind world map that will be your own.

“We started development on Chasm about 6 years ago and put everything we had into it,” said James Petruzzi, Chasm’s director. “Thanks to the support and patience of our wonderful Kickstarter backers and our families, we’ve been able to achieve the original vision I had for the game without compromise. I’m so excited to finally share it with the world.”

Chasm will be launching on July 31 for $19.99//€17.99.
