The Chant is a third-person action horror game where players fight to escape the psychedelic terrors awakened by a spiritual retreat gone wrong.

Peace, tranquility and enlightenment on an idyllic remote island – what more could you possibly want? The dark side of spirituality breaks through the confines of normality in the new psychedelic horror title, The Chant.

The Chant is a third-person action horror game that is set on the tormented grounds of a new-age cult. While exploring a remote island's twisted past, you must fight and escape the psychedelic terrors awakened by a spiritual retreat gone wrong.

Set at a spiritual retreat on a remote island, The Chant has you trying to survive encountering a host of ethereal terrors unleashed after a ritual chant goes horribly awry and opens a portal to a nightmare dimension named The Gloom.

Developer Brass Token and publisher Prime Matter released a teaser for an upcoming 'Meet the Cast' trailer, which delves into the depth and psychology of The Chant’s colorful cast of twisted characters. 

Find out what brought each of them to the Prismic Spiritual Retreat on remote Glory Island. Learn how the minds of these troubled people work, understand the deep darkness within each of them, and follow their terrifying journey.

Introducing the cast of The Chant for the first time, the performers reveal what it was like to bring their characters to life in the upcoming horror action-adventure game.

The full-length trailer will premiere on Aug. 16. 

Today's video begins with The Chant’s lead character, Jessica Briar, performed by Siobhan Williams, as she's asked by her friend Kim Mallari (played by Kira Clavell) to come to this remote Glory Island on a spiritual retreat. Jess is happy to take a few days away from the city and her stressful life and career. Why not?

Considering herself someone who is willing to try new things, Jessica is also ready to deal with some much-needed closure from a traumatic event she experienced with Kim during their teenage years. What she does not know is that she will be forced into a new way of thinking in order to survive a new series of horrors.

Meet the cast of The Chant…

Kim´s been looking forward to the retreat ever since she first heard about it from Tyler Anton (portrayed by Adam Millard) at one of his seminars. Since becoming a student of Tyler, she has felt more alive than ever. She is grateful that Tyler allowed and even encouraged her to invite Jess to join, but is Tyler the healing, powerful and spiritual leader he claims to be?

Tyler inherited the island from his troubled mother and now he’s ready to welcome a small group of followers to a transformational journey into Prismic Science. This is the opportunity he’s been waiting for, and it’s time to leave his mark on the world and maybe even the cosmos.

Hannah Wilson (played by Emily Tennant) feels nothing but excitement at the thought of welcoming the retreat attendees. She has spent the past several months as Tyler’s right-hand. Never before has she experienced such a sense of belonging.

Maya Kalani (portrayed by Nicole Anthony) is on the island because she believes this retreat is her first step towards confronting the scars of her past and discovering true healing. During her journey of self-healing she met Tyler, whose keen eye saw her pain and enrolled her in the retreat with ease. She embodies a special spirit and energy.

Since connecting with Tyler, Sonny Sonti (Praneet Akilla) has decided to channel his energy (and some family wealth) towards his vision to help promote Prismic Science and create a movement. This is his chance to find greater meaning and leave behind a pattern of broken promises and self-destruction.

Multiple characters, multiple reasons to be there. One interconnected journey that will avow the strengths and weaknesses of each of the spiritual retreat attendees on Glory Island.

This dimension feeds off negative energy, driving you and the others mad by preying on anxieties and fears, manifesting them as inter-dimensional creatures. The Chant takes you on a journey of psychedelic horror the likes of which has never been experienced before.

But all is not as lost as it seems. By unraveling the mysteries of a 1970s new age cult while strengthening your mind, body and spirit, you can reverse the effects of the chant and avoid being trapped in The Gloom forever.

The Chant is coming to PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC in Fall 2022.
