Chasm is a procedurally-generated RPG Platformer currently in development for PC (Win, Mac, & Linux) and Playstation 4. Taking equal inspiration from hack 'n slash dungeon crawlers and Metroidvania-style platformers, it will immerse you in a procedurally-generated fantasy world full of exciting treasure, deadly enemies, and abundant secrets.

When a small mining community falls silent, a young soldier named Daltyn is sent to investigate. Upon arriving in the remote mountain town of Karthas, he discovers that paranormal forces have sealed the town off from the outside world. Now trapped, he's left with no option but to explore the mines below the town and uncover the source of the disturbances.

Six huge procedurally-generated areas await, each lovingly crafted in a retro pixel art style. Help Daltyn gain new abilities and equipment, evade dangerous traps, and defeat hordes of deadly enemies in order to save Karthas - and possibly the world!

Features
  • Explore Metroid-like dungeons procedurally assembled from hand-crafted rooms in six diverse areas.
  • Enjoy challenging retro gameplay and gorgeous authentic pixel art (384×216 native resolution)
  • Discover new special abilities and powers to reach previously inaccessible areas
  • Play how you want by equipping weapons, spellbooks, shields, and more to both hands
  • Uncover random loot drops and rare items
  • Battle massive bosses and mini-bosses
  • Includes Normal and Hardcore (Scored with Permadeath) Modes
  • Leaderboards for Hardcore playthroughs featuring quickest time, least damage taken, and more
  • Windows, Mac, and Linux versions with Gamepad support

I just posted a new update, hopefully clarifying our Early Access plans:

From Kickstarter:

Early Access

We know everyone is anxious to get their hands on the game, and trust me, we feel the same way! We've been crunching all summer to get the game to a place where we're ready for people's feedback, and we're just about there! The plan is to launch a private Early Access on Steam for just our Kickstarter and Humble folk around the end of August or beginning of September with the Mines and Catacombs areas. We'll then push to get out a new area to you every 3-4 weeks until we complete the game. This may push release a bit beyond our Fall target, but hopefully you will agree that the time it's spent gestating has been well worth it.

Thanks for answering, in any case I will be getting it here on steam. Keep up the good work!

We've looked into 3ds, but the problem is the game would have to be rewritten for the hardware. Not to say it's impossible, but just unlikely unless the game does really well.

Will be getting this day one! Have you guys considered eventually porting to the 3DS? Would be nice to play this on the go also, like it's Metroidvania predecessors!
