Chasm is a 2D Action-RPG Platformer currently in development for Windows, Mac, and Linux. 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.

Players take up the role of a soldier passing through a remote mining town on their journey home from a long war. The town’s miners have recently disappeared after breaching a long-forgotten temple far below the town, and reawakened an ancient slumbering evil. Now trapped in the town by supernatural forces, you’re left with no option but to explore the mines below, battle enemies and bosses, and increase your abilities in hopes of finally escaping and returning home.

Current and Planned 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

Too bad developers base how much effort they want to put into their game on greed, instead of passion.

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!

great, the game looks awesome, can't wait to play it, pretty sure i'll give in and get the early access when its released :)
sensorium7  [author] Jul 2 @ 1:28pm 
Yea, it will be somewhere in the range of 2-3 months most likely. It really depends on how much work needs done past the early access point, and how much money we're able to raise to keep production going.
JimZiii Jul 2 @ 12:55pm 
ok and do you know how long after early access is released that the full version is released? i think i read somewhere before that you were planning to release early access something like 2months before full release, but i might have confused it with another game
sensorium7  [author] Jul 2 @ 11:20am 
It's looking like we'll launch with the first three areas of the game (first half of the game), then add the remaining three as we go.

ok nice, and what will be in the early access version? i've stopped assuming that the early access version will contain the most part of the game even though most games do just that
