If you’re down for some old-school gaming with a new-school twist then Chasm is a worthwhile investment.
Discord Games specializes in bringing 2D games and Chasm fits the bill with the pixel art style and retro plot harkens back to the days of Castlevania and Metroid. Chasm has $74,859 in funding and needs $150,000 in by May 11.
Players take control of a lone soldier passing through a mining town during his journey home. Unfortunately, he arrives to an empty town after the miners breached a long-forgotten temple and unleashed the ultimate evil.
Chasm looks much like Castlevania in game play and atmosphere, but the level design and camera angle borrows from Metroid. What sets Chasm apart are the RPG elements and level design.
There will be plenty of loot with a variety of weapons, spellbooks and shields to customize your character. Also, each area will be randomly generated, which adds to the replayability.
Some of the rewards offered for this project include a DRM free copy of the game, special weapons, an artbook and even the chance to become apart of the game as a non playable character.
