Coming to PlayStation and PC

Bit Kid’s Chasm, a procedurally generated, Metroidvania-style adventure, is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and PC (Linux, Mac and Windows) on July 31, the developer announced today.

Chasm’s release has been a long time coming; the game was successfully crowdfunded through Kickstarter in 2013 and has been in development for about six years. Developer Bit Kid even went through a company name change during Chasm’s creation, changing from Discord Games.

In Chasm, you play as a knight in the Guildean Kingdom who ventures into a monster-infested mining town to restore peace to the kingdom. The world of Chasm is composed of hand-designed rooms stitched together to form “a one-of-a-kind world map” that is unique to each player’s adventure. You can watch a brief teaser for the game above.

Chasm will cost $19.99/€17.99 and will be available from the PlayStation Store and Steam. The PlayStation versions will be cross-buy compatible.
