Kickstarter Announcement

We’re incredibly happy to present to you the first official trailer for Chasm! The above trailer shows footage of the first area of the game, and was funded entirely by our previous success; however, we’ve depleted our funds and further development will not be possible without outside help. We believe that Kickstarter is a good method to acquire the needed funding, and to provide our loyal fans with something in return.

When the Kickstarter launches you will find more details about rewards, and as far as we know, this may be one of the only ways to get official game swag. Alongside that you will be able to place a pre-order on the game, gain access to a secret subforum on the forums for direct interaction with the team, and a multitude of other things.

We need the funding to be able to complete Chasm, and your support means everything to us. Simply put: this game will not happen without your help! During this campaign be sure to vote on Greenlight; we’re extremely close to the top and if you help spread the word we can ensure that Chasm is available to you on one of the largest digital distribution platforms there is.
