Chasm is a 2D Platformer Action-RPG currently in development for Windows, Mac, & Linux. Taking equal inspiration from hack ‘n slash roguelikes (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.
Chasm is a 2D platformer RPG with procedural generation. This week we'll take a look at some of the monsters in the game, talk GDC, and ask for your suggestions on our forum!

Chasm is a 2D platformer RPG with procedural generation. This week we'll take a look at some of the monsters in the game. (The video below is a touch outdated but if you know nothing about the game it should help you learn quick!)
In the past few weeks the team has been working on creating art and content for the game. Since the game will be at GDC it's been pretty hectic but the quality definitely shows through.
Our hero looks to face an eye as he stands in front of one of the new backgrounds.
Support beams hold up a treasure room within the mine.
Cave Trolls are best avoided.
If you’re going to GDC, why not stop by and pick up one of these stickers from the booth? It’s Kiosk #7 in the Play area, and a demo of Chasm will be there to try out! You’ll be able to spot it by looking for our new Chasm logo!
We've also been hard at work on creating a forum for you all to come and discuss the game at. Be sure to drop by and let us know if you have any ideas for the game as we would love to hear them.
Oh and we've been doing great on Greenlight thanks to you guys, but we still need your support to make it on to Steam! So be sure to vote!
