Chaosoft Games' most recent title is EvilQuest, an action/RPG with retro bit-style graphics.

EvilQuest launched on Xbox Live Indie Games on January 4, 2012 and is available for 80 MSP ($1 US). A PC version of EvilQuest will follow soon.

EvilQuest turns the Action-RPG genre on its head by putting the player in the role of a villain bent on world domination, rather than the traditional role of a hero trying to save the world. As the dark knight Galvis, the player begins the story by staging a daring escape from an imperial prison and unleashes his lust for vengeance and power on a world that is ripe for the taking. As the story progresses, Galvis will gain untold power, ultimately leading to a confrontation with the gods themselves. The outcome will determine the fate of the world and decide who is worthy to wield ultimate power.
