Developed by Brass Token and published by Prime Matter, The Chant brings players to a spiritual retreat for a third-person horror action-adventure experience. Today, the developers revealed the first full-length trailer for The Chant, which will be coming to current-gen consoles and PC later this year.
Mike Skupa, Creative Director at Brass Token, spoke about their goal for the game:
In The Chant, our aim is to surprise players with an off-kilter mix of 1970s cult horror and New Age spirituality. As a boutique studio, we have the freedom to try new things and we’re challenging ourselves every day with our first title.
The Chant takes place at the Prismic Science Spiritual Retreat located on the remote Glory Island. When a ritualistic chant on the island goes wrong, a visiting group’s negative energy unleashes a dimension of cosmic terror called the Gloom. To survive the Gloom, players must uncover a cultish mystery spanning both past and present, as the other group members slowly go mad from a host of parasitic creatures.
These horrors prey on your own fears and can be fatal unless you carefully balance your mind, body, and spirit. Players must choose to flee or fight, armed only with an assortment of spiritual weapons and abilities that seal away the Gloom, and escape from Glory Island.
The Chant launches this October for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
