Theale, UK – May 16th, 2022 - Peace, tranquility and enlightenment on an idyllic remote island – what more could you possibly want?
The dark-side of spirituality breaks through the confines of normality in the new psychedelic horror The Chant. The upcoming single-player third-person horror action-adventure game - developed by Brass Token and published by Prime Matter - will have players on the edge of their seats later this year.
Set at a spiritual retreat on a remote island, The Chant has you trying to survive against a host of prismatic terrors that are unleashed after a group chant ritual goes horribly wrong, opening a portal to a nightmare dimension called The Gloom.
This dimension feeds off negative energy and starts driving you and the others mad, preying on your own anxieties and fears, and manifesting as interdimensional creatures: ultimately taking you on a journey of psychedelic horror the likes of which you have never experienced before.
But all is not lost; only by unravelling the mysteries of a 1970s new age cult while strengthening your mind, body, and spirit, can you reverse the chant and avoid being trapped in the gloom forever.
Supporting today’s announcement is an exclusive sneak-peak teaser trailer - along with a clutch of brand new screen shots. - taking you on a journey through the retreat and giving you a glimpse of the horror that awaits…
Those brave enough can check the debut trailer out here.
The Chant is slated for release later this year on PlayStation® 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC. Keep your third-eye open for more news coming very soon…
