Chasm falling onto Vita this summer

Bit Kid's Chasm is a gorgeous looking pixel adventure coming to the Vita this summer. An old-school action adventure game, you play a new recruit on your first mission which leads down a closed mine close to where townsfolk have been vanishing from.

Fighting supernatural creatures, you must restore peace to the Kingdom, exploring the depths and using all the equipment that comes to hand. More info a US PSN blog post, but the game features:

  • Six massive areas to explore, procedurally-assembled from hand-crafted rooms
  • Challenging retro gameplay and authentic pixel art (384x216 native res.)
  • Massive bosses and new abilities to discover with lots of otherwise inaccessible areas
  • Customize your character by equipping armor, weapons, and spells
UPDATE: The game is complete, and with Sony for approval and the usual Q/A, testing and so on. Release date to be announced soon. - 31st July in fact, just the five years after the original Kickstarter!
