Peace, tranquility and enlightenment on an idyllic remote island – what more could you possibly want?
Publisher Prime Matter and developer Brass Token, have this week released the story trailer for their upcoming third-person horror action-adventure game The Chant, which is due to ship later this year.
"Welcome to the Prismic Science Spiritual Retreat on remote Glory Island. Discard your baggage from the past and transform your Gloom to Glory. When a ritualistic chant goes wrong, the negative energy of the group opens up a dimension of cosmic terror. To survive, you must uncover a cult mystery of both past and present as the others slowly go mad from a host of parasitic creatures."
These horrors prey on your own fears, which will be fatal unless you carefully balance your mind, body and spirit. Choose to flee or fight with an assortment of spiritual weapons and abilities to seal up The Gloom and escape from Glory Island.
"We aim to surprise players with an off-kilter mix of 1970s cult horror and New Age spirituality, said Mike Skupa, Creative Director at Brass Token. "As a boutique studio we have the freedom to try new things, and we’re challenging ourselves each day with our first title, The Chant."
The Chant will arrive on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5 and PC later this year.
