Video: RPG Platformer Chasm is Coming to PlayStation 4 This Year

17w ago - Discord Games Inc Founder James Petruzzi announced that RPG Platformer Chasm is coming to PlayStation 4 this year.

To quote: Hello, PlayStation fans! My name is James Petruzzi, and I'm the Producer of [Register or Login to view links], a procedurally-generated RPG Platformer coming to PS4 later this year.

In Chasm, players take up the role of Daltyn, a young soldier sent to investigate the mysterious disappearance of a mining crew in the remote mountain town of Karthas. Upon arrival you learn the town has been cut off from the outside world by supernatural forces.

Now trapped, you are left with no option but to explore the mines below the town and uncover the source of the disturbances. Only by gaining new special abilities, evading dangerous traps, and defeating hordes of deadly enemies can you hope to save Karthas - and possibly the world!

One of the hardest parts of game design is creating a unique and interesting world for players to explore. The Metroidvania genre has always been popular among exploration fans, and utilizes unlockable items or abilities that help the player reach previously inaccessible areas.

The goal of our latest game is to make an authentic Metroidvania-style experience that utilizes procedural generation to keep the experience...

Lately, we've been doing a ton of playtesting of Road Not Taken, particularly with fellow game developers. (If you're ever looking for brutally honest feedback, other game developers are a good place to start.)

In general, the feedback has been pretty positive: people love the game's basic mechanics, art and audio. But one big issue repeatedly crept up in many of our playtests: people weren't sensing the depth of the game and weren't feeling a strong sense of progression. This post is all about how we've been fixing that.

I like to think of Road Not Taken as an iceberg floating in the ocean: a tiny percentage of the total game is visible above the surface when you first start playing, while the vast majority of the game lies unseen, waiting to be discovered.

A large part of that depth comes from all the unusual creatures and objects you can encounter as you explore the enchanted forests of the game. Another large...
