Chasm  



Yep, I'm still pumped to play Chasm


11:00 PM on 02.13.2014



Has it really been this long since Chasm first made the rounds? Discord Games left quite the impression on me with its action-RPG platformer back in March and then went on to run a successful Kickstarter. The fall 2014 release date doesn't feel nearly as far away now.

Chasm is back with another trailer to remind us of its existence, and what a pleasant reminder it is. This is one of those games that knows just when to pull back, leaving us wanting more. Indeed, I want to see someone navigate through those buzzsaws and ceiling traps successfully (and unsuccessfully, if I'm being honest).

Your player character is the main hero in the new Fire Emblem, coming 2016
