Yes a Switch port - someday - would be cool. Be a fun platform to carry around on the go to play Chasm on. :D Dev kits seem (reasonably, relatively) affordable too.
That said... yes, please wait until well after release lol. :p
Keep up the hard work. We are all very patient. ^_^
Definitely busy enough for now :) We are interested in taking a look at it eventually though, seems like a great concept.
I figure you all are already busy enough, but I'd be quite interested in a Nintendo switch release for this game. It seems like it would be quite mobile friendly.
Can't wait for the Beta!!
Yea, right now Beta is planned to be feature complete, it will basically just be down to bug testing. It's up to you if you'd rather or not wait until final release though, it will probably be a little smoother experience.
Can't wait for update. Would you say Beta is feature complete, time to play? I've been holding off on playing it much in the Alpha cause I don't want to burn out and want it fresh. Or, should I wait til 1.0?
As for people being impatient, 3 or 4 years is normal, people. That's just how long it takes to make quality video games. ... Pat.
looking forward to see what the game looks like at pax east since i last played it
We'll have a new update out soon. We've been very busy crunching to finish the Pre-beta build and haven't had a lot of time to keep up with everything else.
Any news here? It's nearly 4 years now...
I'm being very patient.
Damn.. this game gotta be good.
I WANT IT!
No date announced yet, please see the latest update for more.
So, when will I get my copy of the game?
Sorry, it's been crazy with PAX West! Not sure yet when we'll do next update. We may do a quick recap of PAX and the press we received, or it might just make most sense to hold off until the end of the month. We've mostly just been focused on the items in the "What's Next" of the previous update and the show, so nothing too earth shattering to announce right now :)
YER KILLIN ME, DISCORD! ;) Any news coming soon?
anyone that takes projected completion dates as gospel is just setting themselves up for disappointment.
This game was projected to be done in May of 2014...SMH, no update on changing codes to PS4, I'm starting to 0nder if this game will be out before this generation of consoles are retired.
We're working on it now, should be out in the next couple days.
@DiscordGamesLLC Let me know if I can help you out with any low res testing.
@Par I haven't had time to try it yet, but I will soon. The more I had thought about it, I realized it should definitely be possible to display at its native res with the whole screen in tact at 15khz. There are actually many arcade games out there that display at 384x232, so worst case it will need 8px padding on top and bottom. It will also require a custom modeline for your graphics card, but if you're already setup to play arcade games you should be good to go. I will let you know once I've had a chance to try it out!
@DiscordGamesLLC I use a Sony PVM 20M4E, so we're in the same boat. I'm investing in a MIMO Genius Box 2 so that I can convert 31KHz 480p to 15KHz 240p. Would that better my odds in playing Chasm on my CRT? That would be right up my alley if we can't find a way to scale to 240p natively in the game.
Played the demo with the Steam Controller.. Loved it!!!!
We're working on it now! Not sure when it will be posted yet, but most likely within the next week.
new update? :)
Sorry for the delay! We're working on this months update, but crunching to finish up some stuff first. Will be out in the next week or two!
Any updates for us? Either on development in general (one of my favorite type of posts you guys have been making by the way!) or potential release date?
:( for where art thou game?
No date just yet, but we're working our hardest to get it out this year. We'll have an update with the status of things in just a few weeks!
what's the latest estimated completion date pls. cheers
@Par I have thought about it, but the tough thing is the horizontal width. The game has a native resolution of 384x216 (5x scales to 1080p), so it should be fine with the vertical component, but I think the horizontal is going to be an issue. It could be possible to crop it, but its going to cut off necessary info like the doorways and such on the sides. I will keep thinking about it because I'd love to play it on my PVM! What kind of CRT do you use?
@Wayne Thanks! We're going to celebrate it next month when the Kickstarter completed :)
Will Chasm be supporting 240p? I'd like to play it on my CRT.
.......Happy Kickstarter Anniversary??
Chasm has now taken longer to develop than The Legend of Zelda: a Link to the Past. Maybe pipe down the expos and send some binaries our way?
Hi Fiel! Unfortunately PS4 keys are not free to generate and were never budgeted for, so we won't be able to do a straight switch. We are planning on offering heavily discounted keys for backers eventually though, we just need to work out the details with Sony. We'll have more details coming up.
I back at $50 tier and would like to switch to PS4 along with all my reward. Is it possible ?
@wenchwogg I was trying to get it out last week, but things have been crazy and I managed to completely miss it. You beat me to the punch though, it was just published ;)
@Joseph Getting closer to locking down release date, but nothing to announce just yet. Sorry, wish we could do swaps too, but unfortunately the PS4 keys aren't free to generate like the Steam ones. We're looking into offering some sort of discount program though, hopefully have more details on that closer to launch.
Is the next update soon?
Any update on either release date, or console purchase? Would love to swap my PC purchase to PS4 if possible. Can't wait for this game, my hands on to date has been amazing, but I don't want to even open my Steam Greenlight version as I want to save my experience for launch.
please be soon. I've played through the current areas and I want more. This game feels so good with it's controls and movement. I can tell you're gonna nail it.
It's been a while since I checked in. Everything's looking so darn awesome! I'm really glad I backed Chasm.
You guys were an inspiration for my own project, Soul Saga. Seeing other like-minded passionate developers really helped motivate me to run my own Kickstarter at the time.
Keep chugging guys! You're doing great!
@Cory Nice, thanks a bunch for the heads up, will check it out!
You're in Game Informer #274 "Doom" on page 21! Way to go! Really looking forward to getting my hands on this game.
I'm looking forward to learning all the secrets of the underground people.
Great news :)
Thanks Gordon, you too! Things are looking great, we've been busy working on the last areas of the game and getting ready to start post-production coming up. We'll have another update here soon so stay tuned!
Hope you had an amazing Christmas and New Years!!! Soooo how's the game looking?!???!!
You will know as soon as we do! We still have a few hurdles to get through before we'll feel comfortable locking down a date, but we're getting close.
Every update I hope for a date... c'mon Discord ya gotta give us something..
Sorry for the long wait! A release date hasn't been announced just yet, but we're getting very close to pinning one down. We want to be 100% sure we'll be able to make it, so we're being extra careful this time. We have high expectations for the game, and unfortunately it's been a lot more work than anticipated to get things to a quality level that we think can stand with our inspirations. Hang tight though, things are coming together great and we can finally see some light at the end of the tunnel!
We're planning on offering a PS4 add-on option, but haven't worked out the pricing and everything with Sony just yet. We'll have more details closer to release.
