The Chant is a new occult horror action title developed by new studio Brass Token and will be released on PS4 and PS5 in 2022, busy bee publisher Prime Matter has revealed.
Covering the dark subject of the occult and the horrors that lay behind the veil, The Chant takes players to a spiritual island retreat where things go, well, very, very wrong.
While no trailer has been released for the game, you can check out the initial screenshots and press release for The Chant below, including a look at a character who doesn’t look anything like Charles Manson at all. No. Not even a little:
The Chant is an action-horror game set in the tormented terrain of a New Age cult, filling players’ tension of supernatural horrors on the darker sides of spirituality and cultism, and unraveling terrifying revelations about the universe.
As you explore the twisted past of a remote island, you must fight and escape the psychedelic horrors awakened by a spiritual retreat gone wrong. “We are delighted and honored to be one of the quality games to be published under Koch Media’s new label,” said Brass Token CEO and Creative Director Mike Skupa. “Their passion for the project is inspiring, and with Koch’s global marketing and publishing expertise behind us, we can focus on our strengths to develop the best game possible.”
Koch Media Global Communications Manager Niklas Kaeding continued: “We are excited to partner with Brass Token for this upcoming release. The Chant shows what a small but passionate team of just a few developers can achieve today. We look forward to the digital and physical release of this cosmic horror setting mixed with survival action elements, the game will be a great addition to our new premium games label, and our teams in Munich and around the world are excited to welcome the development team at Brass Token with all of our local and global publishing and marketing experience.”
