Features:

  • Explore a massive, hand-crafted island with 10 interconnected areas

It will have a Native Linux version and Steam Deck support.

After more than 200,000 recruits ventured into the procedurally-generated depths of Chasm, Bit Kid sought to return to the Metroidvania genre, while eschewing procedural generation in favor of a single, intricately-designed world. Bit Kid brought together artistic talent behind the Shantae series, Freedom Planet 2, and Sparklite along with a heroic chiptune soundtrack courtesy of musician RushJet1 (Cave Story+, Alwa’s Legacy, PewDiePie's Tuber Simulator).

“While I’ve always been a big fan of retro games and pixel art, I really wanted to dive deep into the style of NES and 8-bit gaming,” said James Petruzzi, founder and lead developer at Bit Kid. “We’re aiming to be as authentic as possible, stylistically: an 8-bit color palette, 320x180 pixel resolution, and a soundtrack composed in Famitracker which has enabled homebrewers to create authentic NES music for many years.”

You can follow it on Steam.

This game looks great and is up my alley when it comes to this genre. I've played Chasm a long time ago and thought it was a great game. This one doesn't look like it'll disappoint and I can't wait to play it on the Steam Deck

Well, NES games did have big limitations in the ROM size, so I guess that is a area where is better to everyone to not pursuit authenticity too much. Altough it would put a big smile in my face if there was a port of this game to make it run on real NES hardware.

I too wishlisted it.

This reminds me a lot of Jurassic Park on the Genesis/Mega Drive. I usually bounce off of platformers, but I think I'd finish this one! Looks perfect for the SD.
