Ukrainian first-person shooter from 1997, Chasm: The Rift gets modernization for re-release today

From Press Release:

London, United Kingdom, October 10, 2022: Game publisher SNEG has announced that ‘90s classic FPS, Chasm: The Rift, has travelled through time to come to Steam and GOG for $19.99/19.99€/£17.99 with a one-week 10% discount to celebrate the launch.

Originally developed by Ukrainian game development studio Action Forms, Chasm: The Rift was the first Eastern European FPS released for a global audience. This fully reconstructed remaster delivers enhanced graphics with full 4K and widescreen support, improved sound design, and controller support to the classic 1997 title, as well as the original Chasm: The Rift version powered by DOSBox included as a bonus.

In Chasm: The Rift, players take on the role of a soldier in a special commando unit who defends planet Earth from “Timestrikers”, monstrous mutants invading Earth throughout history, and also destroy time channels to finally rid Earth of their threat. One against the horde, players will rely solely on their reflexes and the many weapons at their disposal to find their way through labyrinthine levels populated by fearsome creatures.

Along with a heart-pounding adventure through the Corridors of Time and the satisfaction of ripping limbs from hideous monsters with the iconic BladeGun, and an innovative weather system, old-school FPS fans (or boomer shooter lovers) are now able to enjoy this late 90’s FPS classic with the comfort of modern PCs via Steam and GOG, now with full 4K support, improved sound design, achievements, and localised into twelve languages

“We’re extremely excited to resurrect the beloved Chasm: The Rift, originally created by our friends at Action Forms back in 1997” says Oleg Klapovskiy, SNEG Director. “With fantastic gameplay and huge innovations when it first came out, I’m certain fans of the original as well as newer fans of the boomer shooter genre will enjoy it.”
