Chime Sharp arrives on Steam in June
Chilled Mouse was excited to announce that Zoë Mode’s critically acclaimed music puzzler, Chime, will see the sequel, Chime Sharp, arrive on Steam for Windows, Mac, and Linux this June. The game’s design was created by Ste Curran, Creative Director of the original Chime, and it will feature new melodies, modes, and visuals.
Ian Baverstock, CEO of Chilled Mouse, stated, “For Chime fans new and old, we are thrilled to announce that Chime Sharp will soon be stepping out from Steam Early Access to full commercial launch with the complete soundtrack. Keeping the essence of the original, Chime Sharp brings fresh soundtracks, new modes, more levels and an altogether improved aesthetic designed to appeal to modern players”.
“I’m so excited to have a modern version of Chime out there. It’s always been a special project, and I think Chime Sharp is the best version of Chime ever — it looks beautiful, it sounds fantastic and there are plenty of gameplay improvements for players to discover, too,” said Ste Curran, Designer of Chime Sharp. “We’ve also worked with some incredible artists — I’m so proud of the soundtrack, it’s beautiful, powerful and brings some new types of music to Chime — and the addition of UGC means this is a game that will grow and grow.”
Chime Sharp has been described as a crossover between a music sequencer and Tetris, tasking players to place various shapes together as they race against the clock. The passing beatline reads the blocks as notes, remixing melodies from various pop songs.
The goal of the player is to cover the whole playing grid by completing quads of 3×3 or more, generating points while enjoying melodic works from musicians across the world. Chime Sharp features a new song list, fifteen unique levels, and experimental modes.
