Prime Matter and Brass Token have teamed up to release a third-person action horror game, “The Chant (working title)”. The game takes place in a unique cosmic horror setting and will be published under the pioneering New Label Prime Matter.
The new title is set on the tormented grounds of a new age cult. While exploring a remote island’s twisted past, you must fight and escape the psychedelic terrors awakened by a spiritual retreat gone wrong.
 
The game is slated for release in 2022 on PlayStation® 4, PlayStation® 5, Xbox One, X Box Series X | S and PC, hitting stores both physically and digitally thanks to the publishing deal between Koch Media and Brass Token. Koch Media will be fully responsible for publishing and distribution activities covering markets worldwide through its local offices.
 
“We’re excited and honoured to be among the quality games being published under Koch Media’s New Label. Their passion for the project is inspiring, and having Koch’s global marketing and publishing expertise behind us means we can focus on our strengths to develop the best game possible.” said Mike Skupa, CEO and Creative Director at Brass Token.
 
We are delighted to team up 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’re looking forward to the digital and physical release of this cosmic horror setting mixed with survival action elements. The game will be a great addition for our new premium games label, and our teams in Munich and around the world are excited to support the dev team at Brass Token with all of our local and global publishing and marketing experience.” said Niklas Kaeding, Global Communications Manager at Koch Media.
