I'd say The Chant is a very solid entry into the survival horror genre, especially for someone like me who isn't really a big fan of the horror genre in all media. The acting is strong, and the crafting elements help to bring a sense of defencelessness to Jess. The story kept me enthralled, and The Gloom did its job of keeping me on my toes and giving me that horror game experience. The Chant may not look as good as it perhaps should on current gen, but the griminess of the island acted as an eerie backdrop to what first seemed like paradise.
From the niche concept alone you can tell this music rhythm FPS mash-up is more than just a monetary opportunity; it's a passion project for the developers and seeing it all together. I can't help but say they have done a fantastic job at creating a solid game.
