Chime Sharp Strikes a Chord on Steam This June


Digital game publisher Chilled Mouse announced today that Chime Sharp, the sequel to the critically acclaimed music puzzler Chime from Zoë Mode, is coming to Steam for Windows, Mac and Linux this June. With game design created by Ste Curran, the Creative Director of the original Chime, Chime Sharp brings brand new melodies, modes and visuals in this sharpened version of the popular music puzzler.

“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,” said Ian Baverstock, CEO of Chilled Mouse. “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 toChime — and the addition of UGC means this is a game that will grow and grow.”

Described as a crossover between a music sequencer and Tetris, Chime Sharp tasks players to place various shapes together in a race against the clock, while the passing beatline reads the blocks as notes, remixing melodies from various pop songs. The goal is to cover the whole playing grid by completing quads of 3×3 or more and generate points while enjoying melodic works by musicians from around the world. With a brand new song list, fifteen unique levels and experimental modes, the beloved Chime is finally back and ready to shine in its complete makeover.
