Schacht is a fast-paced 3D platformer, focused on speedrunning and competition, where you can use different game mechanics to beat a level as fast as possible. The game contains four tutorial levels where you can learn the core mechanics:

  • Dash: The character gains an instantly forward momentum to cover large distances.
  • Wall Run: The character has the ability to run on certain walls.
  • Grapple: Grapple points enable the character to swing from one platform to another.
  • EMP: The character can set off an EMP to manipulate certain barriers, platforms and traps.

After finishing the tutorials, players can choose from several million different levels, which are randomly generated with the help of a procedural algorithm. Hundreds of handcrafted segments are the basis for this algorithm. Additionally, players are able to compete against each other in so called daily, weekly and monthly challenges, which are based on predefined, randomly generated levels. Goal of the game is to finish the levels as fast as possible and set highscores. These highscores are tracked and uploaded for each level. Players can compete against others in a kind of asynchronous multiplayer, where the best run of each player is captured and saved automatically as a so called ghost.

To give the players a more personalized and creative experience, the game also offers a Level Editor, where players can build their own levels and share them with the community, and a character customization system with a lot of different accessories.

Schacht was developed by a team of students of the Stuttgart Media University (Hochschule der Medien Stuttgart).

In the Beginning I died very often, but since I didn't want to give up directly, the addiction Potential of the Game quickly became apparent. I think the Function of being able to create your own Levels is very cool, as well as the special Avatar accessories! A very humorous Style! ;)

Nice Jump 'n' Run game which makes a lot of fun. The graphics are quite nice with (very) good performance. I haven't faced any stuttering in-game with on my pc which is important in this genre! The gameplay overall is easy to learn but the feeling for the right position for landing is a little bit trigger and needs some time to master. I'm looking forward for new content and new games from them! :-)

Schacht is a 3D Game that once offers it on Occasion and dispels Boredom. With the Graphics is not to complain, the individual Design of the Character is funny and in general the whole Game principle is very appealing. Well, but what I would still know about the Game would be a multiplayer feature, so you can also play with your Friends on the Bet. By and large I have been very excited about this Game and would recommend it to others. :)

Product received for free Early Access Review I was already allowed to play the Game at MediaNight (Media College) and was thrilled by the Game itself. Great Game idea with appealing design, good Engine and Sound. It's the Little Things you realize it's not fully mature yet:-The Aperture before each Level hacks tremendously, which is expandable-Within the Levels, the Difficulty could rise faster-I personally became a Camera ride before each Level through the Find level great, of course with Option to click them away (but it's a Matter of Taste)

Product received for free is a Rather dull jump on the subjects-platforms hanging in the void. Like space. He'S not clinging. The Graphics are dull, the gameplay too. It Seems that the game was hidden under multiplayer, but on-line is empty. You can run alone, but it's boring. And it is necessary to run on time, and not for pleasure. The Music is dynamic but fast-paced. In General, I think it's a mjortvorozhdjonnoe child. You can take a big discount for the cards. What was The stated science fiction of this game? Probably because it is not free-to-lpay... Graphics 5/10 Gameplay 6/10 Sound 8/10 Plot 0/10 Localization 10/10 The Game was obtained under the program of interaction with curators.
