Schacht is a fast-paced third person 3D platformer set in a science fiction interstellar battle zone. In the highly competitive gameplay you have to run against yourself, your friends and against strangers from all over the world. Players have to complete very challenging tracks as fast as possible, therefore the character has special abilities to overcome different types of obstacles like force fields, deadly platforms, slides or enormous gaps in outer space. Players can choose from over 4 billion different tracks, based on more than 150 different parcour elements, to master.
Let your friends grow desperate while they try to follow your ghost in the asynchronous multiplayer! The best run of each player is captured and saved as a so called ghosts which can then be activated by others to compare themselves with. The PlayStation version of Schacht will also feature a local Split Screen multiplayer. Find out who is the fastest, set new highscores, and become number one!
To compete against others and to maximize the fun, Schacht comes with a league system and highscores for daily, weekly and other challenges. Personalize your experience with the character customization system – it is somewhat silly but definitely worth a try. And if this wasn’t enough, there is even a level editor to build your own levels and share them with the community.
