The action RPG Chronicon is released on Steam and convinces with strong 95% positive reviews. What was that game?

Was it for a game? Chronicon (PC) is an Action RPG on Steam that was released back in 2020 and was developed by Subworld.

The game puts you in a world where evil has been completely defeated and every treasure chest has been looted. So that you could still shred your way through masses of enemies and collect loot in typical hack ‘n’ slay fashion, people created a mysterious device called the Chronicon.

The Chronicon has a special ability. A portal can be created to the memories of heroes from days long past. With this portal, chosen people can revive the story, slip into the shoes of the former heroes and fight the evils of the past. And plunder treasure chests.

  • Exotic Fanta: “Now I’ve been on Steam for ages and played all sorts of things – Titan Quest, Grim Dawn and hundreds of other games like Diablo 1, 2, 3. And what did I randomly find in my library here? I honestly can’t remember how I got into this game, but it’s the best hack ‘n’ slash game I’ve played since Diablo 2 (via Steam).”
  • Badseb: “Behind little promising information […] and the unspectacular graphics, a small pearl is hidden. Under the not particularly pretty robe is a genuine Hack’n’Slay, which turns out to be quite complex on closer inspection. […] All in all a very good and comprehensive game, which is hidden under the less than splendid dress of a 2D pixel game (via Steam).”
  • surikum: “Really a nice game. A hack and slay that is addictive. You can tell the lie in the details. I recommend it for genre fans (via Steam)!”
  • Primus: “Every A-RPG developer should be forced to play this game. It has everything you need and everything you expect. You won’t regret it if you are Diablo/ PoE/ Grimdawn or whatever fans. Because apart from the pixel art graphics, there is nothing to complain about, absolutely nothing (via Steam)!”
