Welcome to Schacht!

We are happy and excited to announce that Schacht has now been fully released!
Within about four and a half months of Early Access and with the feedback of the community, our team behind Schacht has continued to put a lot of time and effort into improving the game and developing it further.

Schacht is all about challenges - for example, try to pronounce "Schacht" correctly! Other than that, the game offers daily, weekly, and monthly challenges for you to compete in against your friends and players from all over the world. Find out who is the fastest, set new highscores, and become number 1. Let your friends grow desperate while they try to follow your ghost in the asynchronous multiplayer!

Our procedural algorithm gives you the freedom to choose from 4.294.967.296 different levels. We tested all of them and can assure you that most of them are great (two or three sucked though)! Still have too much time on your hand? The Training Mode provides you with levels that are literally endless.

If you are still not satisfied with the variety of levels and have hunger for more, try out the Level Editor! With some creativity, you can craft your own fancy levels, upload them to the workshop and share them with the community.

The character customization system offers a broad variety of accessories and items for you to choose from. Wear a mustache! Carry a banana around in space! Take out the trash! Put on some wings or a tutu! Nobody will judge you.

And no matter what other important things you might have to do right now, in Schacht you can literally run away from your responsibilities.

Enough talking now... Tie your shoelaces and get ready to run. We are looking forward to see you in the highscore lists - if you're fast enough!

About This Game

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).
