Independently developed 3D platformer SCHiM is planned for release on consoles and through Steam. The game's stylized, abstract graphical art style depicts Dutch-inspired locales, limited to four colors per level.

Developed by Ewoud van der Werf in collaboration with level designer Nils Slijkerman, the player controls a human spirit or "Schim" separated from its owner. To return home, the Schim must jump from shadow to shadow, looking for a way back.

The SCHiM EP sampler previews five music tracks composed for the game by Brazilian band Moonsailor. Piano is by Rafael Langoni, with Gabriel Marques on synthesizers, Pedro Araujo on acoustic guitar and ukulele, Renan Martins on drums, with Dirceu Leite and Yuri Villar on flutes.

SCHiM is planned for release this year for Windows, Mac, and Linux, along with Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PS4 and PlayStation 5 consoles. The EP is available through Bandcamp and streaming on Spotify. Music previews can be viewed on YouTube, courtesy of Black Screen Records.
