Chakan is a fairly standard platform game in which you control a dead guy (Chakan has lost his soul) through many levels of hack and slash platforming. The ultimate goal is defeat all the bad-guys and so finally achieve inner-peace.

The story-line (if you can call it that), does give this game an interesting image and it is much darker than most other titles available on the Genesis.

Cancelled sequel

Development on a Dreamcast sequel by AndNow LLC was started in 1998. After a last mention about the game in October 2000, it was eventually cancelled, but never officially. Content from the unfinished game was taken and used in the Legacy of Kain: Blood Omen 2.


Chakan was originally from an obscure comic book. The game became so popular that more people recognize the the game than the comic.
