Play Chasm: The Rift with PanzerChasm

Chasm: The Rift on Windows 10.Released in 1997 for DOS, Chasm was kind of an unknown first person shooter. It looks a lot like Quake, its enemies have more details than those of Quake, but Chasm misses a true 3D environment. Although the game plays just fine with DOSBox, there's also a source port for Windows available called PanzerChasm, which allows you to play Chasm: The Rift on Windows 10, Windows 8 and Windows 7. However, the CD music seems not to be working, and the OpenGL rendering option is quite buggy. Nevertheless, it allows you to play Chasm: The Rift in super high resolutions on Windows 10.
