And we went full circle. Daymare 1998 is a horror game that was heavily inspired by the classic Resident Evil games. This indie title has just come out on Steam, and there is a demo that you can download. Furthermore, there is already a mod that allows gamers to play as its protagonist in Resident Evil 2 Remake.
In case you weren’t aware of, Daymare 1998 is a third-person survival horror with hardcore survival mechanics and hard to kill enemies. According to the devs, the game requires a strategical approach to combat and puzzles. Moreover, it promises to offer a multi-character point of view on the story, revealing a deep and obscure lore.
Players will have to survive to this waking nightmare that has its roots in a nostalgic mood. The game’s narration is full of direct references to the pop culture of the 90’s. Also, its modern gameplay mechanics aim to fit perfectly with the old school survival horror atmosphere.
Daymare: 1998 also boasts the contribution of Capcom’s former game artist Satoshi Nakai (Resident Evil 0, Resident Evil Code Veronica) who is currently working on the design of the deadly creatures that will haunt the game.
Ironically, the following mod for Resident Evil 2 Remake is perhaps the best way via which players can experience Daymare 1998. And I’m saying this because Daymare 1998 is an indie game, full of shortcomings. This mod basically replaces Leon (Police) & Hunk with Liev.
