It had a water-based BOW focus, "Choice" moments where time slowed down & you'd have a period to make a choice of some kind (TellTale inspired), there was a polished 30-60 minute demo of the thing made in late 2012-Late 2013, but it pic.twitter.com/QqU9rr7DDj

Resident Evil 7 would have a similar gameplay to the previous Resident Evil games. The game would take place in a city, loosely inspired by Venice. Furthermore, it would have “Choice” moments where time slowed down and you’d have a period to make a choice of some kind. Not only that, but it had a water-based BOW focus.
To be honest, I’m quite happy with how Resident Evil 7 turned out. While it didn’t have any of our favourite characters, it was a great game. It also brought back the series to a more “horror” style.
Anyway, it’s really cool witnessing screenshots from older/canceled Resident Evil projects. And, if you are die-hard fans of the series, I’m sure you’ll appreciate these screenshots.
