YouTube’s ‘Punish’ has shared a video, showing an hour of gameplay footage from its upcoming horror game, that is heavily inspired by the Resident Evil series, DAYMARE 1998. Daymare: 1998 is based on the cancelled Resident Evil 2 Reborn project, is built on the Unreal Engine 4, and will have the legendary Director of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis and planner on the original 1996 Resident Evil, Kazuhiro Aoyama, as its Producer Associate.
DAYMARE: 1998 is a third-person survival horror with hardcore survival mechanics and hard to kill enemies. It requires a strategical approach to combat and puzzles and offers a multi-character point of view on the story, revealing a deep and obscure lore.
In this new horror game, players are expected 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 and the 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.
We strongly suggest watching this video as it will give you an idea of what this third-person horror game is all about (obviously, and since it’s one hour long, this video may contain some spoilers so you’ve been warned).
DAYMARE: 1998 will be available for the PC this Summer.
