Fans of survival horror games such as the critically acclaimed Resident Evil series have felt a bit of disdain as games in the genre have started moving more towards action. While titles like Resident Evil 6 abandon the conventions of the genre, titles that stick to them such as ZombiU don’t measure up to the classics. Daymare: 1998, a title from a recently launched Kickstarter promises to launch the genre back into its former glory.
This title, which is being developed by Invader Studios, promises in its description to bring back the beloved atmosphere of the 80s and 90s. These titles, which offer players a more alternative way to enjoy horror, are incredibly critically acclaimed. This title, Daymare promises to bring back the atmosphere of films of the genre as well, which could have a major impact on survival horror altogether.
The intention of Daymare is to create a genuine oppressive sense of danger. This element is comparable to games like Outlast which create a genuine sense of difficult stacked odds, and require an extra level of attention from the player, as they are truly without allies.
This title has the support of quite a few big names from Capcom, including a lot of big names from the critically acclaimed Resident Evil series of the same genre. To have such legends in the field standing behind a title clearly shows its potential.
As this is an all or nothing goal on Kickstarter, it depends on the entirety of its goal in order for the developers to receive any of the funding. This of course means that the crowdfunding aspect of this game is integral to its success. This of course, isn’t without reward for the consumer.
The option to back this product comes with numerous tiers for potential backer rewards, from digital copies of the game, to mention in some of its phone books, and much more. For more information on these options, as well as the game itself visit the official Kickstarter page listed below.
