'Daymare: 1998' - New Screens & Trailer

Daymare: 1998 is a hardcore survival horror experience inspired by the visual style and the atmosphere evoked by cult movies of the 1990s.

Developed in Unreal Engine 4, Daymare: 1998 is a third person survival horror game with over the shoulder camera, and features high-end graphics, original soundtrack, immersive atmosphere, hardcore survival mechanics and many connections with the beloved old school survival horror games and '90s landmark brands.

Daymare: 1998 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!

In the late 90s, the normally peaceful citizens of a small community in northwest America descend into sickening violence.   With enemy designs by the legendary former Capcom designer, Satoshi Nakai, the physical and mental deformations that take place within the community are set to be both terrifying and shocking.

Invader Studios shot to prominence with their unofficial remake of Resident Evil 2, named ‘Resident Evil 2: Reborn’.  The reception was almost unbelievable and prompted Capcom to create an official remake.

The team at Invader Studios said “What an incredible few months.  After the success of our initial Daymare 1998 announcement, we took the build on the road to Milan and Rome and received so much positive feedback that we were inspired to show our progress to the wider world and release this trailer.  We really hope you like it.”  The team also added, “We also want to announce that we are going to run a kickstarter campaign in early 2017.  The support and the passion of our fans has been overwhelming and will be essential to make the dream of Daymare: 1998 come true, giving life to the nostalgic survival horror experience that everybody is waiting for.”

Key Features:

  • A multi-character "can't-stop-playing" storyline
  • Your favourite survival horror nightmares are back to haunt you! (Limited save points, anyone?)
  • Foes outnumber ammunition, you have been warned!
  • Tons of references to the '90s pop culture and horror movie hat-tips (and a lot of raccoons too...)
  • Original scary, creepy, thrilling, handmade soundtrack

Inspired by the terrifying experiences of  true 1990’s survival horror games, Invader Studios believe their own  take on modern gameplay mechanics fits perfectly with the old school survival horror atmosphere they love.
