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

Daymare: 1998 is a third person survival horror with hardcore survival mechanics, hard to kill enemies, strategical approach to combat and puzzles, with a multi-character point of view on the story, and a deep and obscure lore.

A secret research facility, a deadly chemical weapon and three people who play crucial roles in finding the truth about an incident with a potential to become more than just a security breach. Follow the steps of an elite soldier, a helicopter pilot and a forest ranger, as they become the main characters in an event that transforms one peaceful small town into a deadly zone and its citizens into bloodthirsty monsters. Make sure to take them down first, before looking for clues and evidence to bring more sense to the mess. Keep track of your itinerary, as resources are scarce in a situation like this! And anything can happen when your daymares become real…

All fans of the 90s’ iconic cinematographic brands and classical gloomy survival horror games will be thrilled, seeing how Daymare: 1998 recreates the atmosphere of the most beloved works from the end of the millennium and places a typical yet fresh story in the middle of it. The plot unfolds through the eyes of various characters, putting players in the shoes of different personalities that will guide them through their theories and doubts about the situation. Backtracking, managing ammo, collecting lore items, solving environmental puzzles and the overall difficulty will help players jump a couple decades back and get chilled to the bone in their first real daymare.

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. 

Destructive Creations teamed up with Invader Studios, the talented guys who used to work on a remake of Resident Evil 2, and will be publishing Daymare: 1998, their current project! DC team is also putting resources into it, working on certain animations, cutscenes and various other parts of the game to make sure it’s well polished for its PC release in Q2 2019.

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
