Publisher Destructive Creations and developer Invader Studios are proud to announce the release of the console versions of Daymare: 1998, the successful classic survival horror game that recreates the look and feel of beloved works from the 90’s and plunges players into a familiar yet fresh story. With backtracking, ammo management, collectible lore items, environmental puzzles and gut-twisting challenges, players can rewind a couple of decades back into a terrifying daymare.
Initially formed to create a fan-based remake of the famous Resident Evil 2, the development team at Invader Studios marks another significant milestone with the console release of their original IP DAYMARE: 1998, bringing the game to a new audience of survival horror fans who missed out on the PC release. Slipgate Ironworks Studios was a valuable partner in the porting process and helped bring the game to consoles.
A faithful homage to survival horror classics and the era of the 90s, DAYMARE: 1998’s atmosphere, storyline, characters, classic gameplay mechanics and difficulty, and Easter eggs all blend together to create an experience that fans of the original masterpieces of the genre will appreciate.
