Daymare: 1998 is interesting, because it in fact started out life as an unofficial Resident Evil 2 fan remake. Obviously, it’s become its own thing – but it shares many similarities to the Resident Evil series as a result. Expect zombies, jump scares, dark corridors, an annoying inventory management system and more – yep, it packs in everything you like (and don’t like) about the Resident Evil series.
It’s an indie game, so Daymare: 1998 is perhaps not as polished as an actual Resident Evil game would be. But for fans of the series, it’s certainly worth picking up. Rather than being a Resident Evil-like cash-in, it tries to do its own thing too, playing with the genre in new ways. They don’t always pay off, but it’s a worthwhile play all the same. Pick it up on PS4, Xbox One or PC.
