Daymare: 1998 originally started out as a Resident Evil 2 remake known as Resident Evil 2 Reborn, and it shows. There’s a lot of leftover DNA from that remake, that this game never gets far enough away from that to be anything more. This is art imitating art, and as flattering as it may be, pales in comparison to the Capcom remake released just this year. Developer Invader Studios made a game that revels in its own nostalgia of the era where survival horror reigned supreme. While Daymare: 1998 sounds cool and sometimes looks cool, it suffers from a lack of polish and poor gameplay that detracts from what would otherwise be a decent entry for the genre.
1C is thrilled to announce that it will be working with indie developer Destructive Creations, adding their current work-in-progress title to its portfolio. In development since 2015, the game will take players into the early Middle ages, with both an extensive singleplayer campaign and intense online multiplayer, all built around real events and featuring historical accuracy and advanced game mechanics. More about the forthcoming title will be revealed on May 9th 2017 and a full-scale hands-on presentation is planned for this year’s Gamescom.
Destructive Creations is back with IS Defense, a game with satisfying gameplay and unyielding explosions that’s not as easy as it seems. This is also one of those games that could easily be translated to mobile or a VR game, it has many more applications than just being a PC game. IS Defense is a side-project and the developer’s statement about current affairs in the world today, and where things might be heading. Whether that comes to light or not, we’ve got this entertaining piece of quasi-fiction to kill with mind-numbing ease.
