It seems that the release of Resident Evil 2 inspired indie horror, Daymare: 1998 has been on the cards before the dawn of man and woman.  What first started out as a fan-made Resi 2 project in 2014, then morphed into its own game with the support of Capcom, not to mention a cancelled Kickstarter and a collapsed partnership with Team 17, it’s certainly been a patient wait.

However, we can now rest a little easier, because Daymare: 1998 has just had its new release date officially confirmed for PC and it will release via Steam on September 17th this year.  Yet the news gets even better, because you can download a free playable demo right now on Steam to get an early taste of what the game is all about.

Daymare: 1998 is very much a throwback to Survival Horror games of yesteryear and will have multiple character perspectives, with one of those being voiced by Paul Haddad, the original voice of Leon S. Kennedy from Resident Evil 2.  Developers Invader Studios, as well as partners Destructive Creations and All In, has also released a new gameplay trailer, featuring one of the playable characters known as Sam, who is said to be a normal family man, thrown into a living nightmare in a fight for survival.

You can add Daymare: 1998 to your Steam Wish List and download the playable demo hereDaymare: 1998 will also release on PS4 and Xbox One, with release dates to be announced “shortly”, so we’ll keep you posted when that happens.
