Paratopic, a free indie horror game with old school 3D graphics, is releasing this Monday. The game's developers point to Twin Peaks as an inspiration and the game's story follows three different characters.
Jesus. They weren't lying about low resolution. Ha ha.
i dont know why but i find low polygon games like resident evil 1 to be scarier than new games with realistic graphics something about low polygon makes it look surreal and less details makes you fill in the rest of the details
Absolutely, I agree. System Shock 2 still makes me wet my pants, maybe even more than Dead Space.
I just got flashbacks of the first Alone in the Dark.
"Genius idea guys! We put in minimal effort, end up with an intentionally super ugly game and everyone will praise us like we're pushing boundaries!"
Its not "minimal effort".
Maybe not minimal, but much less effort. Ask a developer if it's cheaper and if there is less work involved when making retro games. Compare this game to something like Ghost of a Tale, done by one person and tell me which one required the most effort, time and dedication to make.
I have been waiting for something like this to come along. I love the eeriness. Was totally hooked to SH1 on the PS3 (!).And by now, this is retro, too. Nothing wrobg with polygons instead of pixels. Still better than Turok 1 and 2 rerelease :)
