    i can't believe how closely they matched everything to the PS1-era graphics, music and sound FX. the doll enemies even look a bit creepy.

    The first "PS1-games-inspired retro horror" that actually looks the part.

    It's doing such a good job of it it's actually a little weird to see camera angles it's pulling straight from the original Resident Evil because it's doing such a good job of it. The weirdness of it reminds me of D.

    Here's a link to the project:

    I'm wishing him the best of luck, I'd love to see this as a completed project. It already puts tons of paid indies to shame.

    Check this out, she can get alternate outfits and can go pseudo-Schutzstaffel.

    She also puts Tifa in the FF7 remake to shame. :cool:

    It would be nice if bits of plastic or ceramic came out when you shoot the dolls for better feedback.

    The whole style seems to ape the original RE1. Angles, rooms (that bathtub room), etc. Even some of the textures seem stolen.

    Still, cool.

    Looks like cabbage patch ?lady? On the left is ready to barf while chick on the right is giving a double "fuck you bird finger flipping" launching herself onto the floor showing her tight ass to everyone.

    YEAH, she ain't no fan of blue orphan annie walking in. Neither of them are.

    So she's packing heat and just about every door is locked. You'd think she'd could shoot out the locks, bust vases, tear up the house. Etc.

    in case anyone was wondering; yeah she can take it off.

    "Alisa" that sounds like "Alice", in a doll house?

    Hopefully it could surpass the creepyness and atmosphere of Madness Returns dollhouse, which they would probably reach with PS1 style. Though tbh the creepyness of Alice's dollhouse is way off the chart with its themes and meanings

    Looks super nice.
    Although IMO it would've looked better if they went with REmake visual style.

    I think I want to play these kinds of games to be spooked, not aroused.

    Why not both?

    The game is "Eeeeeeh..." by the way. There is a problem with aiming, it's too hard to land hits, there isn't the slight assistance present in RE. They know this is a problem since they came up with the little reticle that turns red when aiming correctly, wich is shit: you should aim correctly by looking at the game, not at a little symbol in the corner. They have to fix this. Also: picking up the gears by walking into them is both a drag and super gamey/anti-immersion.

    Same thing
    [​IMG]

    Since it seems like I'm being taken seriously, just to be clear I haven't actually played ANY of the RE games, either the originals or the remakes. You bros probably already see it from me not being able to tell the difference between REmake1 and REmake2. I'm not even aware there's a remake to the first game.
    TL;DR I'm just fucking around xD

    Pity it isn't spookier. I love spooky obscure weird shit but i just don't think that's going to happen. Itd be ok to play through though. Sexy? Eh no, but i suspect someone will nude mode or sexywear mode it.

    "immersion" is the enemy of good gaming.

    While having to pick up little pieces of crap by walking on them with tank controls + fixed cameras is a TRU 31337 GAMERZ experience. :D

    "limitations of controls is a bad thing"

    "why are there rules in a soccer game, why can't I pick up the ball with my hands instead of my feet it's dumb"

    Games are defined by their limitations and how you overcome them within their framework dimwit

    The less limitations/rules there are the dumber and less skillful the game is, ie all those modern open world sores that barely qualify as "games"
