    Daymare: 1998 is an interesting homage to the Resident Evil franchise, complete with 90s graphics, cheesy characters, and a tough difficulty. Inventory management forces you to think carefully, while boss fights can be tedious and unfair.

    Daymare: 1998 is an unapologetic love letter to horror games of the 90's and especially the Resident Evil series. It may be janky and tough at times, which is likely to put off newcomers, but it will have a certain appeal to the fans of the genre.

    Daymare: 1998 is a hardcore survival horror purposely created by fans, for fans. Despite some technical flaws and hiccups, typical of independent productions, it recreates the atmosphere of the old school gems.

    Daymare: 1998 feels like going back to visit a friend from school who still lives a youthful life free of responsibility. It's fun for a while, but you eventually realise that there is a reason you left that lifestyle behind. Were this released before Capcom's own Resident Evil 2 remake, its issues might not have been so apparent. Oddly stranded in time, this now feels too clunky for newcomers and is one for genre aficionados interested in the evolution of survival horror.

    Daymare 1998 is at once a breath of fresh air and a spiritually genuine revisitation of survival horror's heyday, so it's no stretch to say that players new and old will find something to enjoy here.

    I’d still recommend this game if good world-building, easter-egg hunting and puzzles are what you are looking for in survival horror titles because those elements are fantastic. But beware, as clunky mechanics and repetitive design definitely drag things down, Still, Daymare 1998 is an ambitious first game from the young Invader Studios that showcases their immense potential, and I wish them nothing but the best for what’s to come.

    Daymare 1998 is meant to be a blast from the past but all it really does is destroy your old memories of those 90s horror games you played so long ago.

Possui todos os elementos essenciais de um survivor horror.

    Evidentemente, possui alguns problemas técnicos e gráficos bastante simples. Entretanto, considerando o baixo orçamento e a pequena equpe que o produziu, o resultado final foi muito bom! E, apesar de tudo, é muito divertido de se jogar.

    Torço para que o jogo faça sucesso e haja, em breve, uma sequência com mais investimentos
