The release date for Daymare: 1998 is now set for September as we also get a nice little demo to entice us more for Daymare: 1998
Buckle up, as it looks like we now have a release date set down for Daymare: 1998 for us all. Well, at least all of the PC gamers out there as it looks like Invader Studios is ready to let it loose on Steam on September 17th. So ready that they have even placed out a nice, new demo for Daymare: 1998 to get the ball rolling and more interest in the game ahead of launch. The usual rigmarole that is afforded to us by the platform and everything. It will be interesting to see where it all goes from there in the following month too.
Along with this announcement comes a few other bits for Daymare: 1998. Obviously, we have a new trailer for the game to show off a little more gameplay and more of the story we will be getting deep into. Also a smaller announcement that All In! Games is looking to bring Daymare over to the PS4 and Xbox One at a later date. That later date is still to be determined, but it is in the plans. Let us all hope that it does not go down as we have seen for other games that did the same release structure. I am talking in terms of the smaller studios and not the bigger ones that could afford to go down this path.
Daymare: 1998 — Meet Sam
Daymare: 1998 recreates the atmosphere of the most beloved works from the end of the millennium and places you in the middle of a familiar yet fresh story. The plot unfolds through the eyes of multiple characters, putting players in the shoes of different personalities that will guide them through their theories and doubts about the situation. Thanks to backtracking, ammo management, collectible lore items, environmental puzzles, and the overall level of difficulty, players can rewind a couple of decades to where, in their first real daymare, they will be chilled to the bone.
The nightmare lives in the Release Date Announcement Trailer of Daymare: 1998. Check it out above and meet Sam, the second of three main characters in the game.
Unlike Liev, who was introduced in the previous trailer, Sam is what you’d call “a regular guy”. He likes his neighbors and has no personal aspirations to attain riches or fame. But he is reliable and does what needs to be done. Sam’s also a respected citizen of Keen Sight, partially a result of his job as Forest Ranger. Although, there is a limit to how much credit you can take for staring off into the horizon and strolling through the woods to make sure the trees are still standing.
Nevertheless, Sam’s a loving husband who adores his wife. If it weren’t for his condition and his need to manage it with pills, he’d probably be the happiest guy on Earth. But that isn’t what he was meant to be. Not after he crosses paths with H.A.D.E.S. Sam was meant for something more. Not for himself, not even for the woman he loves, but for the whole city of Keen Sight.
