Resident Evil was the scariest of the PS1 era, when classic survival horror relied on limited ammo, tough enemies, and forced you to return to your last save point instead of continuing. But that’s not to say modern games can’t bother you either: An unforgiving roguelike where any wrong move can end in irrevocable death and every encounter feels like your last, Darkest Dungeon is guaranteed to get even the most horrific roguelike. horror fans sweat in their seats.

That’s why You Will Die Here Tonight, the upcoming horror game from indie developer Spiral Bound, has us biting our nails and leaping into our shadows as it takes the iconic aesthetics and demanding mechanics of classic Resident Evil and combines them with irreversible death. and survival on the razor’s edge of the Darkest Dungeon.

The premise is simple: As a six-man SWAT team named ARIES is ARIES, not STARS, you’re exploring a mansion, again, not yet STARS, that’s overrun with zombies and riddled with booby traps, well maybe we can just call them STARS. It’s a direct homage to Resident Evil with characters like Jill, Barry and Chris rounding out the cast and breaking wall traps clearly inspired by the famous “sandwich” scene.

But there is a twist. According to the title, you must die, but instead of completing the game, you simply move on to the next member of ARIA and pick up where the last character left off. This is where the Darkest Dungeon corner comes into play. For one thing, constant kills give you an edge as you crawl through the dungeon to pick up your old gear and continue the narrative without artificial interruptions or restarts. On the other hand, if the zombies have bitten your comrade, they’ll come back from the dead to try to kill you too, at which point “You’ll Die Here Tonight” changes from a top-down 3D rendering to a first-class rendering. person reminiscent of the knife fight scenes from Resident Evil: Deadly Silence.

Horror, survival, bagels and nostalgia. It’s a powerful mix and we can’t wait to play You Will Die Here Tonight when it’s released later this year. In the meantime, you can add the game to your Steam wishlist right now.
