The newcomers Headware Games and the publisher Ratalaika have put their heads together in Chasing Static. The game is rendered in an incredibly nostalgic PlayStation look with low-resolution textures, barely animated facial movements and a rendering distance like a short stone’s throw. The most conscious look is a tribute to classic horror games like Silent Hill and Resident Evil, games that “had a big impact on me and gave me nightmares for years,” says Headware founder Nathan Hamley.
Chasing Static has a planned release during the third quarter of this year and comes in the formats Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC via Steam. Stakeholders can test one demo already now, but only for a limited time. However, it requires you to play via Steam.
