Chasing Static – modern horror in PS1 graphics

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.
