‘Prototype Mansion’ Throws Back to Classic ‘Resident Evil’

Old-school survival horror may be a thing of the past, but that doesn’t stop some developers from revisiting the heydays of the genre. Take Jupiter Lighthouses’ Prototype Mansion, which just had its first trailer posted, which immediately brings to mind the very first Resident Evil game. Blocky polygonal models? Fixed camera angles? Slow-opening doors that transition from one area to the next? It’s all here. And don’t forget those zombies!

The game has you playing as Detective Lady Detective as she and her partner “do a thing” in a spooky mansion. Now obviously, Prototype Mansion pokes fun at Resident Evil (and if you’ve played the original, you know why). In fact, if you head over to the game’s official site, the developers have a little fun with things. Right down to the story that they found Prototype Mansion “in a bin out back”. And hey, at $1.99 USD for the game, how can you not take a chance?

    I really hate this type of nostalgia pandering mess,listen people,just because you played this games as a kid doesn’t mean they hold up the same nowadays,these graphics are vomit inducing and you couldn’t pay me to play this thing more than 5 minutes,the old games didn’t have these graphics because of an artistic decision but because the technology was like that at the time,something that these moron developers of this game don’t seem to get .

      Absolutely, I’m sick to death of these “Pixel art” monstrosities, they look fucking hideous and only induce headaches. It’s not cool or “retro” just annoying…

    • Dev here! Agreed.
      So sick of this 32-bit low-poly pixel garbo.

      Devs need to stop making retro call-back trash. Have some artistic integrity! Check this out though… I’ve been working on this game with my buddy, just us two… unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. Completely original. Cheap too.

      Best graphics this side of your 386.

        Good one. Played RE on my Saturn, back in the days, at the time the graphics were amazing in comparison to most games. Really don’t mind retro games, as I still play old games due to my backlog overload. Heck, I love digitalized graphics even! Gonna check your game for sure. And wait for the sellout action focused sequels with lots of explosions…

      • Handled with class, sir. Congrats on completing a game! I’ll check it out.
