Retro survival horror Alisa finally gets console release date

Comments Off on Retro survival horror Alisa finally gets console release date

This is a game that’s been on my radar for quite some time showcased on survival horror social media channels such as Biohazard Declassified and Residence of Evil, but finally, the retro-inspired Alisa is finally coming to consoles.

Published by Top Hat Studios and created by indie developer Casper Croes, Alisa was first released on PC in 2021 and it’s inspired by survival horror games of the 1990s that were released on systems such as the original PlayStation and Nintendo 64.

“Elite Royal Agent Alisa – hot on the heels of a notorious thief in a fantastical world somewhat reminiscent of the 1920s – finds herself suddenly whisked away to an old, bizarre, Victorian-style mansion,” reads the description of the game. “Haunted by the mansion’s strange, mechanised doll-like inhabitants and trapped in a world upside-down, Alisa has only one priority: survive and escape. But can she do this with her humanity intact?”

Don’t be fooled by the low-quality graphics and 480p resolution, because it’s by design and from what I’ve seen over the last couple of years, this is an homage to survival horror games of yesteryear that fans should be excited about. You can even close more modern or classic tank controls.

Alisa will be released on PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch on 6 February 2024.
