PS1-lookin’ horror game Back in 1995 is coming to Steam April 28

Pretty sure this is what the inside of my brain looks like

Between Back in 1995 and Banned Memories: Yamanashi, there looks to be a resurgence in ’90s survival horror. After Steven wrote about the former almost exactly a year ago, developer Ichijou Takaaki went radio silent, though you could still faintly hear static traveling through the fog as writhing masses of flesh brushed against your ankle.

Now the game has appeared on Steam with a release date of April 28, though as of right now there’s no price. Those who crave the old atmosphere and wobbly textures of the original PlayStation will “be transported to a world both concrete and indistinct, where you must uncover the mystery surrounding the disappearance of your daughter, the catastrophe that shook the city, and why you’ve decided to finally return.”

I’m ready for some fixed camera angles and CRT emulation, baby. I’m also digging the bizarre voice acting in the teaser below. I’ve also included an hour of gameplay that Stephen Turner spotted for us underneath that (start at about 26 minutes in). Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go bug Chris until he lets me review Back in 1995.
