The future is now! Or then. Or, tomorrow?

Do you love the old days of survival horror? I can't believe I just referred to those as "the old days." Ugh, I'm getting old. Anyway, if you love those retro classics like the original Resident Evil, Silent Hill, or Nightmare Creatures, then you're in luck - Back in 1995 hits consoles this week!

In this game, you'll work in a low-rez nightmare world, where blocky evil lurks around every corner. Can you solve the mystery around these monsters, or will you become another victim? Be sure to check out the trailer below, and pick up the game for $9.99 when it hits consoles this week.

Per Ratalaika Games' press release:

Once upon a time, we lived in an age where gaming sessions didn’t just see us play games, but cables would come loose, and game cartridges would need to be reinserted. Those days may be far behind us, but the 80’s and 90’s live on in our memories and our hearts.

It is because of that fondness for what once was that some developers can’t help but create video games inspired by their childhood and the games they played, and thus we come to Back in 1995.

Developed by Throw the Warped code out and previously released on the likes of Steam and New Nintendo 3DS, Back in 1995 is a survival horror game that is a both a throwback and a recreation of games from a bygone era and it's Ratalaika Games’ pleasure to announce that is 90’s inspired classic, has been ported to PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
