The Dead Space remake’s authors tried to enhance immersion and make the game more terrifying and unpredictable. The result has already been experienced by project technical director David Robillard (David Robillard). He admitted that he had had to play at night while wearing headphones. Now “too scary”.
Players will be more scared by the remake thanks to “Operator Of Stress” (The Intensity director), which generates random events.
“When I play it at night, I can’t use headphones because I get too scared, Robillard stated this in an interview for PLAY magazine. GamesRadar also writes about it. — It has become more realistic and atmospheric. This goes for the visuals as well as the sound, effects, and systems that create scary events. While all of this could be achieved on the PlayStation 4 at the same time, it’s not possible to do so at the level we have. These innovations bring a lot to the genre and make the gaming experience truly seamless.”
Philippe Ducharme, Senior Producer for the remake, stressed the importance immersion in the same interview. “When we started working on the project, I went through the original several times to make sure that my plan was correct, – He said. — I made sure that immersion is one of the main features of this game, so we did everything to enhance it.”
DuCharme says that the creators wanted gamers to play for as long as they could, without any interruptions. “Our goal was to make a person want to go through the entire game in one sitting – let it be 12, 14, 15 hours in a row. It is impossible to even force yourself to use the toilet after such strong immersion. Ducharme laughed. “Yes, it’s unhealthy, but the game should be exciting.”
Ducharme said that the remake was designed for both newcomers and fans. The remake will offer nostalgic experiences for long-time fans as well as new experiences. “If we talk about the opening part, the original and the remake are very similar, He explained. — After reading a few chapters you’ll notice the discrepancies. All changes must be consistent with our core principles. It’s not because our team is better than the original team that we have reworked something. They did an outstanding job.”
Robillard stated that the player will not feel safe, even though he knows these places well.
