Resident Evil returns to its fixed camera roots in this Steam horror game

Do you want a Steam horror game inspired by the early fixed-camera Resident Evil games? Then ‘Echoes of the Living’ is the game for you.What do you think of a new Steam horror game that emulates the fixed camera of the first Capcom Resident Evil games? If that sounds like your cup of tea, I have some good news for you: an indie developer is working on making that exact game a reality, and you can wishlist it on Steam right now while you wait for the soon-to-be-released demo.

The game, called ‘Echoes of the Living’, is clearly inspired by the classic Resident Evil games, which focused on survival horror and puzzle solving, right down to the use of gorgeous environments, zombies, and fixed cameras.

Set for release in Q4 2023 on Steam and with a "demo available soon," the project is being developed by MoonGlint and KurauAmami, and you can check out some astounding early footage in the new trailer below.

Set in a small northern European town in 1996, Echoes of the Living has you play as either Laura or Liam after a mysterious fog envelopes the townsfolk and wildlife, turning them into zombies and horrific creatures of the night - expect giant spiders (you've been warned).

Fixed camera angles, puzzles, inventory management, save rooms and item storage, multiple stories for each character, and a plethora of weapons to keep you safe are all present. If this sounds familiar, it's because MoonGlint has already put their indie game development skills to the test with smaller projects that added first and third-person modes to titles like Resident Evil and others.

You can check out the horror game ‘Echoes of the Living’ right now on Steam; we'll keep an eye out for when the demo goes live and let you know; MoonGlint has told us it should be between two and three weeks. Also, make sure to follow MoonGlint on Twitter for project updates.
