Fans create an incredible demake of Resident Evil Zero
The YouTube channel Hack Games Longplay Channel presented the project of a group of fans of Capcom’s zombie franchise who undertook the task of making a demake of Resident Evil Zero to make it look like it was a launch game on the first PlayStation. This team used the Resident Evil 2 engine and has been working to give shape, look and functionality to every detail so that the essence of the game starring Rebecca Chambers and Billy Cohen is maintained but with a style of the late 90s era. on the Sony console.
Resident Evil Zero was intended for N64 but moved to the GameCube
The project is not finished, but all the parts you see in the video are playable. In case you don’t know, Resident Evil 0 was the first title to emerge from the unexpected relationship between Capcom and Nintendo. The goal was for it to come out on Nintendo 64 but its proposal of 2 protagonists and the changes of scenarios were impossible to achieve quickly due to the limitations of the console. Hence, it was decided to move the project to the new system, GameCube, where it became a reality in 2002.
Despite the console change, there was promotional material anticipating its launch and Capcom presented videos at some events announcing the new installment of the franchise that this time would work as a prequel. By then, Capcom was moving away from PlayStation and the years to come saw more support from the Japanese company for the GameCube, however, dismal sales of the system made them reconsider their decision.
