The House of the Dead: Remake is a refreshed version of the iconic rail shooter created by SEGA. It was developed by two Polish teams: Forever Entertainment and MegaPixel Studio.

Plot

As a classic remake, the new version of The House of the Dead doesn't introduce major changes in the plot of the original. We follow agents Thomas Rogan and G, who are sent to the laboratory of DBR corporation in order to explain the causes of mysterious disappearances of local residents. It quickly turns out that the research of Dr. Curien, who runs the facility, has resulted in a plague of horrors that Thomas and his partner never dreamt of even in their worst nightmares.

Mechanics

The House of the Dead: Remake also remains faithful to the original in terms of gameplay, being a classic example of a rail shooter. The player has no direct control over the protagonist - they can only move the crosshair to shoot the zombies and other monsters created by Curien as quickly as possible. This not only avoids taking damage, but also translates into a higher point score at the end of a stage.

Game modes

Like most rail shooters, The House of the Dead: Remake offers only one game mode, but with the possibility to play it in co-op mode (or point-based rivalry). Game length is further extended by the presence of several endings.

Technical aspects

Although the plot and gameplay have remained essentially unchanged, the Polish developers have modernised other elements of The House of the Dead: Remake, with 3D graphics at the forefront. The developers have also adapted the game's controls to modern standards.
