This is how we would have played Horizon Zero Dawn in the 90s: Aloy’s adventure already has its demake for PS1

The fashion of demakes is one of the most devastating in recent years. We have them in all shapes and colors, which allows us to imagine how Resident Evil Village would be played on the first PlayStation or even a version in which The Last of Us would remind us a lot of Metal Gear Solid.


Now, another Sony exclusive receives a version with a much smaller number of polygons. Horizon Zero Dawn looks like a release for the PS1 in the late 90s and the truth is that it makes it clear to us why the games of yesteryear were much more difficult.

A Watcher appears to quickly annihilate Aloy and leave her out of combat, which gives us a message from “You Died” very similar to Dark Souls. This great work has been done by ZeoNyph, who has modeled, rendered and implemented the textures on his own.

To do this, he has used the Blender program and of course has lowered the resolution enough to make the retro sensation more present. The protagonist’s bow can hardly cope with her first enemy and ZeoNyph shows a small moment of climbing like the one we can do in the work of Guerrilla Games.


The truth is that the vast majority of these demakes cannot be played and are simply an example of the mastery of some fans. Those who took it much more seriously were the developers of Bloodborne PSX, which you can play for free.
