Cory Barlog Gives Seal of Approval on God of War PS1 Demake Project
A little bit of old school God of War never hurt anyone, boy.
Looking back through the years of video games, 1998 was a bit of a banger wasn’t it? With the likes of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Resident Evil 2 and Half-Life being released, we probably spent more time on our consoles than watching Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
Many of us kids of the 90s miss those simpler graphics and also when we didn’t fight on social media about what game is better or worse constantly. To bring back some of that nostalgia, 64 Bits has produced a demake that reimagines God of War into a turn-based RPG from 1998 on the good old PS1.
Over on YouTube, 64 Bits is made up of 3 guys with a huge love for animation and games. With demakes that include Monster Hunter for the Gameboy Color and Cupsouls, Dark Souls animated like Cuphead, under their belts, they thought they’d give God of War a try next.
Incorporating the retro feel of the PlayStation One including some iconic sounds, you can see Kratos, Atreus, and Mimir setting off on their boat before coming up to an island where a Draugr, Nightmare, and Ogre lay in wait for them. Coming in hard with that classic RPG vibe, 64 bits have included a numbered health bar and hit point’s when Kratos and Atreus start a battle.
It’s so brilliantly produced and designed that it even got the attention of Cory Barlog who directed 2018’s God of War. Upon seeing the video on Twitter, Cory tweeted out how much he loved it.
