Daymare: 1998 Challenge Launches Today; Reward Features Players In-Game

Invader Studios challenges Kickstarter backers to score big on its Extra Mode demo in order to win an in-game cameo in the full game.

Today, Invader Studios, developer of the survival horror title Daymare: 1998, announced that it has launched its ‘Daymare Challenge.’

The Challenge asks that backers download the Extra Mode demo for Daymare: 1998, and shoot for the highest score, which will be tracked on a leaderboard. Once you feel you’ve got a contending score, you can take a screenshot of the game score and email it to Invader at The demo is available to anyone who has backed the game on Kickstarter.

The winner of the challenge will be featured in Daymare: 1998, though it’s unclear exactly how. Certain pledge rewards for the crowdfunding campaign allow backers to be featured in the game’s phonebooks or even as full-blown characters.

Daymare: 1998 is a survival horror title that is looking to revive the genre’s tropes of the 90’s., focusing on third-person perspectives, inventory management, environmental puzzle-solving, and tough-as-nails enemies.

Daymare: 1998’s Kickstarter campaign began on February 15. Invader Studios is looking for $189,947.00 to fully fund the game for a release on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
