Prototype Mansion - Used No Cover is a retro inspired survival horror from Jupiter Lighthouse Games that actually looks pretty good.

The game features classic Resident Evil styled gameplay, in a low resolution inspired by much older systems (like the Amiga). They do have a warning that it features "explicit violence and gore in troves", so do keep that in mind.

Reminds me of Alone in the Dark series (1992).

There's a lot of the original Resident Evil in this. I think a friend of mine might like it.

The Outbreak series also follows this style, although with modern graphics.

Definitely inspired by Alone in the Dark. Nice to see release!

I had neither sound nor visual.

To get sound, I installed pulseaudio/alsa 32-bit.
To get visual, I set Unity to Fullscreenmode = 0.

Haven't figured out how to get the game fullscreen though. :/
