Resident Evil (1996) [PS1]

As the first game of the series, Resident Evil is a single player survival horror game focused on two members of an elite task force intended to enforce the law, called S.T.A.R.S.

There is a choice to play as either Chris Redfield or Jill Valentine and progression through the story starts after one of their team members goes missing.

Quite early in the game, the characters find themselves locked in a mansion along with a slew of all types of monsters and mutants. While navigating the mansion and discovering the secrets hidden within, players aim to fully understand the mysteries of the mansion and find their way out.

The game save system is quite unique in Resident Evil. In order to make a save in the game, players are required to find a typewriter and use an ink ribbon on it, however the ink ribbons are limited in availability so saves need to be used carefully.

Documents going into detail about the lore in the game are hidden all throughout the mansion, and they’re needed to progress through the game. There are also clues and items to be found which allow the player to solve puzzles and unlock new areas and items. Although they’re scarce, medical items, weapons and ammo are scattered throughout the mansion as well.
