Control is a game that often goes overlooked or underappreciated by some players. With its foreboding, unsettling atmosphere, tight and responsive gameplay mechanics, and a memorable setting and characters, Control has a lot to offer to those willing to give it a chance. For how amazing the game looks in its base form, the studio behind the Control has given its fans a look at how the game would play on a classic system.
Remedy Entertainment, the studio that developed Control, has been around for quite awhile now. The studio was first known for its work on the Max Payne series, alongside Rockstar Games. Though, it wouldn't be until the release of the studio's landmark title Alan Wake that would garner the studio mainstream attention. In fact, in many ways, the influence of Alan Wake carried itself into Control.
However, likely as part of an April Fools Day prank, Remedy has put out a gameplay video showcasing what Control would look like with PS1 graphics. It's quite shocking to see how similar the PS1 version looks compared to the original, with bodies possessed by The Hiss floating in mid-air, along with how the aesthetic of the Oldest House still manages to remain recognizable in spite of the stylistic change.
This actually became a fairly recent trend for users or game developers to recreate certain popular games and make them to look as though they had launched on an older platform. Many users have taken to using Dreams, the PS4 exclusive title by Media Molecule, to recreate entire games from the ground up or revamp them in different graphical styles. A trend it seems Remedy Entertainment has taken to as well in terms of Control.
It's possible that users will take inspiration from this video and develop PC mods that restyle Control into a PS1 game. Considering how creepy the atmosphere of Control already is, the PS1 graphics could transform the game into more of a Silent Hill-type experience, with potentially new changes in sound design. With any luck, this video could give members of the modding community some ideas.
In any case, it will be interesting to see what Remedy Entertainment does in the future. There are already rumors circulating that Alan Wake 2 is in development, which if that turns out to be true, could be huge for longtime fans of the series. A new Alan Wake installment releasing on next-gen platforms would be a tremendous step-up from the first game, which released on the Xbox 360 over ten years ago. For now, fans will just have to see how things turn out.
Though Control came out in 2019, it has been making waves in recent weeks. The game by Remedy Entertainment focuses on a secret government agency and its new director, Jesse Faden. As the player explores the world of Control, various tools and powers become available to use, and one of these is Jesse's main weapon: a gun that can transform into different models.
The underrated science fiction game takes place in a facility known as the Oldest House, which is a place that can change on a whim, so Jesse must constantly be ready to handle any threat. Part of this involves improving her service weapon so it can adapt to any situation. There are multiple forms available, including a shotgun, sub-machine gun, and a rocket launcher.
