It’s not uncommon for games to get remakes years later to give them a more modern look. The opposite are demakes, whose creators (usually amateurs) set themselves the task of reimagining modern games as if they were released many years ago on older platforms.
One of the latest examples of this was presented by the YouTube channel 64 Bits, showed the concept of an adventure game Stray for the original Game Boy.
Although it’s not a real game, the video demonstrates what a cyberpunk adventure about a cat could look like if it came out in 1992 and really existed.
The authors of the video presented the game as a side-scrolling platformer and recreated the first level, divided into 3 stages, starting from the separation of the caudate from his family and before arriving in the Dead City. The graphics of the demake were stylized as monochrome green pixel art and the sound effects were changed to 8-bit to match the era..
The 64 Bits channel also has other demake conceptsfor example, ELDEN RING for Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Mass Effect for Game Boy Advance and God of War (2018) for the first PlayStation.
