Resident Evil 2: Generally, fans of Resident Evil and horror games have a free game ready for download. By name, it’s not a Resident Evil game. Still, it’s so close that the game initially began as a remake of Resident Evil 2 before developing into the current independent title.
Daymare: 1998 is the game in question, and while you may currently download and keep it for free, this offer will end soon. For that unfamiliar, Daymare: 1998 resembles a Resident Evil game quite often when you squint.
Compared to the Resident Evil titles, it has an over-the-shoulder viewpoint, zombies to kill, puzzles to solve, and a similar general aesthetic. It started as a remake of Resident Evil 2, but Capcom ultimately decided against it, and the game came out under its brand later.
Additionally, the game is now free to play for horror enthusiasts. People may download the game for free on CD Projekt’s GOG store because an offer runs through December 30. To ensure you don’t lose out on the deal, you should make your claim as soon as possible because it will only be valid for 72 hours.
Daymare: 1998, according to the game’s creator Invader Studios, switches players between various characters as they experience all the hallmark elements of a Resident Evil game, such as a small-town zombie infestation, inventory management, collectibles to find, and “tons of references” to horror games from the 1990s.

Additionally, the game is only 22GB in size so it won’t take up much space on your device. If DRM-free games are essential to you, this one from GOG is DRM-free, as is customary with these titles. Even though free is free, it’s still a good idea to read the reviews before choosing whether it’s worth your time.

Some have criticized the game for having bugs and other problems and for lacking the Resident Evil charm that makes earlier games successful. In contrast, others continue to love it despite these drawbacks or critical comments. Since it’s free, you only give up playing time.
